Is perfect for my entry in Lisa’s Macro Monday!
Oh I wish, I wish I had taken pictures of the barn when it was still up. A storm blew it down. It was more than 150 years old. When the barn came down it was very unsafe, and had to be dealt with. This all happened before we took over the farm. Its been great to see the barn come down over time. Its been inspiring to see what got reused. We figure if we would have dealt with it ourselves, it would have used up 25-50% of our budget. Instead we end up with a beautiful field for camping. In the last five years we have been clearing another area to the same purpose, but now with much less result. The camping area we are clearing is still a vine and sapling death trap of red stemmed bushes (we think dogwood) and wild cucumber. We took a weed whacker with a saw blade attached to the end to the mess this year.
Oh yeah! The Barn.
And this is what the barn looks like today.
Its been amazing watching it happen. And it was fun to find some of the last iron still left on the building.
Its been raining and grey for a while now! Maybe some sun on Thursday. But rain in the forecast every day this week, even when sun is forecast.
This is my favorite picture, I took it zooming in on the wall from afar.
