March 22, 2006 – Barn Time

Today, a student from Iowa State came out to visit our barn. The class was doing a project and was looking at “Adaptive Reuse” of barns. She came out and asked some questions, took some pictures, and we lamented about the vanishing barns

Here is a collection of blog entries that show renovation in progress or other interesting local barns.

  1. WOW! What progress you’re making on your place! Congratulations!

    I miss seeing old barns- we don’t seem to have too many around here. When we lived in Michigan and Indiana we’d drive around and try to spot old barns!
