Barn

By lindin
This picture was taken on my road trip Saturday. This is not an abandon farm, but clearly is a nonworking one at this time. Barn is really in pretty good condition.

Super image, Especially given the conditions your shooting in.

This image makes for a great comparison to the farms here in the UK, I guess they serve similar purposes, But the designs & architecture are quite different.

A lot of our older barns, Say 100 to 200 years & older, Are very popular for conversion into residential houses, It's even considered quite fashionable......Smile

However the modern single span steel & concrete one's will never be anything else..!

EDIT; I should add that I live in a barn conversion, The barn is estimated to be getting on for 200 years old.....That's English Oak for you, Way better than Steel.....Smile
But looking at this barn of yours, It would make a fabulous conversion into a house.......Smile

This type was probably built in the early 1900's . When all the neighbors got together and built the barns. This is a small one, some were huge.
And yes some have been turned into other things.

Just someone that lives there has kept the doors closed and I has had a coat of paint probably 20 years ago.

The barn where I grew up is now in ill repair. People that bought the place left doors open on all the outbuildings. They are all in poor shape now. One big building was blown down last spring, big doors wide open let the wind in during a storm and it went.

Very pleasing image - it just shouts "America" (to a Brit, at least).
