Yesterday I posted on the work farm, owned by the Barn Doctor. A couple of weeks ago we found this barn while driving north from Homer, Michigan. I think it is beyond the help of the Barn Doctor.
This makes me really sad, to see a barn starting to fall down. The new barns are steel sided, single story pole barns and just don’t have the personality and beauty of these old wooden barns. We drove to Grand Rapids today, up M-50, and the countryside is dotted with beautiful wooden barns – usually red but also white, brown, sometimes yellow or grey. I think I’ll have to take the drive by myself so I can stop and take photos to my heart’s content. Hubby is wonderful about stopping and offered several times but I have a hard time getting lost in my quest for the perfect perspective if I know he is waiting in the car.
