My father built this barn in the 1950s.


I like it.

That's an old beauty! Love it! I sure wish I could see my dad's old barn again. There's just something about old barns...

Barns that are too perfect have very little character to them, I think. This one oozes character.

Very charming! I love the washed out gray siding. I hope it stands for a long time.

I like it to! What a great barn to have in the family. Better yet you had a dad that could actually build something. My father started to add a closet to my brothers bedroom and the 2x4 frame was all that was completed 10 years later when the house was sold.

I can imagine it in all its new glory! Of course it's beautiful with the more rustic look as well.

Amy how awesome to have this photo of a barn your own dad built. I have one that I posted a long time ago of one that my grandfather built which was over a hundred years old. How much personality these old barns have. Have been looking through your lovely blogs and am so jealous that you are retired. I can only guess how wonderful that must be. Soon!!! Anyway, so nice to meet you, and will look forward to getting to know you! Jeanne from Butterfly Tales...

How nice! Living in the city I don't get to see barns often. Thanks so much for sharing.
