My Barn Charm

I posted a barn yesterday from our round about way of going to the Goose Pond area here in Indiana...well here is another from that drive. We were on our way home, when we spotted this one...it was hit the brakes and back up time.
I like this one so much...because it is aged I suppose. It is one that I would love to convert to a house if it were mine.
I was so happy that it was where I could take my time and snap a few different views. I don't get to do that near as much as I would like.
Even though I think the vine is pretty growing up the wall, if it were mine, it would not be there. I would have it pulled down too quick to talk about.
The roof needs a little bit of love...I hope it gets it because this is a beautiful barn in my opinion.

As always, if you want to see more barns, or if you have one please go see Tricia's Barn Charm meme...I so love seeing all the barns.

Jill said...

Love this one too. However, I love the vines on it. :) Great shots!

Sue said...

That would indeed make a fine house!

Bruce Clark said...

Great details in this barn. Nice captures, Rose.

Elaine said...

It's the best when you get a chance to stop and get some really good shots from different angles. Well done!

EG Wow said...

At one time someone sure loved this barn, Too bad the paint is chipping now!

Angela said...

Just beautiful! I almost think an old tree fell on that barn.

Ruta said...

I am so glad you backed up to get these shots! They are lovely...I do like the one with the vines.

I think this is my favorite barn I have ever seen. I am not sure why I am drawn to it, but I AM! Thanks for posting.

George said...

This is definitely a charming barn, and it would make a gorgeous home. I hope it gets the TLC it needs so it will be around for many years.

Mari said...

This barn is full of charm! It's got so many great features.

Dawna said...

I love this one!! So full of character, great pics of it!!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

This is a charming barn! It looks really well built, too. I hope they fix the roof on it, it's too nice to let it go.

Ellie said...

You are so right - this would make an amazing home. Lovely big building.

Tanya said...

this is a nice old barn!

Roan said...

I love this old barn. The peeling paint adds to its charm.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

It'll definitely be heartbreaking if they leave it to rot... Why don't the owners see the beauty in these old barns like we do?

I also wonder how many have stopped to take photos of these old barns like we do, too!

Thanks for joining, Rose

This is a fine looking barn with excellent potential for conversion to a home. Very nice series!

I love the wall of this barn the chip paint that is very beautiful to become a texture for photos. And I agree with Don this is pretty to be converted for a home. Awesome!

One of my favorites among your barn images: color, texture, nostalgia!

Woody said...

That's a nice color and I like the details on the doors.

The roof on my barn photo is slate - a very common barn roofing material around here, so it must have been plentiful.

Sandra said...

i think you found my favorite barn. I love this one and would also like to live in it, but i would leave that beautiful vine. the photos are really good, i can feel it's age, so beautiful

Oh, this is beautiful! A rare color - most barns seem to either be red or weathered white.
Thanks for stopping by my place today, and commenting. I'm off to check out more of your posts!

Rose, this barn is amazing!! I somehow picture this lovingly renovated and made into a studio! Your photographs of it are fantastic.
Have a wonderful evening!

Mary said...

That's a neat one! Lots of charm there. Near Goose Pond? Of course you go north and I go south :-)

Evelyn S. said...

I would love to see a modern barn with the details found on these old wooden ones! Beautiful.

Small City Scenes said...

It is a beautiful barn, Rose. I am glad you got to take so many pics. I always wanted to fix up a barn to live in. I love the weathered wood look too. MB

Carole said...

That is a beautiful barn, and a bit different, which makes it even more worth keeping up and saving.

Is there a house close by, or is it sitting there all by its lonesome?

Thanks for sharing!
