Notice the lattice like work under the eaves...this is the second barn I have seen this way. I would love to know what all the ventilation was for...was it for hay stored in the loft? Around here, the way the wind blows, I would think it would still allow a lot of rain and snow to get blown in some of the time.
It has some wear, but I think it is still pretty sturdy and I think it is still used. Also, notice the door the ladder leads to, it looks like it has new hinges.
Well, that's my entry for Tricia's Barn Charm meme...I hope if you have a barn that you will join. I love this meme...I have been photographing barns for so long...you can look in my labels on both this and my Pics & Pieces
blog, and quickly see that they are a favorite subject for me. I love seeing the barns from different places, and have a special love for the ones with rock foundations. We don't have many of those right around here, so I really enjoy seeing them.
