Guess what......another barn


 This one I know is from Illinois...not too far from me.  I have wondered about the upstairs windows.  I actually wonder if it has an upstairs or are they just for light.

Looks beautiful Rose...I love that dark roof. Those may be small windows or even ventilators to let in light !!!

It looks as though there are some access hatches in the upper level on the end of the barn. My guess would be that hay or straw was loaded into the upper floor via these hatches using a bale elevator. It could then be thrown down to the animals that were kept at ground level during the winter months. That system used to be used frequently in the UK. Does that make sense in your area?

Hay loft needs light...?

I like the shape of this one. I'm betting there is some kind of loft in the top. It looks like there is a door between two of the windows.

I'm thinking a hay loft?!

I think there is a floor up there, a loft maybe. I love the patina and color of this beauty. I always thought I would like a restored barn to live in.. that was in my young years though. now i just want something the size of an RV to keep the need for cleaning down

COuld be a storage loft. A fine looking barn from this angle.

It looks like there may be a door between the two windows upstairs. I wonder if that is a hay loft? I love the barn's weathered appearance.

Such barns are likely to contain 'lofts', mostly of the type architects would term 'mezzanine'. YAM xx

At first I thought it was in good shape, then noticed the roof. But there's someone keeping the grass mowed around it, so it's possibly redeemable! Hay loft is upstairs on most barns.

Maybe there is a hay loft up there, and it needs some light.

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. I see your name on MadSnapper's and Ginny's blog, so I thought I would pop over.
I love barns and your statement on a few posts ago about having to take a drive by picture because of the road and no where to pull off.
Its so frustrating to see a great shot and not be able to take a picture of it.
Hope your week is good and I know I will be back again.

I would guess those windows are more for light than anything else, but, I'm not a farmer so what do I know.

This is a pretty barn. I like the shape of it. I love the weathered wood. I have seen windows like that in other barns and have always wondered what they were used for. I kept thinking ventilation in the summer.

That's a nice old barn. I like it because it is different.

I do like the way you shot this with the extensive sky.

Beautiful capture on the barn and I like its outlook!

Haven't seen a barn with that exact shape before. Your barn photos always make me wonder about the history.
