Dave’s Barn has a new entrance and also some much needed repair to the structure.
Dave is proud of his carpentry skills which built the doors and the board covering for the wall.
The timber framing was executed earlier this summer by the talented Dan with concrete work by Marissa.
Dan and Marissa pose with their handiwork.
Marissa is a stonemason. She was responsible for the concrete work.
A formidable team!
Dan is a timber framer. A friend who owns a barn required some major repair and hired Dan to make the beams and install them. Dan is very very good at what he does and it was a pleasure to watch him work over three days to complete the job.
Meticulous and accurate in his approach it was impressive to watch him work.
A friend bought a barn. This is what it’s like inside.
It’s been a while since it was built.
The red doors on this barn have attracted my attention for years.
I took the opportunity to photograph it a couple of days ago.
This afternoon was a perfect afternoon. Bright sun, crisp air and no wind.
A classic winter day to photograph an old barn.
Summer, barns and tractors go together.
It’s been a very dull past few days. Here’s a summer reminder.
Whistler next week.
Simple and rural go together.
When Jack acquired the property the barn was in pretty rough shape. The floor was rotten and he had to remove a baler by connecting a chain and carefully hauling it out using a tractor positioned outside the building. The floor could not take the weight of both tractor and baler. He rebuilt the barn and it is now a stout and immaculate building ready to stand for another 100 years. Kit the horse uses the basement living quarters which open onto the field in the background.
Jack is skilled in a remarkable spectrum of life tasks.
Behind a neat house in Chisolm Township stands this doomed barn.
The damaged roof allows water onto the beams and floors. Farm friends tell me that is the beginning of the end because of the rot that sets in.
Deep in Chisolm Township.
A great summer it was. The colour of Autumn is beginning to develop.
The trees will be next.
