A Project Unfinished

Filed under: Buildings — Laura R @ 2:13 PM

Although this barn was here long before its neighbors

 and there were thoughts and even attempts to give it new purpose

I think its days are numbered.

Although it can be purchased cheaply!


I heard that someone had the thought to convert it into rental income housing, but more likely it will be torn down. I hope someone at least uses the materials.


Linking up with:  The Penny Worthy Project 
I think this would qualify for a Spooky Monday post
much more than Cielo’s Show Off Your Cottage meme.


To see some beautiful barns with charm  visit   Tricia and friends.

Homestead Revival Barn Hop  

I just found another Photo friendly farm theme linky – Fresh From The Farm’s  Farm Photo Friday.

  2. I hope so too… It could make a charming home; with some DIY. 🙂

  3. I hope it finds a new use…hate to see its life end….

  4. It would make a great house! It would be sad to see it torn down.

  5. There has been some interesting and characterful pieces of furniture made from old barn board. It would be a shame to have the whole thing go to waste.

  6. Interesting shape up on the side! There are so many people who love old barn wood; hopefully, it will have a second life.

  7. Oh, this could be so darling if the right person could get a hold of it. I just saw an article in the new Country Living magazine about turning your garage into a beautiful potting shed. This would be too big for that, but wouldn’t it make a darling summer cottage or retreat? I get these ideas in my head, but I don’t have all the know how to pull it off!

  8. Hopefully if they tear this barn down…the materials will be recylced. I love the old wood.

  9. It’s such a shame they’re going to destroy it… I wish someone would buy it & fix it up! Thanks so much joining… I love to see more people join in Barn Charm & see these old barns before they’re all just a memory!

  10. Reclaimed wood goes for big money. They really should sell it so that it can be reused. Nice shot.

  11. I love old buildings. I would hope that someone would salvage the wood! I would go there and do it myself.

  12. It has such beauty – I’d almost hate to touch it!

  13. I hope someone can keep the materials to re-use too. Maybe I should fly over…

  14. Old buildings certainly have character. They are a lot of work to fix up.

  15. It does look like a great character-filled place. It must be so full of history.

    Best wishes,

  16. It would cost more to save it sadly.

  17. The house looks like it’s about to fall in!

    Comment by Susan Evans — March 15, 2011 @ 9:02 PM

  18. I hate seeing these old barns just fall into the ground. I hope someone rescues it for something. I wonder what the round hole-patch was from? maybe a cannon ball? LOL!

  19. We have a local artist that buys barns that are to be razed and uses their beautiful aged wood for GORGEOUS art work.

  20. Oh wow, that looks like it’s in bad shape

    Comment by Louise — March 15, 2011 @ 10:20 PM

  21. Where I live, it probably wouldn’t be allowed to be torn down. We have a lot of old barns around here that have heritage status, but the owners don’t have the cash to fix them up so they just fall down eventually.
