Barn Charm July 30

I was driving on a road out in the country when I came across this farm. I like the straight lines on this barn and the white foundation. And it's always nice to see horses!

This house goes with the barn. I included it because it's such a nice farm house!

It looks like some kids may live here. You gotta love a tire swing!

This is a barn that I drive by nearly every time I leave my house. I've posted it before, but had to share it again, because I love how it looks in the early morning light with the hay bales in the foreground.

There is a barn we frequently pass when we go to Bob's moms house. I have always liked it and wanted to get a picture of it, but the road is quite busy and I always thought I would get it later.
Well - last week there was an article in the paper about this barn. It was being taken down!
I live in West Michigan and this barn is being taken down and will be shipped to California where it is being rebuilt to be used as an office building.
I'm glad it's not just being demolished, but I was pretty upset with myself that I never got a picture of it. I went the next night and got these pictures of what remained of the barn.

You can see that this barn had a nice shape. I really like the little dormers on it.

Here is a view from the other side. In this view, you can really see the nice timber framing.

I wanted to include this cute little shed, which was just a few feet from the barn.

Now the barn is gone - I wish I could see it rebuilt, in it's new home!

This barn used to belong to my Grandpa. It looks exactly like I remember it looking when I was young, even the name. To the left of the barn is a small pond and when I was young, Grandpa would let us go fishing in it. Good memories!
Grandpa has been gone for 30 years now and it's nice to go past that barn and remember those times.

I wish I could have gotten a shot of this barn from the front, but it sat sideways next to the house. I like seeing the ramp built up to the big sliding door, and the garage door on the side.
