This is a barn I've shared a few times before. I was surprised to see how bad the roof looks. The last time I shared it, there was only a slight curve to the roof. Here it is then, and here's a picture of it in 2011. Sad to see a nice looking barn go!
There's a busy road near me that I drive frequently. It runs along a lot of farm land, and set back behind the fields, I could see a barn. Last week I decided to brave it and drive up the two track to get a better look.
Here's the view about a third of the way up the path.
This was as close as I got. I didn't want to run into someone and be accused of trespassing. You can't see a lot of the barn, but what I could see sure looks pretty against those trees!
This is a barn I pass by frequently. It's set way back from the road with fields in front of it. It's a big barn, with a huge roof. I like seeing the white color against the trees, especially with the colors starting to change.
My husband took me out for a morning of driving on the country roads, looking for barns. This was one of my favorites! There's so much to like about it; the stone foundation, the weathered wood, the tractor tucked into the space on the left side and one window on the side and the front. Also, there is a little cross type cutout above the front window. Such a charming barn!
This may be one of the most beautiful barns I've ever seen! It's at the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan. This museum has 8 historic barns, which are filled with gorgeous cars. This barn along with some of the others were dismantled and then reassembled at the site.
We were driving home one night last week and my husband decided to take the indirect route home. I always enjoy that - you never know what you might find! On this evening we found something good. He was driving along when I yelled "stop" because I saw this great barn being worked on. Being the good husband he is, he stopped on the side of the road so I could get a few pictures.
They've torn much of this barn away to fix it up. It looks like it'll be almost new when they finish it.
Here's a close-up that shows a potential inhabitant. If you look closely, on the right side of the white stack of materials you can see a chicken.
This is the beautiful house next to the barn. I think I could live here!
I was driving to work this weekend, enjoying the beautiful sunrise and misty sky, when this farm scene caught my eye. You can't see much of the barn, but I thought the whole scene was really pretty! For more barns, visit Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.
I was driving down a back road a few days ago, when my daughter told me I had just driven past an old, falling down barn. I asked if it was worth turning around, and she said "You would like it". So, I turned around and found thisgreat old barn with a bonus tractor in it. It doesn't look like it's going to be standing for too long, so I'm glad she saw it!

I spotted this little barn at the end of a long drive. It's on property by itself with no house, but someone is keeping everything mowed nicely. I think the red barn looks nice surrounded by all the green. For more barns, visit Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.
I came across this abandoned barn on a gravel road, out in the country. As you can see there are trees and plants growing up all around it, so it's hard to get a good view. Next to it was an old house which was also abandoned.
It looks like it was a cute house in its day. This view isn't too bad, but the sides of this house were in worse condition. When I see places like this, I always wonder about the people who lived there, the kids who played in this yard and the work that happened in that barn. I'm sure those people would be sad to see how it looks now.
I found these sad remains of a barn on a gravel road the other day. It looks like it was long but not very tall. I can see lots of windows running near to the ground on the front of it. I like the little 4 paned window on the side too.
This old barn sits on a property my church purchased to put up a new building. Unfortunately that means it will be coming down at some time. It's not in the greatest condition though, as you will see in the other pictures.
Here's a side view of the barn.
The back is being taken over by vines.
Here's the upper loft, with plenty of daylight shining in.
This one taken through the old broken window shows the field in the back where the new building is planned.
This is a standard Michigan barn. This shape seems to be the most common in my area, and most of our barns are red. It's interesting that the side is faded to nearly gray, while the front remains quite red. I like the double doors on front and the tin roof. For more barns, visit Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.
