May 20



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.

Lovely barn! You can definitely see which side gets the most sun. Looks like it's leaning back just a bit. As you get older you have a tendency to want to do that....

I live in Illinois and our barns look very similar to yours.

I like the lean in the barn. It gives it character.

I like that one side is more faded - and that the double doors have bright white trim on the windows. This barn has a lot of charm.

It looks like we should slide those door open and have a party in it! :)

You are so right Mari..Barns do seem to be mostly red in Michigan and this one is really nice. Love the white windows. I would guess that the side that is gray faces the WEST since all our weather comes from that direction and the sun probably bleached that side pretty good. Nice shot!

I love old red barns like this one!

Leaning a bit, but still grand.

That's how our barn was when we moved in. Faded on the south side, where it receives the brunt of weather conditions, but with paint still clinging for life on the other sides. lol

My barn(s) for this week can be seen here....

Beauty of a barn!

Thank you for the comment about abortion... It's a horrible subject, but I'm glad to hear you're against it... God bless you =)

Looks like a portion of the lower wall is made of concrete block. Interesting mix of building supplies.

I love barns! Whenever we travel I try to catch photos of different barns. Lovely photos at your blog. Thanks for sharing this Monday evening!
