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.
This is a barn that I pass by frequently. I posted it here
on barn charm about 2 years ago, and I'm sad to say it's deteriorated
in that time. The roof has a bit of a curve to it now and more of the
shingles are gone.
Still - it's got some charm. I love the little dormer and the big sliding doors.
Here it is as you approach it on the road. The side view still looks pretty good.
(Trying again - I'm told the photo didn't show up last time)
We've had a robin build a nest right
outside the sitting room at the nursing home where I work. We all
watched as the nest was built and have seen Mama bird sitting on it. I
snapped this picture when she flew off for a short break. I hope to be
showing pictures of some babies soon!
