3 Days in the life of an old wooden barn.


                               

Before the wind.

                               

During the wind.



After the wind.

Any more and the whole caboodle will come down.

  1. Heavens those were strong winds. Looks very flimsy. Not much that man can do.....needs major renovation before it falls on someone's head!

    1. It's now cordoned off, with 'Danger' signs all around. It could be saved, but I doubt if the owner can be bothered.

  3. It's a shame when these old buildings are just left to eventually fall down.

    1. I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your barn down.

  5. Very much like a barn from my parents' first home in Connecticut, which fell down during a hurricane. A local artist took a lot of the wood for his work. One of which, a stunning depiction of sandpipers hangs over our fireplace in France!

    1. It's a shame to see them go, but if one can use the old wood so much the better.

  6. Cro, the landscape is littered with old deteriorating barns in Nebraska, USA. The trend here is for contractors to buy the barns; dismantle them; and use the wood for covering interior walls on expensive houses. It gives the room a cabin look. There's, of course, quite a process to go through to eliminate the possibility of bugs and such in the wood. I've seen the end result and it's quite impressive. But then some old barns just end up being practice for firefighters.

    Have a great day.

    1. The one above still has a good basic structure, it's just the exterior cladding that's rubbish.

  7. A shame the owner didn't at least have the wood repurposed. I have a series of pictures over ten years of the deterioration into nothingness of a barn near me. A housing development has just begun there.

    1. It'll be interesting to see what he does do with it.... if anything.

  8. I live across the road from a barn that looks like that. It has been deteriorating for years and the owner has not done anything to restore it. Meanwhile, other structures have gone up. It serves me as a good marker when I give directions to my home.

    1. In this case we were all waiting for it to be turned into a wonderful home. The plans were amazing.
