The grainery was the last building to go on my late grandfathers farmstead. The new owners wanted a fresh start from the ground up. Some see the old buildings as an eyesore, I see them as a vision of the past, hard work and tough people who knew what real work is all about. My parents still own all of the farm land which I hope will always be in the family. Every summer as I was growing up we visited the farm, I will always have fond memories.
What a lucky family you have to owe such beauty! #'s 1 and 2 are just stunning. Not an eye sore at all as far as I'm concerned! Ive never seen a building demolished by burning it down. Is this a regular occurrence?
Tell me it isn't so! They burnt the old barn down? Terrible!!! I know someone who took the wood from an old barn, wood worked it and now there whole house has it for flooring! Did you take anything from the barn? I think the barn has much more character!!!
