The Barn Collective

Today we have some barns that are currently in use.  So many of the barns in or area are in disrepair - it is nice to see useful barns.
 The owner has added a large garage door to this barn, not sure if that means he is storing his RV in the barn or just wants a convenient modern door.  It is good to see that it is being used for something.
 Well kept barn
 A wonderful barn with apple trees nearby and interesting dormer windows - though the barn does look like it is showing its teeth.
This appears to be newly built and probably was never used as a barn, but the design mimics the old fashioned concept of attaching the barn to the living quarters.  The two large doors suggest another barn being used for a garage.

Wonderful collection of barn shots, the second one is my favorite. Have a great day!

Great barns...I wouldn't be surprised if the last 2 barns are inhabited by humans!

Most of these barns look to me a little to clean and tidy to be working barns. The second one looks like the closest to having a classic farm working life.

Look like some very nice barns there to me. So many of ours, if they are still used, are still just gradually deteriorating.

I like the look of the last barn. It indeed looks like new and they copy the design of the barn for their garage that is awesome. And yes these plants are well taken cared of. The white barn is so gorgeous.

The style of barn #2 with the extended roof over the hay mow door is my favorite. Thanks for linking up this week and I hope that you return again. Tom The Backroads Traveller

I love how each barn is making a 'face'! We see quite a few folks in our area using the classic barn shape for garages and even houses.
