Long Barn

During the coldest winter on record, our intrepid contracter John Payne graded and framed our Long Barn.  This also called for a retaining wall and a new road. Things are never simple!   My vision for this useful structure was to try to make it look like an English stable block while still getting the most function out of it.  I always think that function and design go hand in hand. 

This structure would be the biggest because it would be used to house all the tractors – I told you they were coming!   It would also house the shop, a room for storage and freezers and what would become the Bunk House, another place for friends and family to stay.
