and MORE! Some are before and after shots of the cleaning so pay attention. Sorry for the random scenery photos in there, I just thought they were pretty. Also, we have a bunch of little critters that come through and visit us while we work and if you don't bother them they will just sit and watch for a long time, like our little chipmunk friend...

We climbed up onto the support beams at the top of the hay mow and took some photos out the window. Don't look down! ^.^

Okay! Phew!!! LOTS of photos now! We will be continuing to clean up for winter, and do some repairs to (hopefully) last untill spring when MAJOR chaos breaks loose and the barn deconstruction actually begins. Sorry for the wait untill then, we had planned to get it down before winter, but my father's job needs him back sooner than we thought and the weather has closed in fast this year. (is it really already fall??) So I will post updates every once in a while untill the actual deconstruction happens. Thanks for keeping up so far!! Oh and at the same time we will be taking down this barn in spring we will also be taking down a smaller barn up the road too, so there will be many pics to come!!

Wow! That barn is amazing! I just love looking at old barns. I'm just a weirdy like that. Haha. That barn is honestly a lot more fancy and "state of the art" than the barn we milk in at my work. LOL. And I love the tree growing in the milk house. Hehe

What a stunning old barn. I don't think I'd have the heart to take it down, I would have to win the lottery and pay someone to reconstruct it to keep in standing strong.

Look forward to the pictures even though I might shed some tears when it starts to come down.

I have a knack for old barns also...even though this barn is old and falling down there is still something very beautiful about it.

Man can see what man made from the seat of a car, but you can see what God made by the back of a horse!

Wow! What a beautiful barn. I am excited to see the pictures as you progress, but am a bit sad to have to wait lol. Cold weather closed in fast here too, so I understand where you are coming from.

Great pics! I love the pics from the hay mow. Awesome. You actually got across the height of that! I find that hard to do with a camera. Beautiful cleaning up job. That's the part I always loved and hated -- loved because sometimes you'd find treasure and hated because sometimes it was just boring old dirt and garbage. Have you found any treasures?
