Barn #1 (first we visited)

The first barn we visited was #7 of the 12 on the list. There was a short talk about barns beforehand and we learned the English style barns had the doors on the sides where the snow slid off the roof.  I guess this wasn't a problem in England but it was in New England so later barn iterations put the doors on the other two sides.  

So we learned right away that we have an English style barn.

Going up in the loft of this one we saw the same wood lapping floor that Dan removed from our loft. That wood was taken by a neighbor who wants to build a barn one day.

And like our loft stored up in this one were doors and windows.

We could look over the edge at the main work area with the wagon wheel light.

This barn had a basement that opened on a lower level since it was built on a hill.

This rock wall was completely removed, the sill resting on it replaced, and drainage put along the floor.

It's used now for storage of old things including this truck.

I was tempted to ask the owner if I could buy a wagon rim leaning against the barn but Dan said "Don't".

There was a For Sale sign on this yellow beauty.  Anyone interested let me know and I'll share the address and owner's name with you.

One other photo -

This was the backdrop on the stage at the Plainfield town hall painted by the Art Deco artist. Maxfield Parris, who once summered in this area.

Blogger aggravation
Some of your comments are ending up in Spam for no apparent reason.  I tried putting on Moderation but that didn't help.  I've taken it off now but still find comments in Spam.  Anyone else have this problem or solved it?
I sent feedback to Blogger.  I hope it can be resolved.
