Great job! Salvege some wood from the old barn and build some keepsakes from it. I’m still building stuff from my dad’s barn. It means a lot to the family. See my projects for my granddaughter’s Bryer Horse barn built from her great grandfather’s barn wood. She and her mom treasure it and that would have made my dad very happy.

Being born and raised in the Central Michigan area on a Dairy farm, I recognize this style barn from my younger years.

You put some major work and hours into this post and beam construction reproduction, it’s a wonderful project and a real memory inducer.

Pleasure to met another Michigander farmboy here on LJs Site.

Thanks for sharing. – Len
