Tracing the fall of the barn.
My last post was Part 1of the story of a nearby farm. I liked to take pictures of the barns and other buildings in different seasons, different weather, and different light. In the course of 5 years, it went from a struggling business, to a source of barn siding. Read a little more here.
As I noticed the buildings falling, I actually thought of people I know who use barn wood for cabinetry and crafts, and wondered if someone would harvest the wood. One day, I noticed the process had started.
|Caution tape warned of work in progress|
|Heavy equipment was on site, but you could see that the wood was removed to spare it much damage.|
|Work in progress.|
|Down to the foundation where it had already collapsed. You can tell that the structure had been added to over time, judging|
from the construction materials.
|The skeleton remains.|
A few weeks later there was very little remaining.
|Silos always seem to be left behind.|
|Stones and blocks.|
|Wildflowers taking over.|
|A nice homey perch.....|

The barns are gone, but the farm remains.
