One Old Barn

This old barn on a nearby country road I've passed by several times and finally one fine day I stopped to take a few pictures.

With what appears to be bamboo growing inside I doubt anything is stored within.

And a stream flows alongside...not through it.

  1. even with its lattice-work roof and indoor garden, it still makes for a beautiful scene. :)

  2. Definitely has seen better days...but if you have to be a derelict barn, then having an indoor garden helps! Very nice find!

  3. Very nice. You captured its old rundown charm very nicely! I wonder how much longer it will remain standing. LOL!

  4. Even though it is bad shape it still is a charmer. I love the picture with the stream flowing next to it.

  5. it's such a picturesque setting too. I think it's really special how photographers get the last squeeze out of rustic buildings like this; so many will just pass them by and they have a story to tell don't they.

  10. Apart from the rusty Corrugated sheets. i think this would have been a Cedar shingle roof bet this old hay barn looked great in its hey day.

  12. If a person didn't require much frills, they could move right on in this barn. Winter would be brutal, summer and spring how fun. I love the creek flowing by.

  16. The roof is down to bare bones. You can't help but notice how much work would have gone into that roof when it was built.
    Love that little rocky stream beside it. In its prime this scene would have been very idyllic.
    Nice find!

  19. This is a pretty setting for a barn, sad looking as it is. I wonder if there was a house next to the stream at one time? Great photos! Pamela

  20. Looks like a beautiful piece of property w/ the stream running alongside & the mountains in the background... I'd love to see it in person! It would be nice to snag the sliding barn doors to repurpose somewhere else, I love that dark wood!

    Thanks for stopping & getting shots of this beauty =)

  22. It is just too bad that it is in such sad shape...that wood has that rich weathering color that I just love.

  23. That is absolutely gorgeous! The last shot is spectacular!!

  24. Oh how neat this place must have been in it's day with a creek running along side of it.

  25. Great find. It looks like spring has sprung. :)
