Finally talked to the right person and got permission to stop and take some photos of this wonderful old barn.
Well over a hundred years old.
Used by the same family for several generations.
But that doesn't mean there weren't some really cool features.
Look at the rafter work in the barn roof!
The boards were a mixture of circular and band sawed wood.
Look at the back roof lower corner.

It was located on some property near my Log Mentors lake.
We would pass it on our way to the little pond he had.
Still saveable, but would need to be quick.
The bottom logs are shot.
But at one time wide boards have been put over the gaps.
You can see the second floor logs above the door.

He is an artist, photographer and someone who is always interested in how something works.
Once while visiting he became very intrigued with this original door latch on the Pitts blacksmith building.
At the time he was remodeling his basement using lots of old lumber and even some log building techniques in the build (even chinking between some lumber to add the log cabin look),
Old lumber attached a little differently but works exactly the same.
See what you can do with a little imagination.
