Barn on the move: farewell to Maine

Top image: This is the site, muddied days of rain, roiled by tractor-trailer tires - and sans barn. It is humbling to think that this site has not been clear like this for over a century. Our barn has stood witness to the cycles of rain and sun, snow and wind, sowing and reaping for generations. Packed in its trailer it awaits the next chapter in its long life of service, this time to house a family in place of cows.

Bottom image: Disassembled and packed in a box trailer our barn seems miniscule. To be added on top of this pile: replacement purlins and sawn planking supplied by Maine Antique Structures.
