This is a model that my wife built of the barn that we had when we lived in Pennsylvania. There are a lot of pictures but there is also a lot to show. The model depicts most of the projects that we did to the barn and the daily use of the barn.




We had the barn roof painted by a 75 year old man that called that project the best one of his life. He was a character and we had to have him on the barn roof.




The horses were always chewing the siding and we had to constantly replace and repair the windows and the siding.












Some closeups taken inside the machine shed.













The west side of the barn needed new siding and we hired some Amish carpenters to do that.









Weeds around the barn:




Working on the siding:




Putting in fence posts:










Unloading the pickup truck of shavings from the sawmill that we used for horse bedding.




A few interior shots of the upper level:





























A few pictures of our horses:













It happens:

Only looked quickly when I first saw you post this build. Had some time to look more closely at your photos

This rates as one of the best Barn scratchbuild I have ever seen.

Thanks for sharing
