You'd better start looking for a really, really BIG penny if you're gonna "sell" that one to these guys!  Grin

Man your wife must LOVE IT when you drag stuff like that home!

Sadly, I live in a two bedroom 1300 SF condo, so there'd be no place to hide it!!

Nice!
Got any more pictures of that building?
The two will be definitely used as inspiration for my next project (currently in the planning stages)

Craig -
Is that a model... in 1" scale? You built it? Magnificent!
I take it this will be part of a photo backdrop for some of your auto models, or is it something else?
It's nice to see someone else here model in a LARGE scale.

Marty,   I do have some more pictures of this farm.....but the ones i have left show the building falling down Sad and in bad shape.  Are you looking for pictures like that??  I do have some pictures of another cool barn i took a couple weeks ago on a trip i took up north of a barn that's not falling down.             Chuck,    I went back today to see if i could get that sliding door I wanted that door for quite some time now....Its one of my pictures that is my favorite's Grin and this is what i found Angry   I though they were going to start tearing it down today but they started over the weekend.  I talked to the owner today and said he would sell me some wood?? But all the stuff i wanted was on one other building had the same paint that was on the door i grabbed. Im pissed  Angry

I hate to see old farms torn up. Can't they just go on forever proudly and honorably? I wish more of those old structures could be preserved somehow but wood does have a lifetime.

Anyway, Craig you are one devoted collector. Well done.

John,    I hate to see old farms disappear too....Ive seen way to many in my area get torn down Sad   Ive noticed if the roof stays good it last's.  Once the roof goes then the rest follows.  This one farm has been empty for a long time since the 80's i think.....been watching it for along time. I don't know what it is about old Barns but i always had a strong interest in them at a young age Wink  Here's another 2 pic's.... check out the old light in upper corner of barn the shade fell off and was laying on the ground....i grabbed it Grin   Craig

Thanks Craig,
I was just looking for inspiration.
I will be building that dual paneled slider!

On an episode of this old house the wall to the master bedroom was old galvanized corrugated.
The bedroom door was a slider too, I went ga ga over that.
Lots of classic signs around and an old furniture cart for a coffee table!
They also used weathered siding inside somewhere, really a neat house, one of my favorites.
I believe it was in Mass.

This sort of destruction has been going on for hundreds of year over this side of the Pond , and on far more prestigious buildings than the farms in these photos . For example , since WW2 I believe there have been around 400 stately homes destroyed because people have been unable to keep them going . What is more upsetting is the thought of all the millions of man hours of skilled craftsmanship that have been wasted . It wouldn't be so bad if the materials were all reused , but a good proportion of it has either been burned or used as hardcore . Bastards .

   Grrr , don't get me started ,

Good photos Craig. There are lots of old decrepit barns around the village here and some great weathering references. Once we get settled in, I'm planning on taking a few photo excursions to record some of these structures before they're gone for good.
