Colorful Barn Roof
The barn at Graywood Farm will be getting a new solar roof very soon. In the meantime it is covered with tarps, giving it a colorful appearance when viewed from a distance.
Last Thursday's storm produced nearly two inches of rain. Rain is not a good thing when you are putting a new roof on an old barn. Hence, the tarps, a precautionary measure against more rain.
The barn loft, empty for now, has a new oak floor. Here's a link to a blog post from two summers ago with a June 1991 photo of this barn in use during haying season.
You can read lots more about the restoration work at Ed Eichler's Graywood Barn Blog.
One last note for today. My dad, Stan Hayes, died four weeks ago today. He would have loved seeing this photo and reading about the Graywood barn. I miss him.
