Graywood Barn in March
The solar panels on Graywood Farm's restored barn give off a glow in this March 2014 look at the barn. The supports that now hold the south walls and keep the barn sturdy look like flying buttresses. They're definitely a bow toward the power of architecture and cement.
This barn has never had any paint on it. In this photo it looks kind of brown and ochre and taupe, but when you drive by, it lives up to the name of the farm, "Graywood Farm."
Our family is proud to have been able to restore this barn, since so many of the vintage barns in our part of Michigan have been demolished. One of these holidays there will be lighted up stars on the barn. Maybe next year that can happen.
