I've driven by a number of barns and livestock sheds over the years, but have never seen one like this, located near Fort Ann, NY.

Greg,

If you are still in the area we love to have you stop over this afternoon.
We are only about 45 minutes from where you were yesterday in Ft Ann. I'll
send you a PM with my phone number and address.

Gregg,

That is some barn! The original owner must have been prosperous. Besides the interesting design, that fancy woodwork and the slate roof go well beyound 'functional'!

Wow! that really is the most decorative barn I have ever seen.I would love to see an old photo of this gem,it's so sad to see such a beautiful structure fall into disrepair.Was there a farm house or should I say estate home that went with this grand old barn? Thanks for taking the time to photograph and post the photo's Gregg!

WOW!
That went right into my photo file. Definitely would like to try a build of that one.

Here is another very unique wood structure located on Rt2 near the New York border. So many great details to use from this one.

Hey Gregg,regarding the roof,Bruce referred to it as being a slate one,and at first glance I would have agreed with him.But upon viewing it a second time it actually appears to be a decorative metal roof can you confirm what it really is? And thanks again for posting this very interesting building. Oh ya one more thing Gregg did you by chance photograph the other/backside of this building and if so could you please let us see what it looks like?.Thanks again!

Greg,

That barn roof is slate, although there is corragated metal covering the slate on the left side. I did not photograph the back side of the structure because there was no one around to ask permission to walk into the property. Perhaps I will get more lucky the next time I pass by.

Gregg

Here is a shot of a house located in Rutland, VT. I plan on duplicating this weathering/color combination on one of my structures. Should be quite a challenge.

Gregg, the rounded building will be perfect for scratchbuilding and to fit on a curve on the layout. Your finds are really great, thanks for sharing them. Pat
