Greg,

Hmmm, a guy with the handle "Lurker" is interested in pictures of backsides. Why am I not surprised? I drove by The Barn the other evening, on the way to Carl's and was able to take a couple quick shots, including one of the rear. This beauty has to get built!!

Gregg, did you measure anything to be able to scale the building? I agree that it needs to be build and have saved all your pics to make an attempt at it in the future. The afore mentioned question would be much appreciated, thanks Pat

Pat, Pat, Pat. Let me get this straight. I am 3000 miles from home on business, driving down a country road, find this barn and I am supposed to stop, pull out a ladder and tape measure and get all the dimensions of this baby before the farmer decides to introduce me to some buckshot? (It's bad enough that Lurker has me sneaking around taking pictures of the backside.) I cannot believe how demanding you all are!! Ok, I'll fess up, I actualy thought about how to scale this beauty. So I did the best I could do under the circumstances and made sure my Hundai rental car was in one of the pictures. (If you look back you will see the white SRV). We can get the length of the car and then scale everything from there.

Thanks,

Karl,

Yes, this unusual structure demands to be modeled. Notice how it even sits on a sloping grade. Because it was so interesting, I tried to take enough photos to work with. Here are a few more to help us out.

That last close-up was particularly valuable, as I didn't realize the diagonal panels were also clapboard siding...

This set is a super study in decoration and weathering, thanks much for posting them all!

Dave,

Yes, there are some great details in this structure. And the diagonal application should give us a whole new set of design ideas to work with. Here are a few more shots of the clapboard siding.

Great shots Gregg, those small diagonal siding inserts will give those of you who have a stack of "it'll be usefull for something someday" little offcut pieces of sheet clapboard saved a use for them

As you appear to be taking requests Gregg...... could you hop up onto the roof and see what modeling gems are up there, with the camera of course

Any idea of the exact location, street name, zip, etc, google earth should supply a layout/floorplan.

Thanks for taking the time to shoot and post.

I think Pat is right. You should have risked life and limb and carry at all times a Stanley 25 foot tape measure. If you should get arrested, we'll all chip in for the bail and if unfortunately the buckshot finds it's mark first, we will be glad to visit you in the hospital. I tip my hat to such a brave soul, who risks his life and limb, to 'bring home the bacon' for his fiends and fellow forum buddies.

Well when clapboard is done -correctly-, the nails holding each row of clapboard are hidden by the overhang of the next row.

If you look carefully at the side shots, you can see the subtle change in weathering color along each vertical joist. But no nail holes!

The backside of the barn, in the first shot of this page, is absolutely gorgeous.

Well Gregg, I'm glad to see your brain was working just like mine when it came time to scale. I see a few other items in your additional pics that can also be used. So you mean to tell me that the thought of a little buckshot would have scared you off?? NNNaaaah I don't believe that. I think even the color of the storefront are really well thought out. Now as Peter said if you really wanted to help us out you should have gotten on the roof to take some detail shots from up there as well. LOL thanks so much, Pat
