    I have a 200 year old barn on my property it was taken car of pretty well .

    It's all pegged post and beam construction and the roof line is still straight as an arrow. I re-roofed it a couple years ago and had to jack up the ass end quite a bit.

    I'm currently finishing a pool room and bar on the second floor

    I like to see them looking faded and run down. A recent road trip through Pennsylvania was a visual delight for me.

    I'd love to sit in a field and paint them. I'm so fascinated by them.
