Here are some more pictures of the barn. The Timbers are #1 & better Doug Fir S4S. The siding is 1x12 #2& better Rough Sawn Doug Fir, with matching 1x3 battens. Tom has been working on the siding, Needs to get that done before he can put the rest of the roof deck on. It is really coming along.

A Barn Grows In Iowa
Dreams come in all sizes and shapes. This one grew with the corn in Iowa. You hear a lot about people tearing the old barns down but not about those building them back into the landscape. This is a labor of love. I asked Tom if he had any completed pictures yet , and he said he was down to a one-man crew, so the finishing touches were still a ways off. But he welcomed his Bear Creek Lumber salesman, Mark Buck to stop by with his tool belt, any time. “Been waiting for him to show up!” , Tom (pictured above) said with a grin, over the phone.
