For me, as much as the house, I was looking forward to the little barn. After all, you can't live in the country and not have a barn.
We commissioned Ryan to help us raise our little barn. It was satisfying to see it happen little by little. Gavin was small at the time, but he even got to help in the process. His little hand prints are in the cement floor. I love those little hand marks.
The barn has been standing for a few years now. As the years have passed, our barn has weathered. The paint is chipping in places. The weather has added character... like the weathered hands of a farmer. But like the weathered hands of a loved one, the barn is comfortable. The chipping paint makes it feel... right.
