Still Standing

Still Standing

I wonder what this old building was used for. It's too small to be a barn or to store hay, it's too far from a house to be a tool shed and too big to be a pump house. Any ideas?

  2. Ahhh, the old building pics have returned. I am happy.

    It could be a tool shed/pig barn. A lot of old farms would let their pigs run loose (hence the wild pig population in America) but always leave a door open for them to hide from the weather and predators. When it wasn't pig season, tools and equipment would be stored in the buildings instead of carrying them all the way back to the main barn. Just a guess.

  7. So happy to see the old rustic buildings which I think are one of your trademarks. Great job.
    Perhaps its a guesthouse for unwanted visitors..guess that wasn't very nice but its the first thing I thought about.
    Maybe its the home for the Pigs I have on my post. Sam suggested it could be a pig barn...

  12. I still make it a point to send cards and letters to friends via snail mail. Your buildings would make a wonderful card collection!
