    Cool pics.

    We got 21" of snow here in SE SD over 12/23 - 12/25. It is costing our city (Population 100,000) over $500,000 for snow removal. On the positive side...it has been above 0 F.

    Looks like you live in a really nice place. Looks like it can be just as nice in the green summer months also.
    Stay warm.

    No I did not build it. it`s is build in the 1750-1800.
    They use it to store grain.

    Ok, so we have a picture of two different barns. The first barn picture shows it setting on a low foundation or pillars and it appears to be painted a red color.

    The second barn picture indicates a level barn on a stone and post/beam foundation. Correct?

    That is a very unusual, but fascinating lock. I could not access the wikipedia link.

    What species of trees were the logs?
    Where the logs hand hewn?
    The corner notches appear to be a "saddle" notch...is that correct?
    Does it have the original floor?

    The second barn picture is not mine barn.Its how I will make the new foundation.So it become level.
    The logs are pine and they are hand hewn.
