The barn is the focal point of our property. Not only does it provide shelter for the wood-kiln...it serves our family in several ways. This time of year, I spend a couple hours a day with my two little ones in there...doing art, "jamming tunes" and riding tricycles and scooters. We use the barn for events plus any projects that require protected work space. Wood, metal and clay are the primary mediums that I work with...so the barn is a kind of swing-space. Having friends and family to help out along the way in building this structure has been key...I am soo grateful!
