One Brilliant Barn

These were taken at the Round Barn Winery in Boroda Michigan. The tasting building is a 1911 barn that was saved from destruction in the nick of time and reassembled on site by Amish craftsmen. It is glorious. (And the wine isn't bad, either.)

For my fellow barn lovers, here's a link to the slide show of the barn being dismantled and reconstructed: Round Barn dot com.

An incredible re-invention converting an old building into a masterpiece. Gorgeous.

This ceiling s amazing - I feel that I am falling down into a wicker basket - expecting to bounce off of some yarn and not hit the pointy ends of the knitting needles...well, this ceiling allows my imagination to run wild :)

Glad to hear it was saved, it breaks my heart to see a barn fail. I like the lines in the first one, monochrome was definitely the way to go for that one.
