Barn Charm - It's a Green One!

I spotted this barn after breakfast on Saturday so I made a special trip back to take a few pictures. From the front, it had a nice paint job, but I couldn't get a good angle on it with the camera. On the way back by, you can see where the barn used to be red and the paint brush didn't make it this far around. It's got a nice cupola, though.

Green in Silvana, Washington

You do have an eye for interesting barns. I like the diamond shaped windows.

Sure wish you were caravanning with me. Then we could explore Alpine while my truck get fixed. That is if they ever call or get here with a tow truck.

This is an awesome barn! We don't see any green barns here in Nebraska. Great capture. :)

That is one fine barn. I like its size and the interesting color is has been given. Very nice Barn Charm post.

Great photo of a wonderful old green barn -- the sprightlyness of the cupola and diamond windows combined with looking-tired feel of it with its roofless silo.

It's always so nice to find these old barns! It's even better if you have a camera on hand...
nice photo!

I love barns. I think it comes from helping my Dad with his horses.

I love this barn multicolors and all....and you post some of the most interesting small towns. I thought I knew Washington pretty well....but keep learning about new places from you.

Yes, green for sure! It has a rather steep roof, which I find interesting.

Elaine said...

Nice! It has a lot of character. It also looks like it has a new roof, so it should be around for a while.

It's at this point that many barns start to deteriorate....I suppose because the job of painting is just huge! Great photos...pretty cupola.

Rose said...

I made a comment but think I missed the word verification the first time around...so will say again that I love this...old barns really appeal to me.

Carletta said...

I love this! The cupola is rather ornate for a barn but it and the diamond windows do give it a lot of charm. As does the silo
I love the two-toned color. It gives it a wonderful primitive look that I like.
You would think with a barn that big you wouldn't need those storage sheds in front. :)

Great barn...love the cupola...the paint job gives it character.

dogsmom said...

It does have that swayed look even though it seems stable enough. Maybe they were running low on paint and getting tired so just gave that last area a thinner coat of green.
The window eyes and haymow door mouth give it a surprised look.

Tricia said...

That IS a nice cupola & a GREAT barn all together! Something I've always wondered about these old barns... why would there be such nice windows in such an old barn? Did they plan to fix it up & then lose interest? Those diamond windows can't be cheap... I'm just thinking out loud (type) LoL!

Love both barns & would love to explore them... of course! LoL! =)

I love, love the light green color and the "crown" atop that barn! Poor Silo is topless!

Kim, USA said...

I like the cupola it's rear here in MI to find a barn with cupola. The silo for sure is for the corn and it looks like that this barn is still in used. Thanks for sharing!
Red barn

Great shape on that barn. :-)

Wow. I've not seen a barn in that shade of green before. Lovely! The windows are wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
