Happy Canada Day

Happy Canada Day, Canada turns 145 years young today. This is the old barn that moved in next door this past week. The neighbours, standing in front, had a property with this barn and in selling the property they had to destroy the barn or move it, so they moved it. With the added roofs on the side, it measured 60 feet wide.  The barn has a new roof and the front has metal siding.

The side view shows the age of the barn better. See how some of the bracing went though the barn. I guess the old barn was set up for horses with stalls and automatic water bowls. They are talking about taking some of the stall out but may get horses and leaves a few stalls.


  1. wow that would be some challenging thing to move- It would have been quite the sight to see travelling whatever distance it did. Nice to see that it was not destroyed but reused.
    Happy Canada Day!

  2. Happy Canada Day! It is cool to see on old barn saved and continue its useful life. Hope they will be good neighbors.
