What a sweet little barn! Looks like some we have around here. I'm looking through my photos now for my entry this week.

Sharon said...

Gosh, it's a log barn, in the purest sense! Very cute!

Catherine said...

It looks so nice and warm there!
xo Catherine

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

what a charming little barn indeed!

lovely barn photos.:)

Ellie said...

Oh what a ramshackle wee barn. It is still rather nice though.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Looks like it still provides useful shelter, and that's what counts! :)

Rain said...

So very familiar looking!! It is "charming" in a very manly-"cant get rid of this perfectly good barn" kinda way!!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Looks like it could use a little help.

Judy said...

That definitely is a charming little barn.

Rita said...

Looks like an old log barn that had help at one time but needs some more again. Am loving your barn series! Barns and fences have their own charm. :)

Roan said...

Extremely charming. Great find!

Fotokarusellen said...

Very charming. Great shots.

Jill said...

Falling apart but still providing. I can relate to that! ;)

latebloomerbuds said...

As I was looking, I was thinking yes, charming, but oh, needs work as it looks as if it could collapse. Then at the end of your post you said it needed TLC! Agreed! Margie

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

It functions as a good photography subject and that's a special purpose in a barn's life.

Sandra said...

this is my first ever viewing of a LOG barn, I love it. even better than your other charming barns. this one is really old i am thinking. I wish someone would spiffy it up and save it for the future.

Woody said...

Neat little barn. It looks like it was a log cabin with some metal siding added.

Julie G. said...

Now that's an old barn. I'm often amazed how structures like this continue to stand. Very nice!

Bob Bushell said...

It maybe charming but, it only needs a little blow and it will be deceased. The pictures are stupendous.

KAT said...

that HAS to be a "One of a Kind "
Fabulous !

ksdoolittle said...

I find old barns attractive photo ops, too. If only they could tell their stories!

Lois Evensen said...

Wow, that one goes way back. Neat images.

Jan n Jer said...

TLC is not the word for it! I wonder if it's still being used! Love the rustic charm!

Kathy said...

That's an oldie. Look at those logs. The tin was obviously added much later. I've seen a couple of these log barns lately and they're a relic of the past in this area. Great find and a good capture.

Lynne said...

It is like "taking a peek" into another life/day and observing the gathering of log and limb to build a covering for the animals. This photo, as do most all of yours, tells a story ...

grammie g said...

Hi Teresa...Yup...it is a charmer, and about to be a rubble pile..I love the tin roof!!

Furry Bottoms said...

Just how many barns are there around where you live? Wowza!

heyBJK said...

Wow, I wonder how old that thing is? It looks like it was built with logs and then covered with metal. I've never seen barn construction quite like that.

Sylvia K said...

What a delightful little barn and great captures as always! I would love to know its history. You don't see man log barns these days! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!

Sylvia

parker said...

Looking at it's bones, I believe there is probably a great story behind this structure!

dr momi said...

awwwhhh poor thing....but look at the cool way it was built!

Sall's Country Life said...

Geesh, I wonder which family settled in that log cabin? We are doing the interior of a new log house, should we start on that one next???

Margaret said...

In Texas, where shade is offered, it is usually greeted with gratitude by someone! :)

Karen said...

It's a tad droopy, but has lots of character.

Pricilla said...

A lot of TLC methinks

missing moments said...

Reminds me of little house on the prairie!

bailey-road.com said...

I'd love to know its story.

Barb said...

Very charming indeed - I like the colour of the roof.

Flora said...

Those needing TLC...are the best:)

Farm Girl said...

I like that, I wish it was mine. :)

Gone Country said...

Looks like a pioneer barn with some modern features! It's totally awesome!

Martha Z said...

What an interesting barn. It seems to be an old log barn latter sided with corrugated siding. Wouldn't you love to know its history, when was it built and who put on the siding?

barbara l. hale said...

Love that barn with its lived-in roof.

Inger said...

I wonder who lived there.

Diane AZ said...

Very cool log barn, I've never seen one before. I love the rust colored roof too!

ladyfi said...

What a faded beauty! Gorgeous.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

That is about the sorriest looking barn I have ever seen. It is like places I have seen in the wilderness of the desert in Baja, and people lived in them! I like it. Simply wonderful Theresa!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Texwisgirl, Similar to the one right across the pond from us but the one here is in much better condition (same color roof though). I sure like your post. Have a nice day today and enjoy the scenery.

Texan said...

Makes for good pictures, but yes surely in need of some TLC

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

What a cute little barn! Definitely needs TLC!

Robin said...

T, hmm, don't get to close and whatever you do, don't sneeze or you'll be wearing it!

Liz said...

Oh WOW!! I just LOVE your barns. It doesn't look like it will be standing much longer.
I have a collection of Aussie barns I must organise to link up...

Daniel said...

It's certainly a testimonial that construction methods back in the day were good. Might have been bit drafty though. I guess that's when they added the siding.

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Interesting that they've overlaid corrugated aluminum on the poles...

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

This one's an oldie but goodie! Great old barn!

Andrew said...

Your old barns are so lovely to see..

Giga said...

Przepraszam, ale ta stodoła nie jest dla mnie urocza :-(, zdjęcie tak :-). Pozdrawiam

Linda R. said...

Even though it needs some work it looks so cool!

Hugs, Linda

EG Wow said...

Love this with the sagging roof!

SweetMarie said...

Wow those logs are neat! It looks like the porch roof is about to cave in.

A Quiet Corner said...

Great photos, T...I keep forgetting about Monday's & Barn Day!...:)JP

Kerin said...

Love that barn !

Merry Christmas :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

That is a neat barn... Barn Charm is a neat meme--and it's fun to see all of the different barns from all over the country.
Hugs,
Betsy

Barbara said...

I really love that one!

Millie said...

I know I wouldn't want to stay there! It should be condemned! A goat could butt that thing and knock it down.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

The barn is truly charming and even with a little tuck here and there, it should outlive us all~

Montanagirl said...

LOVE IT! This is the best kind. Great shots!

Ms. Becky said...

that IS a charming little barn. you've no shortage of charm there, do you? I heard Texas may be getting some snow? I hope that's right. happy day to you TWG.

Lindsjö taxar said...

Thanks for stopping by. Yes and several other as Inger who is from Sweden too.

Carletta said...

Oh my, the bones underneath this old charmer!
I wish that was in my backyard.
You've documented a wonderful find!!

Chatty Crone said...

A charming old barn. sandie

Marissa @Life On Our Side Of The Mountain said...

I would love to know the history of barns like this. Love the logs!

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Looks like a haunted hang-out. Fun to explore if you're a kid! :)

Pat Tillett said...

You just don't see many log barns around these days! This one is a patchwork quilt of materials! Very nice...

Saun said...

Looks like it's going to take a nose dive. Nice shot

Rohrerbot said...

It may need a little tlc but then it would alter the charm:) I love old barns!

Chip "Rocket Man" Allen said...

I just have to get out with the cameras and do some shooting. These are great and they remind me of several old buildings I've been meaning to shoot.

Randy said...

I love the rusty roof.

Paula said...

Still has a little shelter for some wayward animal to keep the hot sun off if one wanted to.

gowestferalwoman said...

I am so much in wedding mode that when I see the barn wood in your photos all i can think of is "we could use those logs for benches and we could take a log and use it as a base for a rustic centerpiece"

but isnt that the way of the ones who are into recycling? lol But it almost seems sad when a barn is "let go" like this - its purpose is done and its people moved on...

Charlotte said...

Oh I wish I could relocate it to my backyard and give it the TLC it needs. I love the logs.

Dawn said...

Charming indeed! I love the ones in need of TLC.

Gillian Olson said...

Great old barn, but needs some attention soon.

Everything Changes said...

Great!

SquirrelQueen said...

That is a very charming find. It looks like the wooden structure is reasonably sound but the rest could use some help.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - looks like you got your pictures of this barn just in time. It does not look long for this world!

Cheers - Stewart M

Tanya said...

i just LOVE little log buildings....i wonder how old this barn is?

Deb said...

the stories that barn could tell...nice shots...

Joe said...

Not many of the old log barns left.

Candy C. said...

It looks as though someone stuck siding and a roof on an old log structure! Too cool!

Rose said...

Oh, wow, this is one of your best barns yet...I would love to know how old it is.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

My goodness, you have sooo many comments! =0

So, they started w/ a log barn & then covered it w/ metal? It's very interesting, indeed... gotta be a story there!

Thanks for joining =)

MarieElizabeth said...

That barn really is holding on. I like the wood walls, they seem to be the most stable part as well.

Susan said...

Looks like a pioneer barn. Wonder if a good stiff wind would take it down? I hope not. Love it!

Paula said...

Awww.... bless it's heart! I think it's sad to see one falling in like that...

Southwest Arkie said...

I love old barns- especially the ones that are on their last legs- with half the roof off, and one side collapsing in- I always think of their uses- smoke house, corn crib, tractor house- hay storage...makes me think of my grandparents. nice shots!

Sallie said...

There is something so endearing about falling-down barns. I just want to give it that TLC it needs.

Leif Hagen said...

97 comments! A charming barn indeed!
Kind regards from a fellow "Barn Charm" participant at EAGAN daily photo

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

awww poor wittle barn. I wish they'd refurbish it. It would be awesome with all the character it has.

Ruta said...

Very cool...I don't think I have seen a log barn before!

mountain mama said...

Love the design. Does need some lovin' :)

pattisjarrett said...

It could use some lovin.'

Genie said...

Drooping and about to collapse....that is the way I felt at the end of the school day yesterday. Thank goodness it is over for a bit. What great shots. You really made us see that one up close and personal. genie

R.Ramakrishnan said...

Looks ramshackle & run down but very charming !
