Old Barns
I will be posting photos of old barns that I took in different areas up in Quebec, Canada.

All the photos were taken from a moving vehicle.

Re: Old Barns
This is one of the things i love about this part of canada ...Lots of these old barns .
Funny thing is the "Old timers" on small farms let them fall down but big 4000acre+ farms have the shiny new yard but keep the old hip-roof in perfect condition ,Sometimes as a workshop .
You would think the "Homesteaders" would be more for keeping the "Heritage" alive :-\

Re: Old Barns
It's even nicer to take a look inside, sometimes you find some nice things in there. I've found in an old shed in Canada some old Deere's. A shame they're gone now :-(

Re: Old Barns
Great photos! You guys are right. It is really neat to go inside the barns. Just to see how they were set up and how they functioned internally gives a whole new appreciation of the barn.
As to why old-timers don't keep up their barns, it costs a ton to maintain a large old structure like that. Just a roof can run $50,000 or more. And if nothing's been done to the barn for a long time there probably are large beams that have to be replaced and other structural issues. Sadly, cost is probably the main factor in old-timers not keeping them up.
Interestingly, in the '70's when farmers were flush with cash (and these barns were still given some use) you saw a lot of them being well maintained with new siding, paint, etc.

Wonderful pictures! Thanks for taking them and sharing them.

Re: Old Barns
Thank you guys.

I agree it's nice to see how nicely some of those old barns are preserved.

Charles I agree sometimes it’s just less expensive to build new instead of preserving the old barn. It was a pleasure the share the photos. If you have any, please share them with us.

jdeere the first photo is my preferred as well.
