Barn Photography

printbarn3For the last month or so, I’ve been taking images of a 150- to 175-year-old Vermont barn that was disassembled in St. Johnsbury and is being rebuilt in a small town south of Burlington.

It is majestic in its size…about 40 by 120; magnificent in its workmanship and a marvel that barnwright Peter Demick can take something like this apart and put it back together.

In the image at left, you’ll see a pine sprig at the top of the last peak rafter. Demick said this is a long-standing tradition and symbolizes new life from the sprig’s sap entering and revitalizing the old building.

More images to come.
