Nice newly-built barn in Sonoma County

Here they used an old tried-and-true design, with recycled corrugated steel roofing, and it’s a great effect. (Another place this kind of rusty roofing has been used effectively is The House of Blues, on Sunset Blvd, in L.A.). This barn fits in nicely. Farmer architecture. (If a real architect designed this building, hats off to him for something so straight-forward and non-egomaniacal.)
