- the cupola (turret? –not sure of the terminology) is perfect in form, if not sheathing. Now there’s some carpentry; I’d love to see how it’s framed inside. There are few carpenters around these days with these skills.
- the awkward addition pasted on to the original gable roof (follow the green shingles). Imagine this building in its original form. Ah, me.
When I see barns, I always look for any sagging in the eaves. Barns that have been neglected and are falling apart often have straight eaves, meaning the foundation was sound.
