The Barn Restoration is Complete!

After more than five months, restoration of the c.1784 Enos Kellogg barn is complete.

I'll do a more detailed involved post later on, but here are a few photos of the finished structure, including some interiors from Thanksgiving Day, when we officially put the barn back into use with dinner for 35 inside.






Happily, the barn crew all signed their names on gable-end rafters, for someone to discover in another century or so.

  2. Thanks, Emily! I've been enjoying watching your restoration progress. Looks like it's really starting to come together. My parents live in northern Baltimore County (Upperco) and there are a couple of log cabins on the farms surrounding them that remind me so much of your place. Keep up the good work!
