An Indiana farm

On a recent drive we came across this farm...I liked the whole view of it. Wouldn't you like to be sitting there at the picnic tables?
And here is another little house with that huge front overhang in front. I have wondered was this at one time the smokehouse or was it a summer kitchen. I really have no idea what it was used for...but it reminded me of the little house I showed here.
Even though the fence could have used some TLC, the barn was well taken care of. It is metal siding, and sometimes I don't like that but in this case the barn still had a lot of character.

Gosh, I have never heard of a barn with metal siding, how did you find out? But it sure is a big difference from the other pictures! Strange the barn is in such good shape and the fence is falling down!

I really like that last photo. That falling down fence adds charm and character - the old and the new.

the other house you showed us with that overhanging roof, was a first and here you found a second one. I am thinking summer kitchen since it has the pump. I would love to see all these old barns and buildings. the only ones we have here are in historic parks.

That first house looks very "homey" and a great place for a picnic. The barn is stylish with the interesting roof line. Nice post.

I'm not keen on metal siding either but this looks good!
