New Red Roof

This past winter I was driving along a country road in central Saskatchewan when I glimpsed this big red barn out of the corner of my eye.  I slid to a stop on the icy road and reversed my course for a few photos.

A young farmer on a snowmobile rode out to the end of the driveway to greet me.  We talked for a few minutes and he said that he had just had the roof on the barn replaced and that refinishing the siding was next on his "to do" list.  It was good to hear that "knocking it down" hadn't been an option.

The workmanship on the roof is second to none...nice to see there are still good craftsmen out there.
