Another barn

Here's a picture of the back of the barn on the family farm. There aren't any animals in the barn now, but I remember when there were calves in the stalls when my uncle was still raising beef cattle. And I have vague memories of my grandfather milking the one dairy cow.

I also remember my grandfather re-roofing the barn, around 1976, I think. He cut down the cedar tree, hauled out the logs, split the cedar shakes, and then nailed the shakes onto the barn roof. I wonder how long that DIY "barn improvement" project took?
