#246 Buck's Harbor Barn
I've loved barns for as long as I can remember. It may have to do with the simplicity of the building's lines, or with the animals they house. Maybe it's the way of life they represent. To this day, there aren't too many barns I can walk or drive by without thinking about how they might translate in to a house.
We passed this pretty little thing on a walk up through the village center in Buck's Harbor on a beautiful summer afternoon last summer. Though it certainly would make someone a fine home, I've witnessed how unbridled zoning can destroy a neighborhood on Munjoy Hill. I've now decided that there ought to be a law passed that mandates all barns, and the farms they're a part of, continue to be a home for farmers and vegetables and fruits and cows and horses and chickens and pigs and donkeys and tractors forever.
