It was just a matter of time before this farm outbuilding collapsed.
I'm pretty sure that when we moved her 17 years ago there was a farmhouse on the property. It's long gone and I vaguely remember that it was a traditional white two-story. The outbuildings remained.
This was quite a large wooden structure and my guess was that they raised chickens in here.
When it was standing I resisted the urge to take close-up photos or even enter inside to photograph. These buildings can be incredibly dangerous and there can also be old wells and other booby traps waiting for an unsuspecting photographer. These photos were taken from a distance and it was freezing and starting to snow.
Anyway, it blew over one day. Not surprising. The above image is just half of the story. It's the far end of the collapse.
At one time this was a sturdy white clapboard building and it's a shame that it was allowed to degrade and become useless.
The old farm structures aren't the only things going the dust-to-dust route around here. We have two newer homes in our area that have been empty (due to the diving real estate market) for two years! Can you imagine how they are degrading, inch by inch?
