Old barns built by people of German heritage (such as the Amish) usually had a "ramp" made out of earth, going to the main door. Barns by people of Scandanavian heritage were often completely stone, with no ramps. Neat!
If I had my grandparents farm which is about 5 miles from me I'd paint the barns like this one. I love the creativity. It is so sunny.
