    Two hundred years ago it was common to see shakes or a thatched roof on a barn. Thatching was a woven mass of sticks and straw and shakes were usually made from cedar with a frow. On top of the roof sit two cupolas. These allow light and air to enter the barn and, if necessary, provide a lookout to the exterior.

This reminds me of Dorothy. Feels like there should be a tornado in the background and a girl in a blue checkered dress with her dog in the foreground.
