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!
The barn that will hold 4 horses, cats, dogs and possibly some tea-cup pigs. On the other side will hold our boat, 4 wheelers, ski-dos, sea-dos, and everything else that is for the outdoors. We'll host barn parties up in the top half of the barn and also have a spare bedroom.. The bathroom and shower will be in the downstairs to wash-up before you head back into the house.
