Cherie's Illinois Barn
SSOBB Member Cherie Moore
shared this Illinois pole barn
during the SSOBB blog hop last year.
CLICK HERE to read her post about its construction.
When I taught at The Folk School earlier this year,
Cherie sent me her pole barn block
so I could share it with my students.
Of course, I took a few detail photos
while it was in my studio.
Cherie is known for her wonderful use of thrifted shirtings
and this barn is a terrific example of her work.
I especially like the way she added the top on her silo.
If you ever wonder whether small details make a difference,
just look at the impact of that narrow inserted strip above her barn door
and the very narrow inserted strip along the barn's roof lines.
The answer is YES - little details DO make a big difference.
