I love the old barns around here (everywhere). It always kills me a little inside when someone new moves in and they burn or tear down one of these beauties. Worse than that, is the people who paint them an odd colour to match their house. It’s called Barn Red for a reason.
The specific colour is actually more expensive than other shades and these things are huge so it’s not an inexpensive venture, painting one of these, but I don’t know why you ever would.
