  • This class will begin with a lecture on old barns in Maine and then move from barn to barn each week, giving each participant an opportunity to learn about their own old building and share this knowledge with classmates. Topics discussed will include: How old is my barn and what was it used for? What can I do with my old barn? What repairs will make it safe? Can I repair it at a reasonable cost? The class will end with a tour of the instructor’s barns and a potluck supper. The length of the class will depend on the number of participants.
