It was a modern framed structure with weatherboarding, as well as interior paneling imported from Waynesville. The shingled gables reflected the nationally-popular Eastlake style of the day.

    1. Thanks Adam, I enjoy barns too. There are still a few around here, but they aren’t seen like they are in Tennessee, and and on throughout the Midwest.

  1. Another lovely sequence of serene pictures. So much atmosphere and ambience in those pictures. You have really captured the spirit of the place. My favourite is the Caldwell’s home room, the monochromatic tones feels right for that historic environment – and brings richness and depth to the picture.

    1. Thank you so much Otto. I had my doubts about that room because I didn’t have my tripod. I was real pleased with the outcome.

  2. Very nice images, Phillip. Nice story too. 😉
    That first shot looks like it belongs on a calendar, so serene and peaceful-like. Good stuff, man.

    1. Thanks Edith. I was really amazed how the third one turned out. Its a three image HDR. I’m looking forward to trying it again.
