The Meaning of Patience

two thou-sand nine english barn,

….board and batten side,
old and new bring character,
patience works in me

The building itself looks like Rustic Woodart.

Thanks Frank. A nice job on the recreation. The windows make it look airy and bright. I assume that you will be going for a red look on the windows on the left.

Nice Haiku, thank you frank.
At the school where I learnt “Woodcarving of Hans Kantor studio” we said all the time that to learn Woodcarving is first of all, to learn “Patience”

Beautiful old barn Frank. I think of the farmers past that have used it to feed their families, and thank God there are people like you to repair and keep it from falling down. They are such a part of our history. I see so many old barns here in Michigan just collapsing due to disrepair and it really makes me sad. I thank God my Uncle, who recently past away, restored my grandfathers old barn. It is a Centennial Farm so it should be ok for a few years ahead. I also like your Haiku on Patience. Practicing patience is something I struggle with every day of my life. But to become a good soul or a good woodworker, patience indeed is a must. God Bless Old Friend.
