Mr. or Ms. Miner,
That is so interesting. I am in the process of researching these barns because I may have one (45x50) moved to my property in Mass. If you have any other details you can share with me I'd appreciate it. That is so interesting about the H-frame. Personal advice/Books/Articles

Thank you - Kristin
