Field Hay Barn (Heinalato)



The field hay barn was a tall timber frame vertical pine board sided hay barn that rested on wooden posts. Flattened pole rafters held the rough sewn pine board roof and sawn shingles. The floor of the barn consisted of unpeeled poles. The building was approximately twenty feet by thirty feet in size and located approximately forty-five feet west of the cow barn. ('Askel' Means Step by Gene Meier)


There is presently no physical evidence of the barns existence, only a few worn photographs. Reconstruction back to the twenty's era has been contemplated. (Edwin 'Bill' Raisanen)
