Hay Barn (Heinalato)




Connected to the north end of the cattle barn is the seventeen foot by twenty-one foot round pole log barn featuring saddle notch corner notching. Split balsam poles nailed to ten sets of rafters act as sheathing for the long thin hand split cedar shingles. Pine poles fitted on log joists form a floor in the barn allowing the air to circulate throughout the hay. ('Askel' Means Step by Gene Meier)
