                             Machine Shed (Liiteri)

The lean-to building on the back of the hay barn was built to provide storage for the machines and tools used in the production of hay, grain, and vegetables. These were mostly simple implements, horse and human powered.

 

 

Connected to the west side of the hay barn is a timber and pole frame machine shed. A  layer of vertical pine boards form the siding for this add-on storage area, which measures fifteen feet by twenty-one feet. Hand split cedar shingles nailed to rough sawn pine boards act as the roofing material.
