Is this a barn? a shed? a garage? And is that hook still in use? So many questions surround this structure with an old door on top and a modern door on bottom. An example of an small urban barn from early 20th century Oakville that was possibly used to house a horse and carriage and maybe a goat or some chickens, with a hayloft up top.

  1. It’s a cute little barn!

  2. interesting mix of old/new! cool find!

  3. Very sweet barn and it seems to have been functional with the loft and pulley. The colors in your shot are soothing.

  4. So neat…so clean…so charming!

  5. I love it! It’s so charming.

  6. I would like to have that sitting in my back yard!

  7. I think you may be right… when the page 1st opened I wasn’t sure about it being a barn, but now that you mention the upper door & a horse & buggy, I’m thinking that could very well be the case. Whatever they use it for, it’s in really good shape… & very charming! =)

    Thank you so much for continuing to join Barn Charm each week & here’s to another year =)

  8. I’m w/ Donna about the hook & pulley idea… looks like it, anyway.

  9. Whatever it’s used for, I like it!

  10. I think the beam sticking out with the pulley adds a nice touch.

  11. Awesome barn looks fancy.

  12. I think it’s an old barn that’s been recycled for modern use.

  13. It’s adorable — but that is one mighty long step down if they come out that top door

  14. Whatever the story, it’s a fine contribution to Monday Doorways.

  15. Wow! That’s VERY ambiguous – it immediately catches the eye, maybe because the brain immediately gets busy just trying to work out what it is??!!
