The older part is the divided, 12 by 19 ft. crib ( 17 logs to the plate). It had been used as two says. It has two plank doors; both with carved, wooden latches (sliding bar). A 12-ft, runway separates the two main parts of the barn. The left crib is slightly narrower and is of larger logs (14 to the plate); its one door is a plank door made with square naisl. These two parts are of saddle-notched, round logs. A huge, gable roof covers the two cribs and, in the rear, has three stalls, plus some other space devoted to animals. The front shed holds an excellent old house drawn hay rake.
This barn is remarkable in its black-white succession and in its hardware (wrought iron and carved wood).
