Nominate Your Favorite Barn! Friends of Minnesota Barns Contest!

By
Real Estate Agent with Sabinske & Associates, Inc. (Albertville, St. Michael)

I love this idea.  Minnesota Firth Annual “Barn of the Year Contest” is seekingnominations from barn owners to help select this year’s winning barn. 

 

I had never heard of this before but, all nominated barns must be at least 50 years old….driver’s license or photo ID will be accepted along with place of residence. 

 

The barns will “compete” in one of six categories:  Best agricultural adaptive reuse; Best non-agricultural adaptive reuse; Best barn conversion to living quarters. Most dramatic rescue; Most faithful restoration and Most unique barn.  

The contest runs from now through August 21, 2012.  Application forms are available at the Friends of Minnesota Barns website www.friendsofminnesotabarns.org  Only electronic applications are accepted.  But you can call John Kuester at 641-502-8018 (cell) with questions.

Suzanne, No kidding, a barn contest? I am sure there are some proud barn owners that are chomping at the bit to show what a great barn they have. It must be a man thing.

I am going to contact the Friends of Minnesota Barns organization and ask if I can post some of the pictures from each category.  I think just seeing some of these would be so much fun!

You know I love barns,   I have built quite a few birdhouse replicas of people's barns from around here.  So, when you get the photos, I will be watching to see if there is something worth replicating.  Thanks for the heads up!

I have been asked to sell a barn conversion, but they are a tough sell in any economy.  And during the last few years, even tougher.

What a great contest. I would love to be a judge in this one. The midwest has some pretty neat old barns. I know I grew up in Iowa and Illinois.
