and Why Barns are Red in the First Place
Barns were never intended to have a signature red color. They were painted red out of necessity at the time. A combination of rust and linseed oil resulted in a burnt-orange color that served as a cheap solution to protect the structure from deterioration. Today, the color of barns can vary as well as their purpose. Barns have been remodeled to be event spaces, art galleries, homes and other spaces, nonetheless some have remained to be agricultural structures. Barns now have no more reason to be red but for its classic and elegant look. Check out these red barns and tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!
