Rooster, I am interested in the round barn you mentioned. There is a great round barn where I do my blacksmithing. This one is timber frame with masonry walls.

Some info on the round barn can be found on the Schuster farm site.

Besides the new roof Rooster put on, there is also a cupola on top now.

Not only does the barn have a cupola, it now has a Spire/lighning rod. Craig asked me to help him create this spire.  He did all the "cyferin" and built a simple but effective jig.  I supplied a 12' long 11" diam. cedar utility pole which I sawed in half.  Craig then routed out the center, installed the rod then glued it back together.  We then put it on the jig then onto my Woodmizer and milled 20 sides to it.  Next, we tilted the spire and tapered it down to 2".  Now I know what you're thinkin, "where's the pictures"?.  Well I forgot my camera.  Craig's girlfriend did take some with the cell phone, so hopefully he will email them so we can get them posted.

Bringing this topic up front...has some of the pics of the barn raising last summer in WI.

Seems to me that they have to come apart the same way they go together, with gin poles, etc.
