  • For Chatfield’s Terry Reps, creating  miniature barns is a real passion

    “I love barns and farming.  There’s generally not two barns alike,” said rural Chatfield resident Reps, whose fascination with barns is longstanding and somewhat nostalgic. “They might be the same style, but every one is different. The barn was the hub of the farm. It housed livestock, feed and you, because it would be nice to be inside in the wintertime. But once the livestock and people are gone, the life is gone out of the barns, and they start deteriorating fast. When I was a kid, I would go into old barns, timber-framed ones, and I liked to see how the joints and braces worked, how they got them up so high. That was neat. It was a community effort, not just a couple of guys.”
