You are invited to a barn raising

 to be held on July 16th 
at 71944 Fisher Rd Bruce Township MI 
from 9:00 am till 5:00 pm.

 

This 20’ x 20’ timber frame buiding was originally a granary that was donated to the Michigan Barn Preservation Network who disassembled it last fall. Lori and Tom Brubaker purchased the frame in late fall of 2015. 

 

The Brubakers had moved a mid 19th century barn to their property in 2010 and have adapted it to an “event barn”.The new/old granary will be adapted to become an entry way & gathering place for the event barn.

 

Your participation will be either as a worker or spectator
Workers will be required to have gloves, long pants, work shoes, safety glasses.
Spectators will need a comfortable chair and umbrella.

 

Cost for the day is $40 for non members (includes a one year membership in MBPN). For members the cost is $10. Lunch will be provided by the Brubakers.

 

Registration is limited and required for both spectators and workers before Wednesday July 13th by calling Steve Stier at 517-648-2933
