Snug and Awaiting Reassembly

The Barn in Storage

The barn’s ancient bones await future life as our gallery and craft center, marked for reassembly and stored in donated space in an old chicken barn.

The Barn Goes into StorageJonno’s Place Barn Flintstone-Style Moving Day:

Weekend before last we moved our barn into an old chicken house to keep it dry for the winter, as we continue to plan for its final move to our Jonno’s Place site in Belfast Maine.

Some of these beams are over 40 feet long and very heavy. It was a monumental task, planned and overseen by our volunteer builder Mike. We had a few surprises along the way, including a snake, porcupine poop, a flat tire, a few minor injuries, and a mysterious mold which looked remarkably like molten marshmallow. Our barn is now all safely tucked in for winter. Thank you to everyone who made our move such a success.

In the door of the barnBelfast area resident Ned Lightner , producer of Insight Productions, visited us at the site of the donated barn  in Union, Maine, which we dismantled and stored for the day The Barn Project becomes a reality.  This old structure will become the bones for our new community center and gallery in Belfast. You can view Ned’s video interview with Jonno’s Place founder Linda Lee on Belfast Community Media’s Vimeo channel here.

Donated Barm in Hope, Maine

Old Barn InteriorA generous donor has given Jonno’s Place a venerable post and beam barn. We will disassemble it, mark the pieces, and move it to our site in Belfast. The old barn will see new life as the community center and arts and crafts center, the first phase in the development of Jonno’s Place.
