In June I was interviewed by Texas Home and Living Magazine.  The article was beautiful and showcased some of my favorite Famous Barns – take a look at the article here:

And a special thanks to our co-hostess – The Prairie by Rachel Ashwell was a perfect site and the Ranger Lounge is a great example of a perfect ranch compound’s heart … where breakfast is served, the loft where the queen sleeps, the soft, deep sofas and fireplace in the living room and the grilling and swilling porch out back.

Builders, Engineers, Financiers and appraisers guided our guests through the decision steps to the perfect barn …. that’s what Barns 101 is all about.

Look for Fall Barns 101 in Fredericksburg area — more coming soon.

In May of 2012 The Famous Barns Tour showcased the barns of Mormon Row, a few miles north of Jackson, Wyoming, in the Grand Teton National Park.  I’d worked with the Historical Society of Jackson Hole to provide us with a historical background of the area at their museum and then we headed to the barns of Mormon Row.  (The T.A. Moulton Barn is one of the most famous and was the last one sold to the National Park.)
You’ll recognize these as some of the most photographed in the nation.  With the Tetons at their backdoor, the light at sunrise is breath-taking.

I just learned that the Grand Teton National Park has planned a similar party this year at the park on July 20th.  They’re celebrating the barns’ 100 years and raising funds for continued restoration efforts.

If you can attend, your tour needs to include a stay at The Historic Wort Hotel, dinner at The Granary Restaurant at Spring Creek Ranch and a drink at both the Silver Dollar Bar and the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar!
