Inspiration was a photo of my Dad’s corn crib in Iowa, taken while we were helping him move some iron. I asked him why the board was nailed across the front and he said there had been a cow who kept jumping over the iron gate. The panel fence attached to the board is just barely visible.

One of my favorite details is the silver fabric on the bins.
