I Need a New Roof!

Along Route 87 toward Comfort we ran across this shed that could definitely use a new roof.



And nearby, there was another building, probably used as a machine shed at one time.



Don't you wonder what stories these have to tell and why they have been abandoned?  Linking today with Rubbish by Roan for Rubbish Tuesday (just a day late).

Have a great Hump Day!

Like maybe it had seen a storm or two here recently.

You are not wrong, sure does need a new roof..

Cynthia said...

Yes, I wonder that, too. I always wish old abandoned buildings could talk.

TexWisGirl said...

that roof had some wind-ripping, for sure!

William Kendall said...

They could surely use some work!

Hi, Linda Kay!

We have several of those worn out buildings in our area. Someone once told me that as long as the buildings are still standing they can be used for tax purposes. UGH...Reminds me, a new tax season will soon be upon us. Oh well...


Merry Christmas!!

Yes, I always wonder that about abandoned buildings. There's an abandoned old farmhouse down the road a bit and I can't look at it without wondering the rest of the story.

For some reason I saw the second photo first, the roof looked OK to me. Well the first one does need a little loving. Tom The Backroads Traveller

If the building falls down the insurance company will build a new one.

Definitely it has experienced some strong winds!

Gosia k said...

needs a new owner and renovation

Amy at love made my home said...

Gosh that first one definitely needs some attention doesn't it! xx

Amy Burzese said...

Yes, I do wonder. And i hate seeing them that way too.

wonderful to watch your blog.

The potential history of these buildings, if only they could talk. I always wonder. Great shots!

Rory Bore said...

older buildings have such character and interesting historical appeal. if the walls could talk. the world is so obsessed with the fresh and new, but I see beauty here too.

Linda said...

Wow, it certainly does need a new roof!

Far Side of Fifty said...

We always wonder too...who lived there and what was their story...everyone has one:)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I do wonder, Linda! I also feel compelled to take photos of abandoned barns and farms....a sad sight!

Saucy Kodz said...

Great curiosity does overcome me when I pass such a place. If its not fenced off or private, we like to explore. In one olde abandoned barn we found a feed bag with the initial L on it. My first initial - I still have it. I always am curious to know the history.

Hilary said...

wonderful shots!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Wow...I like this very much. Such charm...and pretty country.

It's been a long time since we've been to Comfort, TX. We stopped at the German memorial the last time we were there.

Anvilcloud said...

Don't you love finding structures like this?

Hannah said...

Old weathered barn wood is supposed to make nice wall paneling, it has a lot of character.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

I always wonder about old barns I see and hope that someone will take an interest in them and preserve them. If they're allowed to disintegrate, there won't be more of them. No one builds barns in the old way these days.

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

I do wonder when I see thee buildings. The owners are not around or? Sometimes the buildings are falling down. I hope you are doing well with this busy season.

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Linda; Oh yes, the some part of the roof had blown off. Kind of ironic that the color of the old barn (or building) machines the beautiful scenery behind it, doesn't it:-)

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

John's Island said...

Hi Linda Kay, Nice pictures, and, yes, interesting! I do wonder what the story is on that place. Also, in that second photo ... what a neat coincidence --> some of the trees on the hillside behind are just about the same rust color as the roof (what's left of it) of the building. Cool! John

carol l mckenna said...

Great photos and lots of 'tales in that old building I am sure!

artmusedog and carol
Happy Weekend to you

Anita said...

Indeed Linda!
Agree with you. Every place & building has its own story...
Most of us don't even think of the story.
It takes a writer or one with a sensitive heart or imaginative mind to think/understand :)

Brenda Kay Ledford said...

These photos are very interesting. I would like to know the story behind these building not have roofs. What an awesome posting!

bj said...

it took a little wind, I'd say..

Jim said...

Certainly is in need of a new roof.

Gerald (SK14) said...

we see a lot of these too on our travels

kitty said...

Yes indeed, it sure does need a new roof!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

it really bothers me to see buildings in such disrepair. all that lovely wood...flooring, siding, furniture... it could be used for so many things and not just left to rot.

SuperLux said...

I'm one of those quirky individuals who look at houses when I travel and wonder what story or secrets that house holds. :D

Thanks for sharing this story. Hopping up to the link. :)

Gail said...

I've seen many places that I wish could tell me their story.

Great pictures.

Roan said...

Poor roof sure is need of repair. Very nice find!

Mage said...

Colorado? That sure looks familiar.

Rebecca said...

Oh yes, I always wonder what the stories are behind these buildings. And I am always sad to see them go.

Wandering Wren said...

Hoping for a lottery win maybe?! I too would love to know the tales these buildings could tell!

Rose said...

My thoughts exactly on wondering what tales these places could tell. They always pull at my heart!

eileeninmd said...

I'd say that first one really needs some loving care.. Great finds, have a happy weekend!
