County Road G Antiques Barn



Welcome back to Egg Harbor, Wisconsin, the place to be on this Easter Sunday.  The Easter bunny has left us quite a treat today, in the form of this popular gallery and events barn.  The property also includes a house built in 1890.  Let's take a little stroll and imagine the possibilities.

The barn is picturesque, but isn't exactly weather-tight, as you'll see:


With a new landscape plan and some paint and structural work, the barn could resemble this:

There currently is a section of the barn devoted for events:


Let's make those events a little more eventful, like this:

Or maybe like this:

Now let's have some fun with the antique gallery, and change this utilitarian farm display:


...to a more romanticized version of farm life:


Here's another gallery before shot:


...and an Easter-apropos, just plain pretty after idea:


This courtyard area between the house and barn is already pretty charming:


...but a little more store merchandising might not hurt:

I know you're as curious as I am to take a peek at the house:


Worth it, huh?

And simply because this is one of my favorite parts of any post, here is its Waterlogue version:


Have a wonderful week, friends!

  2. What a great find. Wisconsin might be a little chilly in the winter months but this property looks like it could be cozy and comfy in any weather. The house is certainly my favorite structure on the grounds.

    1. I agree, Karen, the house is very pretty. Now I'm considering doing a post on the inside, too. How lucky was I that Egg Harbor's only current listing is so interesting?

    1. Hi Kristy, There's just something about the airiness of the white against the weathered wood, isn't there? Wouldn't it be fun to build a whole store theme around that look? Hope you're having a quiet week, in preparation for all of your busy weeks coming up soon!

  7. Wow! I love your ideas for the barn and that courtyard is just heavenly. The house is so charming. Oh yes, yes, yes... I would love to see your ideas for the inside of that pretty house... :)

    1. Good morning, Dee! I think you're right- now I've got to make the house suit the barn- seems like it should be the other way around. :)
