Used three large fans, salvaged from an old chicken barn, to create a sculpture marking the driveway. Structure is treated 4x6 timbers, clad in salvaged 1x6 fence boards, stained a barn red color. The sculpture is 12' wide by 6' tall, and topped with the metal ridge cap from the chicken barn. Fan blades spin in the wind.

  • We are absolutely in love with this sculpture! You did a beautiful job restoring the fans and giving them new life on the farm. Is this your property or were you commissioned to create the sculpture? We are so excited to see it!

    • Thank you! It is a friend's farm -- I'd been asking for 3 years to do something with the fans and after sketching out my idea she finally let me build it. Now she is thrilled and gets many compliments from people driving past.
