Kisken recently updated me and said:

This round barn [above] was a Sears kit. For a while, Sears made barn kits both round and not round. This is the only round one that I have seen. I know of or have seen pictures of 3 non-round barns made from Sears kits. If you know of any please let me know. The barn is in Marysville Kansas and the owners are really fixing it up…. I had an exhibit in a museum in Edgerton, Wisconsin of my mail pouch barns. Edgerton used to grow tobacco and they have a Tobacco Heritage Days celebration every year. Will exhibit some of my barns at a tractor dealership in St Joseph, Wisconsin near LaCrosse. Sent about 75 more pictures to Finland. Have sent probably 500 pictures there so far. – cheers bob

Keep up the excellent work Bob! Wish I could go to Finland and see your pictures there!
