A picture-perfect blue sky provided the backdrop for a recent tour of the BARN building site. Visitors were able to walk in and around a taped outline of the building while Johnpaul shared a clear sense of the design he has created for the future home of BARN.  He talked about bringing in an abundance of natural light, and creating a place where artisans from many different disciplines can spark off each other. And he spoke of the importance of the BARN vision to the island that has been his home since 1967. “It’s the right time for BARN on Bainbridge,” he said.

The Kitchen Arts group provided a preview of what will someday come out of BARN’s commercial kitchen. Cookies and lemonade made the afternoon that much sweeter.
