View of pole building. Poles are made of Eastern Red Cedar, which has fragrant, brownish-red heartwood naturally resistant to rot. Board and batten siding is locally grown, rough-sawn, yellow pine. Birdhouse gourds (Mexican Bottle Gourds) are growing in the foreground. There's an old Ford 8N tractor parked in the shed. The drive-through design accommodates easy access to the mining road over which the shed is built.

The fish skeleton above the tractor shed is fashioned after the logo used by the Swiss Mariner's Fife and Drum Corps, Basel, Switzerland.
