The Canadian prairies have a tremendous history. It is where our ancestors settled, put down roots and began a new life. It was a challenging time and a harsh environment, with little infrastructure established to support the new frontier. It was up to those first settlers to construct the agrarian society that would serve their families and future generations. On the farm, storage facilities and shelter were required for people, livestock, equipment and crop yields. Materials used for these buildings were a reflection of era, technology, style, available resources, and functional requirement. Time, physical use and the elements place stress and wear on these materials, in a mighty attempt to break down and destroy. When the utility function diminishes, material is often rendered useless. In many cases however, a beauty and character are created and cannot be replicated. The wear and stress tells a story about years of service in a past life. Reclamation of these materials gives the opportunity to create new life with a new function.
