Old Dutch shed / Старый голландский сарай


Walking in the countryside near Lonneker, The Netherlands, I spotted this old shed. From its construction I can tell it's old, but what I can't tell is why it wasn't removed. Somebody even went through the trouble of making a fence around it. Anyway, I love these casual remnants of past times:

You can tell from the photo how it was built: an oak beam structure, the open areas filled with woven willow withies. These would have been sealed with loam, but that hasn't survived.

A photo from the side:

I have no idea what this shed was once used for, but I do like looking at such things and ponder.
