Prairie Inspiration

After many visits here, my parents found inspiration in the rather odd looking grain elevators dotted around rural Saskatchewan. Just like this one:


We even came across one on the move, when researching them online:

Mawer – Moose Jaw Saskatchewan Grain Elevator Move:

(That has to be one  of my favourite ever Youtube clips!)

So, Dad being Dad, they are now trying to build one – an 18ft one, to be precise – in their garden. Here is their progress so far.


We may not have majestic mountains or panoramic views or follies or medieval architecture, but we have something inspirational, after all!

  1. Its going to have staircase inside, and hopefully, a bridge leading from the top across to the front lawn. So its a way of getting from the bottom of the garden to the top (not something you might experience in Saskatchewan!)
