This book is as well an instructionbook with a lot of photo's about building an authentic Dutch four pole haybarn with thatched movable roof as also a beautifull picture and coffeetable book about an old Dutch hamlet Beerze along an old Dutch river "de Overijsselse Vecht" with old farms with thatched roofs and planked walls with straw strengthed .
Dutch expatriates like it because it remembers as nothing else to their home....
Vernacular "people" abroad and members of vernacular associations and institutions use it as their Bible.
My obsession, which I share with others, is to save the old Dutch Haybarn: a thing with poles and a movable thatched roof. It is used for the preservation of hay and corn during the winter. My other obsession is fotography. In this book I combine both hobbies.
