Don Perkins has a passion for barns. A former carpenter and woodworker with a longtime interest in timber framing, Don now puts his knowledge to the printed page revealing the history and craft of our barns. A freelance writer since 2005, Don penned a series on local barns in 2007-8 for a Gray-New Gloucester weekly that garnered much interest, running for some 20 weeks. Another barn column appeared in the Advertiser Democrat in Norway for a year and a half. For seven years he wrote a weekly column on people and events for the Portland Press Herald.

A former member of the Timber Framers Guild, Don speaks at area historical societies and leads barn tours. At last, he is happy to announce the arrival of his long-awaited book, THE BARNS of MAINE: Our History, Our Stories.
