Record Barn.

Record Barn

It may be hard to dance to, but it has a good beat (musically speaking). It's a 15 x 40-foot barn covered in 33.3 rpm phonograph records. Roof, sides, doors, all covered in vinyl. 3,600 records of all musical genres. The round records were cut into squares and screwed onto the barn, covering all visible surfaces. The south-facing records have all warped, so it's been here awhile. Johnny Mathis, anyone?
