|Our companions to the south side of the barn property. You can see their red roofed covered area in some of the machine shed demo pics.|
I have to tell you I was scared to death while CAT was up there trying to tie down the metal sheets as he had to first climb up the ladder into the hay loft of the barn, then pull the ladder up in and climb up to try and reach the metal roofing, all with wicked gusts of wind hitting him. He used pieces of wire through existing nail holes and tied the metal down. It's a shame to have to do this now only to have to disassemble it later. It's hard to show scale on the pictures but he was a good 25 feet in the air. Dangerous, but it had to be done. You can see the end pieces in this pic
We did manage to clear out the remaining manger and here are some pics of our empty barn. If all goes well, once reassembled on our property I will gently pressure wash the inside and then I'm going to paint it with a Lime mixture to help brighten it up and also to help with disease resistance down the road for our animals. We noticed some remnant lime paint on the upper logs so I imagine at one time it was all limed.
|On our property this small door will face the tree line and will have a lean-to built over it. It will be a covered area for the goats for when it's raining and also this door will be our main door for access to the barn.|
|This wall will face south on our property so we are going to add another window between the two upper windows to add more natural light.|
|Just another photo taken looking toward the small doorway.|
That's all the barn demo news for this week. We may head to our property today to give the dogs a run and clean up some of the trees CAT cut along our property line. Have a great week!
