Barn’s a raisin’

So… the weekend we’ve all been waiting for! Barn raising!!! As you know the pieces have all been being built but we needed more daylight than the evenings of the present season gives us to put it all together. 🙂

So today I channeled my inner He-man… or Hulk or whatever and helped move the pieces into position and hold em’ steady while Stu worked the drill!

Here’s one side wall up.

Next we put up the center wall that will separate the barn halves. It’s heavy!

Then the other side wall up! Ella kept watch over our progress and played with a box of “baby” screws safely out of the way, though she did sneak in for this photo. 🙂

Next the back of the barn. This was heavy too! My inner Hulk needs to work out more!

Then we put in the 16′ boards for the shelving.

Then popped on the front. It’s that easy! 😉

Isn’t it pretty?

Stu did more work after this, but I had to run to town to pick up the roofing AND insulation! Yep, only the best for our little goaties. 😉 This barn is going to be amazing!! And I’ll show you photos of the rafters and roofing later too! Hopefully it’ll be in working order by Monday!

Yay!!
