After Party

After we cleaned up from the party I figured it would be about the only time in the foreseeable future that the barn would be clean and ready for its close up.IMG_6211

The coop still lacks a door, hardware cloth on the windows and the outside run.  Other than that it’s chicken ready.

The shops drywall has a primer on it.  That’s about as far as that will go.  I still need to trim out the windows and then I’ll be ready to move the pegboard panels and my workbench from the garage.

The stain glass panel that my sister gave us a couple of years ago has found its final resting place.  I’m not moving it again, unless it is in a sale.

One of our friends brought out some sign lights that were left unused from a commercial project.  They had been sitting in his warehouse for a year.  I think I’m going to swap out these with the two canopies that I installed on the front of the barn.  At the very least I’ll set one and take a look to see if they would look better.  I love getting free stuff!

    Love your barn, I too wished I had one like that. It looks like it was all reclaimed lumber, or even an old barn that you put up on your place.

    Like you, I am also retiring from railroading in just over two years and looking forward to farming, I am so looking forward to that.

      Thanks Gordon. I don’t care to wish my life away, but it would be nice to have just a couple of years left instead of nine.

    Wow Woody, you sure did follow through on your plans! I’m sure your family and friends feel proud of you. You have built a thing of beauty that will be around for generations to come, not many of us can claim that.

      Thank you so much Phoebe. Your too kind. Our family and friends built this with us. That is what makes it so cool for me. I can look at hammer marks on the loft floor boards and I know that my daughter or one of our nieces or grandsons had been driving the nail. If a building can store memories, this one is already full.
