I had an additional week off after this years county fair that I used to finish up a few dangling projects.  The loft was originally planned to be divided so Theresa could have a studio for painting.  After we finished the shell of the building and started on insulating the south wall, discussions turned to leaving the loft open.  The north wall got the same treatment as the south,  insulated and sided.  Busting up the openness of the loft, even with a wall of recycled french doors and dormers would have really been a mistake.  We’re happy that there was absolutely no argument on the decision.



I was gifted a pair of sign lights that matched the other exterior lighting but wasn’t sure where, or if,  I was going to be able to use them.  When I set up the ladder to install the track for the loft doors I was able to put a tape on the subject and realized a perfect spot for the light.  I moved the diamond LX sign down about eight inches allowing the fixture the perfect purchase.


Everything is bolted up for the door trolleys.  Now I’ll just have to get the doors started.  The wood should be sufficiently dry now to complete the assembly of the doors.

    I can’t think of any more superlatives to use for describing your barn. How about a two thumbs up!

      Thanks Ed! You’ll need to plan on coming down for our October hootenanny.
