The Barn

Check out the work going on at the barn. A steel roof is wonderful but the angle of this roof has the water landing so close to the foundation..some work was needed. Well the equipment was enough to entertain the This is a stack wall barn. You can see from the pictures what an intereting building it is. It is concrete(cement) and cedar poles. Part of the wall was left open to show how it was made. The rest is all covered up with parging..not sure of the spelling of that one. Anyway the barn is getting older and some work has to be done. This is only the start of the work that will be happening over the next 6 months. I am more excited about the barn work than I would be over the house being worked Yes I know I am just a tad Hay going in the barn is also one of my thrill moments..odd I know but I love to see a barn full of hay and ready for the winter. Anyway here are some pictures of the work being started.

This morning when I let the little ones out .. oh my what is They were so funny. After prancing around they finally wandered out to pasture..but only after they checked EVERYTHING

Here is a close up of the Stack Wall. Interesting isn't it.

Off to the barn again..enjoy the day!!
