Projects

We finished staining the outside of the barn. Well, all but a tiny bit of trim around a few of the windows on the main doors. I might get to finish that this morning. The inside still needs to be finished a coat of clear wood protector, but it will have to wait until next spring. It wasn’t our plan to move the horses over to this side of the property until … well, we didn’t really have a time frame in mind. But we’ve been talking about making that a reality much sooner as a result of  Dharla’s recent dog and fence incident. In order to make that happen we have to do a bunch of clearing on the opposite side of the new barn and get more fence installed. What was once a fairly easy project some twenty years ago now seems a bit daunting. We’re not spring chickens anymore and the thought of all that hard labor is a little sobering. In addition, the barn will need electricity and water, which means there’s  lots to think about this winter while we’re stuck inside doing nothing.

  1. OH man!! I am SO envious of your barn! It is beautiful and the setting is stunning. I wish I could pop over and help you out! My little tiny barn doesn’t compare. As a matter of fact, my draft wouldn’t even fit in it! lol. I look forward to more photos of your barn through the winter!

  2. That structure nestled between the trees does a great job of conveying a sense of stability and well-being, nice job Cheryl.
