We're Gonna Have a Barn

The barn is in process!  We went to Guffey for the weekend to be there while the crew got started.  The posts were already up when we arrived Friday, and as the day progressed, more work was done.  We had planned to stay through to Monday or Tuesday, and see more of the work done, but with a storm brewing we felt it best to leave Sunday morning.  It was a short weekend (Friday morning through Sunday morning), but we had a nice time and got a lot done.  Friday we went for a walk, walked up Buck Drive and met some neighbors at the end of that street; Al, Dawn and their son.  We had a nice time chatting with them.  This photo was taken from somewhere along Buck Drive.  Look to the left near the bottom, and you'll see the barn posts in place.

On Saturday, Tim worked on putting up some shelving in the shed.  I went for a walk, scooped poop (a lot had been left on the last trip), dug up some soil samples, and various other odds and ends.  By the end of the day we were both pretty tired!

Our trip home Sunday took twice as long as it should.  When we got to Fairplay we realized we’d forgotten something important in the RV, so drove all the way back to get it.  That was two hours.  Just after Conifer, we got stuck behind some accidents on the icy roads and sat in traffic for 2 more hours.  Finally we made it back home.  It was a long day in the truck.  We felt badly that the horses were in the trailer that whole time, but we couldn’t really do anything about it and they were fine.  Soon we won’t have to do that drive back and forth!

Here's a barn shot that the builder sent us to show the current status. Tim and the architect are busily finalizing the plans for the lean-to (which will be to the left on this photo) and the workshop area (to be on the backside of the barn, or the far right). Tim will complete the lean-to and workshop himself, after the builders have completed the main portion of the barn.
