We are really beginning to see the end of the tunnel on the barn project! It is taking all our extra time, and energy, so we will be glad to see the end of it.
Once that is in place I will work on the roosts, then the door, and we can call that room finished. We will of course have to put up the fence but that isn't difficult or time consuming just pound in the t-posts and stretch and fasten the fencing.
The feed room just needs to have the door hung, and we can bring in the feed. Husband is setting the final 4 posts in for the last bits of wall and gates. I had planned to do some 7 ft. gates, to save on digging post holes and cement, but I think that it will be better to have a 4 ft wall and a 3 ft gate instead. It will just be sturdier.
It looks like tomorrow we will be able to finish up most of those jobs, and this next week I may be able to put up the fences and start moving in the critters. That will really be great!
In the future, when we have recovered, I plan to put a loft above the ground floor for hay storage. I will only have about 3 ft of head room so I can't make it a solid floor the whole length, but I can have a shelf all the way around above the animal pens and leave a 3 ft space in the middle so that I can access the shelf with a ladder.
I will update tomorrow evening, Until then, Happy Weaving, Tina
