« Part 4: Life interrupts Part 5 of Workshop Do Over series Part 6: Outside is done!! Inside is done except for floor. »

Haven’t been on for awhile because we have been working both in and outside the barn. I wanted to come on and post some pics so you won’t think we have given up. Click below to see a slide show of before and after so far. This week we will finish the South side of the barn and I will add that pic to this post. The barn was built in 1860. I will set up a slide show so you can see what we did on the inside to preserve the building so that it could be returned to exactly what it was. Not sure why but just in case years from now someone wants to.

cli ck here: to see the slide show.

Very nice shop. Looks big and roomy. The before and after are really great restores. Fixed it up, made some nice changes but kept the flavor of the thing. Nice job!

You certainly have my envy. Great restoration job. Look forward to what you do with the interior.

It’s looking real good.
