« Part 1: Barn Workshop The Beginnings Part 2 of Pole Barn Workshop Remodel series no next part

So I knew that I would be traveling for work these next two weeks and would be out of town but my Saturday was wide open so I thought I would start to pull some of the junk/trash out of the barn and add it burn pile. Some of the things that I have found are just mind boggling. So far I have taken 3 truck loads of trash out of the barn but htat just barely scratches the surface.

The first load had 12 doors and part of the chick coop. None were salvageable since they all had water damage on them.

There was also 4 headboards, 2 bags of set of concrete mix and masses of scrap lumber.

The best thing I found so far have been these floor tiles. 4 whole boxes in total. I just wish they were not so brittle and could be reused since they are so ugly they are cool.

So the project has begun and I am already making quicker progress than expected. I know that I will be basically at a stand still since once I get home from work we will be beginning silage chopping and then harvest. I might be able to sneak a little work in here or there so we will see how quick the trash removal process goes. I feel that it will be the worst part of the entire project.

That’s quite a slope you’ve got your truck parked sideways on, Pooh. Didn’t know it was so hilly by you. ;-)

Kenny, I decided when I started cleaning out that I was not going ot be a pack rat. I am only saving lumber that is over 6’ in length or that is rough sawn or is a hard wood. Everything that I burned was pine so I didn’t feel too bad about it.

Dave, we only have a few hills in this country but hey will get you. I fought the pictures this morning but still cant get them right. I think I do but then it turns. Oh well. I wont win any awards but yall get the picture. ;)

Pooh, by any chance are you taking those pics with an iPhone? If so, there’s an easy fix for the sideways issue.

The easiest fix is to always take pictures in landscape mode with the volume buttons at the bottom. That’s what I do when I know I’ll be posting a picture on this site.

Yep, volume buttons on the bottom / home button under your right thumb.

Not sure how old those floor tiles are but be careful as they may contain asbestos. If they aren’t a full 12×12” I’d be leary.
