Part 1: Barn Workshop The Beginnings

09-05-2017 04:27 PM by PoohBaah | 6 comments »

Three years ago my wife and I were gifted an acre of land to build a home upon. Included in this acre was this barn. It is a good sized barn at 40’ x 50’ with a hay loft upstairs that is massive and it already has a concrete floor on most of it. Now it has been a hot topic with in the family of what we should do with this barn. My wife’s grandmother hates it for one reason or another and feels it needs torn down. I on the other hand see all the potential within and ju...

Part 2: Trash Removal Begins

09-13-2017 11:22 AM by PoohBaah | 8 comments »

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 ...

Well, it has been 6 months since the last update and well not much has changed. Between fall harvest, winter and now calving season coming early there was not much progress on the old barn but we are starting to gain some momentum now. I have been in contact with a local guy that is going to put the new roof on for me. I was in Menards on Saturday to pick up supplies for a new set of back steps and while loading the lumber I noticed they had 45 sheets of 12’ white steel in the discount ...

Part 4: Then there was less below and more above

Well we are currently between swaps right now. The box swap went really well and the mallet/hammer swap doesn’t start up for a few more weeks. Also things in the fields are going well and nearly all the cattle are moved to pasture. Even with all this going on I actually had a few free hours to get back into my barn and start cleaning. I started a fire in my burn barrel and also in my fire pit. So by dividing and conquering I was able to make some pretty decent headway. You can see in th...

Part 5: Small Steps Forward

06-12-2018 04:03 PM by PoohBaah | 12 comments »

There has been slow but somewhat steady progress the last two weeks in the barn. I have been able to allot a couple hours each week to try and work on the daunting task of trash removal and demolition. It took 3 separate sessions but I have finally gotten the old feed bunk removed. You can see from previous posts the strides that have been made. It is really starting to open up the space. There is still a lot of debris, dust and garbage to clean up but all these small steps are startin...
