Barn Renovation - Days 2-8

Well, the south side of the barn is finished!!! Took longer than my husband hoped for but in this blazing heat I'm not sure what more to have expected. I personally wouldn't have done anything but sit still. John, however, is one who will work outside in the 100 degree temps, sun blazing on him, 20 feet or so up on a ladder. I tried to convince him to let it go until it was a little cooler but well, you know how it is with men sometimes!!!

Here's a picture of one of the horizontal support beams that the boards are nailed to. As you can see it is a rough cut from the tree. Look closely and you can see the bark!

So glad this side is finished. It is certainly the hardest of the four sides. Next we will work on the North side, the second hardest side. What will make this side easier is that there is a loft on this side of the barn. Hopefully not as much up and down ladders!!!

What a gorgeous barn. I love the color. Makes me wish for Fall. It can't get here fast enough.
