A Barn Project

Today is a big day.  Why you wonder?

We have a project starting here.  And to make things more exciting, Hubby is paying someone to do it!

So we have this awesome barn.  It was built in the late 1800’s.  The craftsmanship is spectacular – square nails, solid beams…

Here is the loft.  Can you see the scary ladder the kids climb?

There are no rails to break your fall.

Basically if you’re a dare devil or under the age of 12 you will go to the loft.

Project:

We are having stairs and rails put in.  The stairs will be built in one of the horse stalls and run up through the loft floor.  To do this, they will be cutting the floor in a small section.

We do not want to witness this part!

The best part of the project (to me) is that we are using all salvaged barn wood. 

The best part of the project for the girls & Hubby is that the loft will be a usable space.  It will be the kids hang out area.

Have a great weekend!
