Our Barn

We are celebrating our first year in our farmhouse!  Yesterday I shared some projects that we accomplished on the inside, but we bought this home for the land and the barns.  

Our big barn is 120+ years old and is a work of art.  The square head nails, the hand cut logs, and just the size of the timbers, is amazing.

I cannot do it justice in photos, but I tried.




See the yellow rope?
That was the only safety rail.  So we installed a railing made from reclaimed barn wood.

 That's a long drop down!
New railings.

See the straight ladder?  That was the only way to get to the loft.
We had stairs installed.  We placed them in one of the 6 horse stalls and had them made from reclaimed wood.





Now we can use the loft.



My kids head back to school Monday, so I am going to enjoy the last few days of laziness with no schedule.  I'll be on FB and pop in at the end of the week.
Til then...
