Wrecking and building

Barn detail

Made it back to the new farm to start demo for the new seedling room. I don’t get to do much bigger construction work, and this is really just interior framing and insulating, nothing complicated or structural, but it’s a fair-sized project, involving new windows and doors, what I’d still call big rough carpentry fun! The barn is a small one, 24’x30′ (7.3x9m), about 20-30 years old. The structure is simple, basic, easy-to-understand—what you see is what it looks like. The beam in the pic is one of a dozen or so that support the upper floor. What could be clearer! We’re turning half of the lower level, with its poured concrete floor and concrete block walls, into a fully winterized space that’ll hopefully be home to new herb seedlings by the end of January!

    Sounds like a great, and very practical project.  Basic is a good thing – and very impressive to this clueless-in-the-world of building blogger ;-) Looking forward to seeing those herb seedlings in their new home later this month.

    Mike, are you moving or are you expanding? I must have missed a post or two!


  3. I love construction projects…can’t wait to see what you all end up with!
