|This is the backside of the barn. You can see it is sinking on the left hand side.|
|First day of digging completed.|
This is going to create far more dirt so I will be attempting to spread that all out on the barn lot side to cover all the rocks and get a nice level area ready for pasture seed. I went and purchased some dry pasture seed (doesn't need to be irrigated) a 50# bag costs $60. Once it is all dug out, roof repaired and windows installed I will plant the seed. I may just leave a 10 foot section near the barn unplanted so I can get the rest of the pasture planted.
|Two sections all dug out, see the row of supports back under the barn.|
The wind has been howling and it ripped our wood shed door hinge screws right out of the wood. I am going to have to purchase some 8 inch long bolts to bolt the door back in place.
The chicken door worked! The chickens came out this morning without any difficulties. They ran around in the rain all day. Digging under the barn made me immune to the rain.
All the beams are sitting on rocks under the barn. No concrete and no precast anything, just good old fashioned flat rocks.
