|Day 1 progress 20 sq ft.|
|Day 2 progress 120sq ft.|
One of the things I noticed was the side panels are going to have to be replaced. The old ones are broken, cracked and falling apart. Once I get that side of the floor completed I will pull off the rest of the boards from the inside of the wall.
I pulled off and replaced the wall boards. The floor is not very level. Even after I jacked up the outer wall and repaired it. Not a big deal, enough screws and the whole thing will stay together regardless. I emptied out the center so I could start working on it. The center is almost 12 feet wide. Which works out well as I have some 8ft long tongue and groove flooring for this section. I swept the floor after clearing it and started scraping it to get the rest of the sheep dung off. After talking with Annmarie and having a barn intervention it was decided that I would rip out the center section of flooring so that there aren't multiple heights of flooring. I jerked a couple of pieces up and they are dimensional lumber, 2 inches thick. Same of the boards running long ways under the flooring. Of course the support boards are not on even 4 foot centers. This will cause me to add one or two more boards long ways 45 feet. I am going to salvage the boards I rip up off the floor to use as new underlayment runners. I will hopefully only have to add one runner but two is the maximum I will have to add. They I just need to alternate four foot sections on the floor.
|Day 3, right side completed.|
I did find three blue eggs out in the barn on top of some old gunny sacks. Unfortunately, I did not know how long they had been there so I broke them open on the ground. I knew there was another hiding spot, I just could not find it.
