|Hay bay #2 has two levels of floor!|
|Grain Elevator ripped off front of barn.|
The soon to be tack room got shoveled out. We finished ripping out the tack room entrance hall obstructions. Scraped the dried poop off the floor and got it all cleaned up. There is now a hole in the ceiling where the wooden grain chute used to be. I really want to make this into a hole for some stairs. This would be the stairs to get to the storage room above the tack room. A later project, not a current priority. The area above the tack room door needed to be cleaned out so we can get all the trash out of the barn. That space is where the roof needs to be repaired. Now it is accessible.
I LOVE the tractor. We hooked onto the grain elevator on the front of the barn with a chain and pulled it down in 10 tries with the tractor. This would have taken almost a day to do it by hand. It took us 30 minutes with the tractor. Another hour and we ripped off the low loose boards. The granary is another set of 2x6 turned and then tongue and groove boards on the inside. This makes the outer walls on the two outside walls 12 inches thick. I need to put a couple windows in and the depth of the window sill is causing me grief.
