We have been busy mowing and chipping and clearing the brush from around the barn, and we are finally to the point of barn refurbishment! Our expert Barn Guy, Jeff Thompson of Colonial Woodwrights, has begun removing the rotted side boards, sills, and will replace with locally milled lumber. The small building to the right of the barn was the “stripping shed” and is in pretty bad shape. Jeff (husband Jeff) has plans to rebuild into a man cave for whiskey drinking with Kevin Reid. The wooded area beyond the barn will be cleared, and become pastures for the farm animals.
