build-a-barn ~ now what

The last day of the barn build arrived before we knew it. It took three weeks, just like they said. If you count actual work days, it took about 12.

Brad & I watched the sunset together on the last day of the build. The sky wasn't nearly as spectacular as my last post, but we had a good laugh regardless. I wiped out climbing our house of hay, while trying to take a photo with a timer. I don't move as fast as I used to in 10 seconds!

Now it's our job to make the interior happen...electrical, plumbing, flooring, framing, stalls and walls...just to name a few things. Some will be contracted out, others "we" will do. The roof and storage side need to be insulated, and the overhang ceiling and exposed wood finished. The beams will get wrapped, except for the cedar wood.

Sooo much left to do, it's never ending! Some of the remaining work is being tied in with the house build, so it will be a while before the entire barn is actually finished. Thanks for reading along with our once in our lifetime barn build!!

It's beautiful! The rest will come together quickly. Can't wait to see horses heads looking out the windows ;)

So exciting to build a whole place from the ground up. Glad you're loving it.

Now you are in the "hurry up and wait" phase!

Love it! We did all the inside work ourselves too. You're going to have an awesome home for your horses.

By the time it's done, it's going to look like the Million Dollar Barn you see in magazines!!
