Our arena build is finally progressing again, YAY!! My last post was at the end of June. Not much happened in July. The electricians were here daily for a week plus in August, and the guy we hired to put up the tin was here all day last Saturday. Both of them have to come back and finish. Here is the progress to date:
Brad's bench to date
he wants to add a couple steps on the side
so it is easier for all ages to get on/off it
builders hung the door & completed their work
electricians mounted a ceiling fan in the horse shelter
The horse love it, especially Nemo.
Thank you Arline for all the helpful ideas!
We never would have thought of putting a fan in otherwise.
A flood light was mounted on the outside of the barn, that faces the shed.
Much safer when it gets really dark. Especially in the Winter.
the electrician's colorful rolling wire cart
(hay/storage side of the barn)
Saturday most of the remaining tin went up on the walls
I still can't get over what a huge difference that made!

Remi exploring, and me dreaming of riding...
arena to date (17 sec)
There is still a fair amount of work that remains, before the top layer of fines can be added. The electricians need to come back to finish, now that the tin is up. The wall and window tin needs to be completed, and service doors need to be hung. There are other interior finishing things Brad & I need to do and decide on. In the meantime, Brad is working on some exterior projects, like grading around the building and forming the side service door approach (for a concrete pad).
