Barn Progress

Well, its been a week since the trusses went up and progress has been slow. The gable end walls are framed and the nailers for the siding are on the walls. Yesterday half of the roofing was installed. No contractor today though. And maybe that was a good thing. They almost always leave at 3:30 on the dot. Today at a little after 3PM a tree fell over from the game lands and landed across the bottom of the old road that the contractor is using for site access.
This is still left over Hurricane Sandy mess. This tree is in the midst of a tangle of trees, all from the game lands, and a real pain to get cleared up. There was no wind or storm today. In fact it was a perfect late spring day; blue skies, low 80s, very light breeze. I was taking wash off the clothes line when I heard cracking. The whole thing took a couple minutes to come completely down.

So now Alan has to clean up this mess so the contractors can access the site again. We have to assume they will be coming at 7:30 tomorrow morning.

Here are some pics of the barn progress:
