The contractors are done with the barn and we are waiting for the final grading. Now comes our hard work. Today we got the first coat of stain on the wood siding, and a little bit of second coat. We went through 5 gallons of stain today.
Now comes the hard part, deciding what to do to make the barn look like an old Pennsylvania German barn. We have all the old hinges and we bought galvanized half round gutter.
