Barn Raising Part 3

Well, after weeks of planning, sweating, laughing and swearing the barn is complete, and I am just thrilled with the way it turned out.In terms of “sweat equity” we did pretty well.  All of the lumber is rough cut and came from a sawmill in Sloansville, NY.  The front door was something we found discarded along the road, and the windows are old reclaimed sashes from my brother the contractor.  The vintage hardware for the big sliding door is a garage sale find for fifteen bucks.  The most expensive part of the whole project was the roof; we ordered custom lengths of tin so there would be no cutting involved.  Pretty cool!

    Wow. The only thing that could possibly make it even nicer, orange trim!
