Back in July of 2010, I wrote about the barn that we were building for our horse and goats. Life was very busy in those days. We worked in the worst of Georgia’s summer heat and I began to stop posting on the blog. Somehow after a day of barn-building, sitting down and writing sounded like pure torture. Of course, now that it’s finished and were 5,000 miles away from our little Southern property — revisiting this post fills me with a sense of peace and accomplishment.
We planned for 12′ x 12′ stalls, a nice 6′ x 24′ covered area, and a roomy loft for hay storage. Josh sunk the posts and the barn began to take shape.
Notice Elrod lolling about in front of the barn and the girls investigating this interesting new structure in their paddock. Elrod became quite annoying during the staining process. He wanted to eat the brushes and had to be put in the backyard until the brushes were safely put away.
