Barnraising! (Part 2)

Yesterday work continued on the barn. These two guys (the builders) are amazing -- they know exactly what they're doing. Don says he's learning lots just from watching the procedures.

Early yesterday morning when I stepped outside to release the chickens from their coop, I saw a fawn exploring the building site.

Yesterday the builders worked on getting the roof ready to raise.

They prepped the trusses...

...and literally built the roof on the ground.

Makes sense, doesn't it, to do the steep dangerous work at ground level?

The roof will be raised in sections.

Today the roof will be raised -- literally!


  1. I love this post. We are getting ready to put up our pole barn. Please, please show them raising the roof/truss piece. So exciting !
