The 20 Year old Post and Beam Barn was in despaired need of repair and we set out to bring back the beauty and pride to the building. Plans are to rectify the skew angles after the barn sank a foot out of plum, replace the roof, walls, windows and floors. We want to change the extension and transform the whole barn it into a multi purpose function hall, to host barn dances, classes, parties, and facilitate the indoor parts of our farm tours with large groups and school classes.

From Tree to Timber
Cutting the trees in the own forrest
cutting the logs into rafters, boards and joists
Home Made Beams for the Job
Its a blessing to have the timber on the farm, and "all" we need to do is cut them inside the forrest, drag them out and shape them into beams. It needed one hell of a lot of logs. Soon enough a big pile of rafters was cut and stacked to dry.
