Oooh how exciting! I'm also subbing for pictures. :)
passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia
Thank you for the support! It will probably take us a month just to get the structure up.... but I will definitely post pictures along the way! I'm sure I'll cry like a baby the first time I get to ride in it... :o)
We started putting the trusses up this week! We have 3 down and 13 to go. We are averaging 2 trusses every 5 hours. My husband works nights so he goes to the barn in the morning and works till 1. He's off Monday, Tuesday and he's taking off Wed so we should have the skeleton up by Wednesday and ready for the cover! He says he's taking a few days off of construction after the skeleton is done. Poor guy!
After the skeleton and cover we have: arena footing!, lights, endwalls (we are doing metal end walls to match our barn), kick wall, concrete isle ways for the front barn portion, then stalls! We weld are own stalls together so that will take some time.
We should be able to ride in it first week of August.. at that point it will at least be a covered arena. :o) I will probably cry like a baby when I first ride it!
