Just thought I would share some new pix.
We finally got through building the tack room with the exception of a few little finishing touches. It isn't perfect but a lot better than I was expecting with a couple of cowboys doing all the work (me and my Dad)LOL. Considering the contractor wanted to charge us over $4000 to build one and we got it done by ourselves for just a little over $600 and a little over 5 days work, it's pretty darn good. Parts of it look a little country-fied but it's hella stout and that's what matters.
Day 1: Got particle board up on the 2 inside walls and got the framework for one outside wall done.
Day 2: got the other wall framework done and framed in the door.
Day 3: Got all the interior wall lining put up and the rafters as well.
Day 4: Put up the exterior wall lining and most of the ceiling.
Day 5: Finished the ceiling, built the ladder up the side, put up the door track, built the door and hung it up.
Today: finished the final touches on the door and got it adjusted and hung straight, finishing touches inside to seal up cracks and open spaces in the corners and floor. Also went ahead and hung up my bridle rack on the far wall. Waiting for saddle racks to be delivered to put the saddles in there.
Now on to the critter pix. I have just recently made really good friends with one of our young dogs so he has been running loose to keep me company while I work on the tack room.
This is Trip.
And this is our old girl Jaycee. She gets the run of the place as she's left loose all the time. Oh, and if anyone wonders about her wrinkled lip, she will 'smile' whenever you talk to her.
They kept me company while I worked.
And poor Jaycee got tired of Trip, he's still mostly a puppy at just over a year old.
And now on to the horse pix.................finally LOL. I didn't realize until I came home that I didn't take any pix of my pasture full of bay horses :).
