Well, the barn is still not done!! But it is a lot closer...

The hay loft shorty wall is done, so this is what it now looks like on the inside:

IMG_0005.jpg, not a whole lot different.

But DE cut out the doors to load hay


...of course, photographing the cut-outs can be challenging with a horse like Boojum.

Then he made the doors, and installed them:


And then it was time for the Fish! We have two 16' long fish which were supposed to go on our old boat for advertising, but then the boat crashed...:

08 11 26 040.jpg 2008, so the Fish have just been hanging around stacked up in the dooryard. So today, we cleaned up one Fish and heisted it onto the barn.


Here it is it's new home.


The second Fish will go on DH's boat shop.

The best part, though, is the warm room. Unbelievable to have a 6x12 heated room for meds, shampoos, saddles...

Whoo hoo!

When you guys get out of the diving business you can go into the barn building business. You all are doing a beautiful job!

Wow, yes, love it. Given that every room in my house (really, ever single one) has a renovation plan, we'll probably be doing that for the next 5 years. But some magical day in the future, I can't wait to give our barn some TLC too. Loved seeing the transformation. Looks like the primary resident approves too

Horse people are probably the only ones who would call your barn Stunning, but it ist

What craftsmanship
