Ye Olde Barn Raising, still…

Previously… in July.

Damn. Has it been four months already?

I guess that’s what happens when you’re doing it yourself, and going on a few trips in between. If I wasn’t such a control freak about things, maybe this would go faster. Or if I paid someone else to do it.

This post is more for me than anything, to document my (lack of) progress. It’s rather picture heavy, but continue reading if you’re interested…

I decided the 8′ ceiling on the first floor was going to make the building too tall. So I lowered the ceiling to 7′, installed the floor joists for the second floor, and started laying down floor sheathing. Apparently I failed to take pictures of that first part.

  1. That’s going to be a sweet little building. What’s the exterior sheathing and roofing going to be? The “picture heavy” documentation is really stop-action animation and I loved watching it develop in stages. Well done, guys!
