Yesterday we worked on the new tractor shed and kicked butt in a really large scale. We started out in the morning with Josh coming to clean the barns. As he cleaned the barn, we started gathering the tools to build the tractor shed after installing the other six posts for the super structure. First, we had to pull the fourth one from the day before and re-dig the hole six inches closer to the back post. I did that while Josh finished up and then we flew into the building. Vick was the go between supplying whatever Josh and I needed as we installed posts and tie boards. We kept her hopping, filling the nail gun, handing it to us and checking plumb on the posts, etc. Below is a day before picture…and then a yesterday picture, showing progress the progress we made.
After we finished, we went down to the town park and listened to a gent playing and singing in the town gazebo. It was the last performance of the summer and Lynda asked us to accompany her for awhile and relax. We went to Cumberland farms and got a sandwich and drink to enjoy along with the music. It was a perfect end to a perfect day.
Vick called Stemple’s sawmill for 2x4’s for the sides of the building in hopes of being able to pick them up today. We can also pick up the kiln dried 2x8’s for the roof and install them. Oh wow, we will need a bunch of four inch boards from the saw mill for purling's under the metal roofing. Crap, I forgot those… Vick will say, “What’s new about that…You forgetting?” Check the pictures out of the building and some beautiful flowers out front. Look at the zillion tomatoes in the garden too!
