Barn Reno and We’re Seeing Green
… as did a large dumpster.
We were so excited to see the start of something we’ve been talking about for years — literally. We’ve lived here for a decade and this is the biggest project yet. I have an ongoing to-do list that I dream about (do you?!), but this project has always topped the list (more from necessity than aesthetics!).
Trucks and supplies arrived one after the other that first morning. The men had the old slate off in a jiffy. I saved some for future projects.
We also saved the rusty corrugated steel on the lower part of the barn. I have all sorts of ideas for recycling it!
They worked for about a week, and soon we could see a hint of green like a beacon in the winter-worn hills.
Then came a freak snowstorm. They had to sweep the roof that morning, before they could replace old steel with new. Luckily the steepest part of the barn was already complete!
It’s finally finished and today the sky was bright and blue with big, puffy clouds.
Which means we’re seeing green everywhere, not just up there …
Fresh grass in the pastures, garlic shooting up in the garden …
And the first buds are just about to burst with green leaves and apple blossoms.
There’s nothing like a bit o’ green to spur all sorts of ideas and projects and work ethic. Let the busy season begin!
Happy spring, friends!
