A New Barn

Our current barn where the cows are kept and milked is really little more than a tumble-down shack, it features holes in the roof and a rotted out floor. It is the epitome of the "rustic and informal look" as Micah likes to say. :-) There is no way it will make it through another winter and so Mr. G has endeavored to build a new shelter before the snow flies. The new barn will be large enough to store some hay in, as well as put the fanning mill and plow etc. in.


  1. Hooray for Mr. G using mortise-and-tenon. My dad (an amateur, but passionate, woodworker) is reading a book about the art of timber-framing and hopefully we can build our house using those techniques. They really stand the test of time.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Paris! Much love to you all.

  2. That's awesome! Aaron would love to be able to do that someday. He loves carpentry. Since we live in a small town house in the city, he doesn't have the room to play with wood anymore. Hopefully when he graduates we'll move to a larger space and he can work with wood again.

    Happy Thanksgiving, God Bless!


  3. How cool. I can't wait to see pictures once it is further along.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. How awesome! I too can't wait to see more in progress pictures. I'd love for David to be able to do this someday. I think he got quite jealous when I told him about Mr. G's project. :) He loves carpentry and old tools and techniques.

    Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Happy 1st Thanksgiving to Asa!
