Update on barn.
Every day I got up and the first thing in my mind was... what's the list for the day.
In What Order,... thinking through every task in detail in order to not touch things twice, getting things done in a needy fashion.
What is that going to leave me for the next move, what prep do I need to do for tomorrow?
How can I build this or that and save time, materials, and energy. What materials do I have that I can use, What materials are going to be necessary to purchase.
Who do I need to call for the barn, metal, wood, etc...
What supplies do I need for the day, Do I have them, What do I need for tomorrow?
Who has the cheapest prices today? Great... call suppliers ASAP... again...
Gas... Gas do we have enough gas and oil?
I find now that I rarely ever just stopped! Looked at all the progress and while I was estattic with daily results I was NOT seeing the full picture.
Thank you Troy, for getting all of this on a roll, I could have never gotten up that first pole without your guidance, help,and teachings. You are the person that put ALL of this in motion. Yes I had the thoughts and plans done but I had no one to help me get the thing UP and Ready for animals.
Karl is to be credited with all the craftmanship that has gone into my little barn.
Its looks are rustic, but this is what I needed in order to fit into the area I have placed the barn. I did not want it to stand out too badly in the winter. I can only hope my neighbors can see the thought I put into making sure it was not a RED BARN with a GREEN ROOF that screamed at them as they drove by...
