With the settlement on our barn, we can build a little barn! Yay! We were shocked to find out that there was money left after depreciating our 100 yr. old girl! I knew she was worth it and more, but I didn't think anyone else would agree with me.
So now we look into building something to house our Farmgirl Country Sales...and I'm thinking a farm needs a red barn with a real barn roof. I've never shopped for a barn so this will be the ultimate shopping spree.
We hope to save the wood from the old one - a family member was called to give his opinion on what to do - can you imagine that he said to burn it down??? Not in a million years would we do that. We appreciate his input however. Does it sound like we have some emotional attachment?
We think the foundation walls can be saved and maybe - just maybe - we can put a roof over part of it. Even if we can't walk along the sides, we can use the space for something. I'm thinking a greenhouse...I just thought of that as I write! How cool would that be??? Maybe the roof would be a see through deal. Oh wow - a huge potty shed! Well - give me your thoughts and suggestions.
We need to find someone to take the top part down. The barn measures 80' x 30'.
Note: When I was out in the yard, taking an updated picture of our barn, many Canadian Honkers flew north making lots of noise!!! Yay! Spring is coming!!
