Let the Destruction Begin!

In May, one of the many HUGE wind storms we had blew the tin roof off the south side of the barn and almost got the North side...you can see the tires that we put on top to keep the roof on. The wind took many of the old wood shingles underneath the tin and scattered them about the yard and pasture. After picking them all up, we noticed that the roof was not in very good shape on the south part (and the walls are not the best either) so we decided to replace the whole south side. We have spent the last few days gutting the inside of it out and pushed in in today.

Back view before destruction....the right hand side is the "bad" side.

There she goes.........


Now the not so fun part of cleaning up the mess and then the rebuilding process can begin. So...now you know what the next few days of mine will be spent doing.

Looks like a BIG project. Good luck with all that. Cleaning up is always the worst part of any project if you ask me :)!

Sorry to hear you didn't get any rain. I'll keep praying that you guys get the rain you need soon. I'll even do a little dance to hopefully help the rain come..he he!

Have a great day!

You have quite a job going on there. It will be interesting to follow the progress. Take lots of pictures!

Great pictures! You will have some super 'after' ones for us too! There is always something that needs fixing isn't there? I wish I could have a full time carpenter, boy would I keep him busy fixing things! Be careful, don't step on any nails! Been there, done that! :0(
