Day three Rained out :-(

Well as it turns out it was a good thing we stopped for lunch because two hours later we had some good wind and tornado warnings, it would not have been good to have the trusses half done with that wind. To bad to have a crane like this just waiting thou.
Jan feeds us well :)She has always been to good to me.
Brother Bob and Dad, scatching his head with all those angles :)Looking good Bob
Myself,Ron, and Nephew kyle finishing the last part of the wall, and josh supplying material from the ground.
Jan's great rolls !!!
Final wall framing before the trusses.

Steve is getting a great start on the coupala!! I have always liked these on buildings and now was my chance to have one.

Well it looks like it is time for a nap,we finished all of the framing and are ready to set trusses. Then the rain came and doesn't look like it is going to stop anytime soon. Jan fixed us all some terrific cinnamon rolls for break time and another great lunch. Looks like I will have to get some inside work done this afternoon.


  1. Doug and Jan,

    Now I'm jealous and hungry. It's fun watching your barn go up. You should have some great weather this weekend.

  2. Hi Steve,
    I can't believe my barn is going up either, I have dreamed of it for a long time. I have built many small sheds over the years, mainly with recycled materials. My family has this little problem of junk(good stuff)collecting and I have really tried to control this,but I did manage to collect a lot of the framing materials witch helped quite a bit for cost. I don't mind taking apart old buildings.
