After the walls were rebuilt, drain tiles were placed around three sides of the barn. The white pipe in the picture is the tile.
There was lots of outside work but there was just as much going on inside. A new floor that covers the entire upper level of the barn was put in and many support beams had to be replaced. Some of the new support beams came from a dairy barn (built in 1916) that was on the property and was taken down before the house was built. Walnut was a common wood used in that barn but then walnut likes to grow here so why not!
Denny is putting in the new windows, they make the windows themselves, back at their shop.
WHAT IS THAT GUY DOING?
He is working on the inside of one of the windows at the peak of the barn (don't think those will get washed very often).
