We are slowly, ever so slowly, making progress. And I apologize if I sound ungrateful or impatient – it’s just been a long, arduous process of late and we are desperately in need of a break. Just one weekend to sleep in, have breakfast in bed, maybe read the New York Times and work on the crossword off and on all day. You know, like we used to do in the old days… before we decided to turn our lives upside down and start up a farm.
But as I said, progress has definitely been made. The barn posts and trusses are in place and have passed inspection. Framing is starting and some of the concrete was poured last week. The metal was ordered today and it sounds like we may have a finished barn in about two weeks! That will be exciting. And then it is on to the next project – framing the interior spaces inside and setting up our solar panels which we will be doing ourselves.

Having some semblance of a structure on the site sure makes a big difference. The site doesn’t look quite as desolate as it did when we first cleared it.
