I-Beam Saga

Ed did some shopping for an I-Beam needed for the new barn. The beam needs to be about 21’ 7” and the beams only come 20’. He was going to have to buy 2 beams & have them welded together & then cut off the excess. This process was going to cost us about $700. Earlier this year Ed had gone up into the attic of the yellow barn (Setting up a place for the cats to get out of the cold) and saw an I-Beam. He went up again to double check the size, it is 23’. The yellow barn will be torn down as soon as the new barn is up and closed in. What to do with the beam. Hmm. Since we have to take it down eventually anyway, why not use it instead of spending the money.
It was nerve wracking watching him take it down, but the beam is now safely installed at its new home in the barn.

Garden

We (I may be using that term rather loosely as it is mostly Ed) have been working on our garden area this spring. Ed built all the raised beds and we have an honest to goodness vegetable garden. We will be putting up the deer fence this weekend and this winter Ed plans to build the pickets for the fence. It is looking great. We now have corn, zucchini, cucumber, cabbage, beans, watermelon, cantaloupe, pumpkin,spaghetti squash, potatoes, tomatoe, pepper, eggplant and sunflower. In a separate area we have planted aspargus. If everything makes it thru the growing we should have some great meals.

It’s not that Ed hasn’t done anything, It’s that I have not been good about posing.

I have been suck a BAD Blogger. Ed has been working hard on the house for the past year, I just have not been very good about getting the pictures onto the site. I will try to do better.
For now, I will hope to get you all caught up with the progress that has been made.

Front Door under construction

We had the front door built and installed waiting for the raised panels (which were in the barn that got hit with the high wind. Ed and AJ brought the panels for the bottom 3 sections into the house & Ed will complete the install sometime this week. I am designing the stained glass for the insert at the top and the side lights. Hopefully this won’t take too long, We’ll have to see.

Step Landings

Ed just got the landing’s done at the bottom of the entry steps. They look great, it is nice to have the landing instead of stepping into dirt or worse, the sticker weeds.
