Day 21 - Can you say, tomorrow?

Image from an article about a barn build by Franklin Builders: http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Bouncing-back-at-site-of-barn-collapse-1313780.php

So, it is day 21 since people started working on our property in preparation for the building and arena.  I suppose numbering the days is a bit unrepresentative of the project because there was more planing done than just a few weeks, this has been a life-long dream.  Rick remarked that every time he grabs a notepad he finds barn drawings in it! LOL Yes, I have been thinking about this since I was a child.

The site is dry as we've had no rain for days. The pond area (which they won't be dealing with) is also looking good.  There is a natural spring feeding it and last night, the frogs were having some kind of party out there! There is clean-up that will happen after the builders leave so we will see Irvin again. We suspect a culvert may have to be installed near the pond, under the dirt/gravel driveway that leads out to the big field.

The builders arrive tomorrow morning between 8:00 am -9:00 pm.The crew will bring in a camper to live in and for the next three weeks. This is exciting! Rick will be taking photos and video and I'll be reporting...stay tuned!

I am so excied for you! It has always been my life long dream to build the perfect barn. I would always have my Papaw build little toy barns for my Breyer horses. Congratulations on living the dream!
