And we’re back.

 

Baby barn work commences…. again.

And I have to ask – are we the only ones who take a year to remodel what is in essence a small shed?

On second thought, don’t answer that. I don’t want to know.

So we’ve moved around to the back half to finish our utterly favorite part…..and by that I mean the hellish nightmare that is angled trim work. I believe we’ve established we suck at this and not wanting to break tradition, we still do.

How badly do we suck?

I’m glad you asked.

 

 

Badly enough to require shaving corners with less than modern tools if you’re my other half.

What….

You mean 1940’s saws aren’t still viable members of the tool arsenal?

Yes, that’s always my reaction as well….

But the husband says it still has life left in it.

Corners were turned…

Though not all of them where they should be…

As the poppa barn ( who’s still screaming for paint and agrees with River how wonderful he would look in a nice rusty red with white trim ) looked on in horror.

      1. It’s from the mid-80s. I built it while renting the house next door. A friend and I actually put it up on 4×4 “rails” and dragged it over here when we bough this house (I think you hubs would approve of that 😉 I was going to tear it down, but the T-111 siding is actual;y still in good shape, and surprisingly, the shed is level and almost square. I’m going to weatherproof the T-111, cover it with vinyl siding and PVC trim, replace the roof, add an overhang and hope it can stand for another 25 years. If I tear it down, it’s successor will be bigger and more expensive.

      2. That’s what we thought…. and we stripped ours to the frame. I like the rails idea though, at least you know it’s square. That was our major problem, dirt floor and major settling.

  1. River, I see I got back just in time. The last time I saw baby barn I think you or your husband was digging around in its dirt floor? Does that sound right? My memory’s a little fuzzy. So when do you get your she shed? Because we have Poppa Barn and now Baby Barn. It just seems like there’s gotta be a woman barn/shed, too. Mona

  2. Well, there’s always caulk to fill in those gaping gaps — just don’t try to save money with cheap caulk, or he’ll be doing it over again in a year or two (that is, if he lives that long, considering the exposed wire on that old electric saw).
