Tackling a Much Needed Job — Thursday, January 20, 2022

The tractor shed (the oldest building in our place) needed a new roof.

So, Monday, Terry and I started the process of removing all the tiles, and the nails. (Yes, I help.)

It was a wee bit of a mess (like this wind-strewn mess of corn leaves)

But we are making it.  Soon we will add on the sheeting, the tar paper, and the new metal roofing.

Then we will tackle the new garage doors and add some new windows.

There is a deep sense of peace in repairing old buildings.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda

  1. Hi, Linda! Just wondering if you knew that some of your posts, as you do them in advance, are being posted for us to see right away. Like this one for Thursday. Not sure why WordPress is doing that to you.😏.

    Hope you’re having a good day. Be careful in that wind and cold.
    Love you!

  2. I’m rebuilding (actually put up a new roof) of one of my stone haystacks. Hope to finish it this next week if the weather stays fine. It definitely brings a sense of peace repairing it. A couple of afternoons now of me, the hammer, and the beautiful nature around.
    all best!
