Barn Assembly – Day One

0

This morning, a crew from Tri-County Barns came to start installing our barn! Several trucks drove up our driveway, with flatbeds full of stall partitions, roof panels and support beams. Within a few hours, the stall and the tack room walls were in place. It was fun to watch!

After the crew left for the day, Lightening Ball and I took a walk around the barn site. I led him up the barn aisle and let him sniff all the roof panels stacked on the ground. Lightening Ball was interested in everything, showing lots of curiosity (and very little nervousness).

The crew will work on installing the roof and support beams over the next couple of days — stay tuned for more updates!
