My wife's granddad put up this corn-crib some 80 years ago and my dad-in-law plastered three sides after they stopped using it to store grain. That made it into a wind-tight and useful horse barn. This wooden side (pictured below) was starting to get really weathered. It didn't show from the road, so looks weren't the issue. However, I love this old building and wanted to save it.
My brother-in-law is way up top fixing the peak.
Dan put in a clear piece of siding, for a window to let in light.
Randy and Henry put in the final touches on my doors.
The whole place looks a lot better now, huh? (Rear view: above. From the road: below)
A special thank you to Randy, Dan and Henry.
You guys did a great job... and it was really fun having you around the home place!
(...by the way, this farm was Randy's home place when he was growing up.)
