There's Always A Plan



And while it might take until the last day of construction to actually see it, nailed to the wall, we know that there's always a plan.



The new shed. Not the way we'd originally envisioned it - I won't bore you with that long story (you can find excerpts in my twitters ;-) - but a very long, very functional, very nice shed that we are very happy with.



The sheep have already issued their approval by using the far end as a spillover from their big stall on the other side of the black wall. The close end will be finished out for storage. The middle will be gated off so that the sheep have access to any or all four of the remaining six bents, in whichever configuration we need at the time.

If you are not familiar with tobacco barns, each post delineates a "bent". When they are converted into horse barns, for example, each bent becomes a stall. These first two bents are the two that are going to be enclosed for storage. The ultimate plan is to convert one of the other outbuildings into an on-farm shop and studio.

I'll keep you posted.

The shed looks like a lovely addition. Is it also fitted for electrical and water? I m sure the sheep will stake their claim in the new shed!

What a beautiful addition! I know what you mean about plans and barns... We're still building ours and it has been atleast 6 years! 8) Oh well, you sure learn a lot in the process, and that's worth it.

I wanted to let you know I received my etsy package yesterday and am thrilled! Thank you so much... A check went in the mail today. Hopefully you'll have it in a few days. Thanks again! I'll be sure and post about my process on the blog. :D

No water and electric. Doubt we'll worry about water as it's just on the other side of the black wall, but some lights would be nice ;-).
