Progress! I love progress. I'm hopeful that I can see some metal on this bad boy tomorrow. Then I can begin customizing the interior for our needs. We have a loose plan that involves some stalls, some hay storage, a feed room, and an area for milking. Our long term plans include having hot and cold water (it will have cold water to start) so we can do our bottle mixing for the calves and our milking dishes in the barn. Then maybe we can have our kitchen back for people food!
We've never built, or rather, had anything built on this scale before. The construction business is a stressful one. We've had several people comment that this barn is being built right, which is a good thing to hear. The retired civil engineer from down the road commented that it is very well built, with 6x6 posts set at the right distance and more trusses than the typical pole barn package. He said he's seen many packages erected to find out they don't meet code. We happen to live in a county that has no building codes but he said this one meets or exceeds all the codes he knows of.
