Looks like a good fix. Now you'll be able to clean things up

in there, without worry of things getting whitewashed.

In that 2nd last pic-is that a set of 6-12 button treads laying there

looking for a new home?

No, but there is a good truck tire type GT tire I'm saving. Rest are spares of various sizes.

     The block layers did all that in one day????  I am impressed at that feet alone.  that is not a fun job to do and is time consuming.  Looks like it is going well and that barn would look great on my  land here.  You need a good pellet rifle to take care of those birds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  You start getting two or three a day and they will get the hint very quickly.

No, but it was only over a couple of days.
The rebar and window sills took one day, the blocks and pointing basically a second.

There's a couple little things I thought would be done before he pulled out, but I am waiting on a callback from him on those.

That is anice old barn, glad to see you go it repaired and will be able to use for years to come.

 

I would love to take an old barn like that and turn in to a big home, my cousin lived next door to one they did like that, it was soooo cool!

Good job at saving a beautiful, useful old building. The shingles look good as well--- having a good roof is key to having a useful building. Congratulations.

Wow Alan ,that really looks good, you have all kinds of dry storage now. Time to buy more toys to fill it up with !! :thumbs:

 

And I really like the pallet racks, I've got to get some more for us at work, they really help with storage.

Might be inconvenient to come get them when you want to use them, but I'm sure I could find you a little space... :D
