Countdown to barn construction commencement in 3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . . .
FarmWife and FarmHusband have arranged for their girls to play at a friends' house today. My breakfast was enjoyed to the soothing accompaniment of a snapping tape measure, and certain portions of the adjacent driveway have been swept clear and measured. I have an exciting feeling . . . by this time next week, my friends, I could very well have the beginnings of my own snug barn!
Yes, I said the B word—this is no shed we're building! It will have an aisle, a feed room, a tack room, and a run-in stall. I'd say that sounds like a barn, wouldn't you? So what if it will be petite—I'm petite myself, so long as you gauge me vertically and not horizontally!
Thank you all for the wonderful ideas you sent over regarding shed/barn dos and don'ts. I'll have a set of cross-ties, a nameplate, and an insulated water tub thanks to you! Unfortunately, FarmWife nixed the featherbed, shower, and soaker-tub suggestions due to budgetary constraints.
I suppose I'd better get over there and supervise the survey crew.
Ears to you!
