Everything is finished excepting for the garage doors. We find that someone dropped the ball and never ordered them. Then they also forgot to order the windows for the garage doors. It wasn't until December that everything got installed, but our barn turned out great. Here are a few last pictures taken on the following day:
In the meantime, my Rhodies that I ordered online have arrived & they are now planted, along with a tiny white picket fence to discourage truck drivers from plowing through my plants. We are getting ready to return to San Marcos, hoping that everything will survive until our return!
These pictures were for the most part, taken later in the day after the cement mixer had already backed into the barn and dumped much of the concrete. Yes, our barn is big enough to do that!
The crew consisted of a family of brothers, all of Norwegian heritage (blond locks & blue eyes) who did an outstanding job of working together. We plan to use them to build the foundation of our house.
We are very pleased with the finished project. The guys did a great job!
For reasons I no longer remember, the crew was unable to return until the following week. Nearly the end of September, the work continues.
Now it is possible to see where the two large RV doors in the front, the "man" door also in the front, and the two smaller garage doors for autos along with one additional "man" door on the west side of the barn will be placed. It's coming together!
The rolls of blue packaging is the insulation, ready to be installed.
Bob and I spend over 7 months each year discovering America. In 2009, our travels took us through 31 states and the Disctrict of Columbia. In 2011 we were fortunate to travel to Alaska & back, and again in 2012, we toured most of the US and were able to include the Atlantic Provinces of Canada!
Historical sites and places of interest with an emphasis on rural America is what we strive to visit.
Although we consider ourselves full-timers, From January through April we remain stationary to better serve our clients preparing income taxes. While on the road we continue to provide income tax planning & preparation services.
