The old barn

 I worked on the old barn today. I HATE working with electricity but........ I like having lights. So it put a switch in the Saddle room. It wasn't that hard but I needed to wrap my mind around it. That was probably the hardest part. Here's the outside of the saddle/gear room. I dont like the word tack, I have gear not tack. Sorry off on a tangent. The door way is maybe 5ish feet tall, I'm 6 foot. Let me tell you the door frame is SOLID. So the bumps on my head tell me. This is the north side of the barn.

This is the inside, it was worse than the picture shows. I hate pack rats nasty, dirty creatures. I'm wearing a dust cup when I'm in here cleaning. When its done it will be nice to have a place to put grain and other stuff and get it out of the garage.

Here's the south side of the barn.

Looking in the barn from the southside. There is a bunch of posts by the trough that I will pull out it will open that area up.

The main support beam. It's pretty dadgum stout. Love the way way to build stuff.
This part of the barn is kinda the middle. This is where I was thinking of putting the hitching rail. And knocking a doorway in the wall by the indian. Just to the right of the saddle racks. That would go into the saddle/gear room.
So that is the barn and the work that I need to do but I think it will be worth it. Well until next time take care

You got your work cut out for you. The doorway you plan to cut in to the saddle room should be a lot better than the 5 ft. doorway; musta been someone short who built that one. It'll be nice to have a place to get out of the weather on those days you have to saddle up and it's raining or windy r snowing.
