Hello all. I hope all of my followers had a wonderful Thanksgiving. This is what Mike and I did last January. I need to get caught up before 2018 is over, lol.
I love the trees and fields at the back of our property...and it is flat:)
OK...time for some work. Mike is digging out some of the sand that is too high along the house so we can seed:
It's ready for seed:
And hay. We can't find straw here but there is a ton of hay around:
Mike building a quick ramp out of leftover pressure treated wood to make it easy to go in and out of the "barn":
Mike adds a dozen or so a day of truss clips on the inside of the barn as required:
Ugh...it's time for the uglies. Her are our shingles:
The tractor is going to make this so much easier:
I'm on the roof. Mike throws the shingle packs up to me and I spread them out on the roof:
Getting ready to start the first row:
Moving right along. We have our system. Mike nails the shingles down using a roofing coil gun while I line the shingles up:
Sadly I have been slacking in the camera department. As I look back I cannot find a picture of the other side completed. Anyway it took us 3 days to shingle the entire roof.
Our lovely barn/workshop inside. Mike is working on a well house and this is the cover:
More seed and hay where the electric company left their mess. I wish I could bill them, lol.
Working on the drip edge on the peak:
And the sides:
Mike's new well house:
Other peak. I hate being on a ladder that high. I'm glad Mike has good balance:
Murphy's Law....put seed down and the turkeys will come, lol.
I love winters in Florida:):)
That's all for now. I will try and catch everyone up and get to our animals soon which is just fun.:)
