Barn Metamorphosis

We took on the project of creating a working show barn (okay, not a fancy barn, but still) from the shell of a 32 x 58 metal barn.  Here is the transformation with beginning and current pictures.

The old barn is getting a new concrete center aisle tomorrow.

In the beginning just cow stalls were in the barn.

Originally in the barn were just a couple of cow stalls, we used some of the walls and support beams and then added our own.

It has come a long way with the original lights hanging by hay string.  Now full electrical runs throughout the barn.

 

Stalls are almost ready for horses.

Making the add-on stalls tall enough for the big girl my little girl will become (did you follow that?).

Not long after we thought we were complete we added the “annex” to house

Try Delta, the OTTB and the baby when she comes from Colorado.

It has been a wonderful journey and we are really enjoying our new place.  Thanks for always riding along!
