I mentioned that the hubster is getting a workshop out of this barn rehab too, right? It will be an office space, an electronics and ham radio lab, and a tinkerer's woodshop with some essential tools--we're getting him all outfitted so he can be my custom picture frame builder! Oh, and so he can invent the next Great Technology Device. It might be about batteries. Or maybe solar power. Or both. Anyway, here's how the space is shaping up. It's on the first floor of the barn, with a wall dividing him from the horses and tack room. After we cleared out the antique lumber (most of it--Mom couldn't resist keeping a few pieces), we realized that the sheer weight of all those beams had been pushing the exterior wall right off its foundation. So we fixed that, and used some beams to reinforce the structure and just look COOL. We added some windows and an awesome custom door to the exterior, which opens onto a little fenced in patio area. (A picnic table and BBQ grill are in his future.) Here are the first few in-process pics...more to come!
