Barn Week - Day 5!

This week we've been going on a journey through our barn building process.
An old fashion Barn Raising, if you will.
If you haven't seen each day, please click the big banner at the top of this page to see all of them!

I tried to stand near the same spot every day and take a photo of the progress.
Some days didn't show much visible outside progress because work was being done indoors.
In the coming weeks, I'll share the inside with you. (bathrooms! Kitchen! Hayloft! oh my...)
There is still so much more to share!

Now I have a confession: When I started this Barn Week, I was positive that I'd have a "final photo" to show you today.
And things didn't go according to plan. (if you've ever built a home or anything, you know that things never go according to plan!)
So the final photos aren't quite ready yet!

I'll share them next week.
Several people have emailed questions.
Do you have any questions?
I'll try to answer those next week too.

I love it! Were you able to use any of the old wood from the old barn? I still remember when my in-laws barn finally fell apart. So sad to tear it down! They didn't have the money to rebuild it at the time and the farm never looked the same without that old barn!

Gorgeous! Can't wait to see it complete. Congrats on the beautiful addition. Wish I could come for the barn sale and see it in person!

My question about restoring the barn has been answered and it is gorgeous!!! Barn week has been fun (except now I want a barn, badly)!

That is one sexy barn! So, kitchen and bathrooms, huh? Is this going to be guest quarters? Will there really be hay in the hay loft? We have thought about making a guest apartment out of the top room ("hayloft") in our "barn" (which is really a garage that looks like a barn), but that plan is on the back burner for now. I can't wait to see more details!

I am in l♥ve with this beauty! I have to admit, when I saw the photo of the old barn coming down my heart sank. I love those old buildings, but I could see it just couldn't be saved. You have replaced it with a beauty, built in the spirit of the old barns but new and usable! My question is, did you work with any particular company to get this barn built?
