Hubby seems to always be repairing something on the farm. Recently he’s been working on fences, hauling more limbs out of the fields from the winter winds and last years durachio. We have lots of repairs to buildings to be completed due to time and lack of repairs before we inherited the farm. Some buildings were beyond repair and have been torn down and cleaned up. This week he started on the corn crib at the mansion.
The winds wreaked havoc on the roof of this building and some of that will be replaced in the coming weeks and some will be pulled down and screwed down to prevent further wind damage. The front of the crib is in fairly good shape but this end needs new support at the bottom which you can tell has sunk.
This side of the crib has an addition on it for storing equipment and is in really bad shape. First we have to get the old bulldozer out of it and take it to the scrap yard and then we’ll begin the work of repairing the side of the building. We’ll us it for storing the lawnmowers, tiller, and other small equipment in the winter months. The other side of the building holds the backhoe and is in good shape. It doesn’t suffer the west winds and rain like the side you see above.
Here’s some of the fencing that has been completed by Hubby and our daughter in the last few weeks since it’s warmed up.
There’s always something to do on the farm and never any time to be bored!!
