The new barn - summer 2012

Much as I love my polytunnel and it has the advantage of being good value space, it is not secure for storing anything of any value and also not great for storing anything that needs to be kept cool. Therefore, we had always planned to build a barn as well; and now its beginning to take shape.  This will provide us with storage, garage for a future mini-tractor purchase and a loo and office space.  My husband also tells me its his new home so he can be nearer his sheep (and further from me?) which will be especially useful at lambing time.

We hope it will be completed by the end of this month but the rain keeps adding to the timeline.
