North barn nearing completion

The north barn is finally nearing completion.  It has been a long haul, but finally the end is near. Currently, we are waiting for the shingles to be made and shipped to us.  The wood shingles will be fire retardant. Other things that still need to be completed, are glass in the windows, painting and installing a handicapped ramp which will happen in the spring. Enjoy the photos below.  The funding for the restoration of the barn is from the Minnesota Legacy fund.

To work on the other buildings, we need a Historic Structure Report.  The document is a comprehensive document that will tell us the how, why, and how much about what needs to be done on each building and will give us options as to how to use the buildings. More about this document will be forthcoming in the next couple of months.dsc03283dsc03262dsc03218
