Week two of our barn build was definitely less productive that the first. A big rain over the weekend means job number one is getting rid of the water that flowed into our future manure pit. Then, we’ll have to wait a couple more days for the area the barn will sit on to dry, so we can get another day of gravel trucks in.
Finally though, we get that nice dry day and the crew gets a pile more B gravel in as well as gets it all smoothed and packed. It feels good to have one good work day in the week!
Hoping for more productive days ahead and even more cooperative weather.
