The shed is coming along. Slowly, and I will be glad when it is done. I am tired of being out in the cold and wind whenever we decide to work on it. Oh well, that is Kansas. This is the weekend of November 7, 8, and 9.
And of course there were distractions in between helping Hubby on the shed.
Patches wants to drive the ATV.
And I finally let the horses out onto the grass while we were working on the shed. They were so happy! Be sure to click on any pictures to get a better look at things.
Saturday November 15, we worked on the shed a little until it started to spit snow. It was supposed to accumulate some, but thankfully it didn’t more than about an inch. It was a good afternoon to sit and watch television instead of working on the shed.
The inside braces is what takes the longest. Lots of measuring, cutting fitting and nailing and screwing into place. Hubby wants it to be very strong. I do believe he has accomplished that. We did finally get most of the inside work done. We got the tar paper on the roof and north side of the shed. Unfortunately the calves found a loose piece on the north side and found it quite tasty. We did have to pull off some of the loose pieces in the hopes that they would leave it alone until we could get the tin siding on.
We have had some light rain and drizzle over this past three days of December 6, 7 and 8th, so the paper is sagging a bit. Hubby did finally get some metal siding on the north side so the calves will quit eating the tar paper. Hubby also got some more wafer board on the inside to cover the nails that came through the wall when the paper was nailed on. It will also help add another layer from the north winds.
We did finally get the calves separated Saturday December 6. There was a small amount of bawling by one or two of the cows, and one or two calves. Most of the calves were enjoying the bale of hay all to themselves. That is until darkness fell. There was quite a bit of bawling all through the night, and most of the day on Sunday. Today, Monday, was not as bad, and the cows began to move off back toward the pasture. They went through their bale of hay pretty quickly over the weekend and went in search of something else until we get another bale out for them.
One of the calves made quick work of using the shed.
When the shed is completely finished, I will finishing posting about it. If it gets done! 😀
Stay Safe and God Bless!
