Barn totally enclosed!

Still need to cut out one window. Interior dividing half walls missing. Need to add rubber stall mats to the floor and of course some paint would be good.

And it has a roof!

 Tom and Tad have made this project much easier on me.
 We got the roof on and tar papered yesterday. Still need to shingle.
 It will be nice to move some of the does out of these metal huts! The two horned girls who don't play nice with other goats will have their own stalls. Mini Mel will be with her daughters Firefly and Junebug. Brigette will have her personal stall next to them. There will be a sturdy half wall between with walk through gates. This is in the lower lowest level. The two upper levels will be connected for all the does and kids that currently live in Arlo's Pad.
Hope to enclose the walls and hang doors on Monday.

Goat inspection tour

So far the new barn meets the requirements.

Busy summer

Been working outside instead of on the computer most of the summer. Trying to get the new goat barn built so one of the others can be turned into a real milking parlor. Since we live on a hillside, building is always a challenge. The optical illusion of what is straight is amazing - yes we are using a level. Here's how the barn is progressing.

Hoping to have it liveable by the end of next week.
