Raising the Barn: Day 1 – green oak barn

Friday 16/4/21

Today we started by taking the tent down, then we took off the ridge and dismantled the trusses.

Before moving the righthand tie beam off the slab Ben marked out and cut the mortices for the door posts.

The door posts went in with no problem.

Next week should see the whole barn go up. On Monday we’re expecting delivery of one of these – a Genie lift – to help us with this task.
