Project 13c: The New Building-The Barn

Building the New Barn that will hold the Homer Jones Barn--The SIP Panels (Structurally Insulated Panels)

First, the men built a base platform, which would form the basement of the barn and hold the SIPS.

Then they framed out the basement rooms, while waiting for the farmhouse modular carpenters to catch up to the schedule.

Then the truck with the panels arrived.

And the skeleton of the panel walls began to rise, like a Manhattan skyline.

Framing the window spaces was especially important.

And the barn began to cuddle up to the farmhouse.

And the walls went up and up.....
