Barn Demolition

Barn shed roof after many winters of snow
 Our barn, as you have probably seen, needs to be rebuilt. But the back shed (above) couldn't be saved and had to be demolished before somebody (or some kitty or chicken) was hurt if it collapsed. On Memorial Day, John hopped on the tractor and knocked it down. This isn't as easy as it sounds. John saves all of the materials, and to demolish the shed safely, he had to take it down in small sections. It sat on a frost broken concrete slab and that had to be broken with a sledge hammer and buried. Finally, the land had to be cleared and drained properly. It was nasty work but it's done. Now we are slowly demolishing the barn itself.

And down it comes!
