Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Pole barn got finished up early October.
On the 4th. of October we got to see a blimp fly over the homestead.
The 13th. of October the concrete has cured enough to support vehicles.
Started some work inside pole barn, while waiting on dumpster to clean up old barn.
Dumpster arrived, time to cleanup. This is first of three so far, will need a forth delivered.
Cleanup is going good.
September saw most work on pole barn getting done. Still waiting on electric service install. Preparations for pouring floor started on the 15th. with arrival of foam board insulation.
On the 27th. floor drain, Foam insulation, and pex tubing were installed.
Floor is ready for wire and concrete.
Came back the 28th. to finish floor.
September finally saw rain, in a day and a half we got 3.5 inches. On the 30th. more stone for driveway was delivered.
That’s it for September.
August was a very hot and humid month here. Pole barn got underway, still waiting on electric, garage door, and floor. The floor of the pole barn is going to have pex tubing in it for heat. First they will put down 2 inch foam insulation. Then either wire mesh or re-bar not sure which yet. Pex tubing will be fastened to mesh or re-bar. After that 5 inches of reinforced concrete will be poured. When they come and do it I’ll be putting up pictures.
The contractor did come and work on the driveway, and put stone base inside the barn.
I started to put insulation in barn to get ready for electric service to go in. The insulation I choose is a closed cell foam board 4′ x 8′ x 1 1/2″ with a R-value of 9.8 foil on both sides.
Got some time on the backhoe also. opened up and made bigger a drainage dig above the barn. So far I have about 3 hours total running a backhoe.
That’s all for August.
10 years ago today, was the day that I quit smoking.
