Oh my word, this barn is looking so gooooooooo-oooood.
Who loves barn siding? Kim loves barn siding.
I do, I do, I do, I do, I do-ooooo. (That’s a Kenan and Kel throw-back.)
The board and batten siding is almost complete. The siding is a mixture of the original barn siding and some new lumber. It is not an easy job because with an old barn like this, every single piece of wood is a custom cut. And it’s hotter than blazes out there. It’s gotta be 15 degrees hotter on this hill than it is at our house 30 minutes away. It’s insanity.
But oh, it’s worth it.
To keep the feel of the original barn, we went with board and batten siding. We’ll stain it barn red as soon as our stain arrives. Is there any other appropriate color for a barn? The answer is no, according to my husband.
You may have noticed the windows and doors in the loft level. That’s our other big news. We’re actually converting the upstairs of the barn into an apartment for us to live in while we build our house! I’ll be sharing more pictures and info about this tomorrow, so stop back for the full 4-1-1.
