To Save or Not to Save

Starry Night Barn Under ConstructionWe’ve had to make a lot of decisions during this process of restoring and renovating our old barn.  I have a hard time getting rid of anything that is a part of this barn’s history, but I didn’t think twice when it came to eliminating the black tar paint that covered the south bottom bay beams and joists – an old way of preserving the wood.  It was filthy work but we corncob blasted as much of the tar as we could and now the bottom bay, which will become the swanky bar/lounge, has new light and life with restored beams and joists.  Now on to the much needed foundation work, with rebuilt stacked stone walls and tuck pointing.
