Today starts a day of relaxation for not only Vicki and I, but Bill, Loraine and Andrew, our family from East Meadow, New York, on Long Island. All are sleeping in as their first form of relaxation from the daily grind of work and college life. Later today will bring……………… who knows what for each? I know Bill will definitely try the fishing…… Loraine will do some serious puzzling and Andrew will simply be Andrew and hopefully mend from the daily pounding he takes from playing college Lacrosse. Vicki and I don’t care what we do since we are not going to work on the barn. We finished the feed room yesterday and can now relax a little bit until we get to Lowe’s, somewhere, to pick up some cheap hinges so we can then install the ventilation flaps near the top of the roof on each side. Everything beyond that is icing on the cake and will be done as we find it, I’m sure. We do have to go to the Rensselaerville, see an art display by Susan Story, Stanley Maltzman’s daughter. We are very close friends with Stanley and had just recently met Susan at the Institute during Stanley’s last art showing during the winter. We finally had the privilege to meet her and her husband Doug, at a dinner party with Stanley and his friend Joyce, at Stanley’s house a few weeks ago.
Anyway, we are going to the art show and then the rest of the day is up to Bill, Loraine and Andrew.
Below are some pictures of the work we completed in the barn yesterday and a few of the dinner at Richie’s house last evening.
Here's where we started yesterday
We finished all the wall studing and was ready for plywood.
Here, all the plywood is completed. The feed room will remain dry and rodent proof.
This is how it looked when we were finished.
