“Have Reconstructive Surgery” …check!

WE’RE BACK AND PRETTIER THAN EVER
AFTER RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY UPSTAIRS AT THE BARN

Here’s where we started.
Everything looked fine, right? before-work-started

NOT SO FAST…

One day a couple months ago, friend and contractor, Mike McCarthy, just happened to notice that the addition on the Barn seemed to be pulling away.  Upon further inspection he found that the addition and in particular, the roof, needed some major reconstructive “surgery” or it very well could cave in.  WHAT?  Well, that was something we couldn’t ignore so we closed the back two rooms upstairs off.

To the rescue came carpenter and Mister Do-It-All, Bob Williams.  He and Mike figured out how to, literally, pull the whole thing together but they said it would take 5 weeks!!  REALLY? I have to admit I was a little freaked out.  Where will we put everything?  How can customers see floor models when they’re not on our floors?  Will they really finish in 5 weeks?

After everything was completely cleared out the work started.  First the old ceiling had to go.

We repainted the room in a new Farrow & Ball color…Purbeck Stone.  Isn’t it great? 
Love Tim Jones’ iron ties in the new ceiling. Everything is done in this photo except the new track lighting.
