We have a variety of barns to suit many needs.
When we moved here 24 years ago, the only thing here was the house.
Since that time, we have added on to the house and built all the barns.
Barb's brother, Bill (we call him Billy) is a master carpenter and the
force behind our beautiful buildings and fencing. We designed what
we wanted, Billy engineered them and did the actual construction with
help from John, while Barb has done all the painting and most of the
ongoing maintenance here. We are very proud of our
facilities, and each day we wake up pinching ourselves, feeling blessed
to live such a wonderful life in our own little paradise.
Barb has finished repainting all our buildings, giving each a
"facelift," with brand new colors. The fence-painting has
been finished--and it's time to touch it up again already!
Our Big Barn
36' x 28', originally had five 10'x12' stalls with adjoining
Loft for storage, Feed/hay room
and Bathroom (under construction). We have since
converted two stalls into one large stall on the west side
with capability to split the stall with slide-in boards when
needed. Two other stalls have been converted to
storage rooms. The cattle love to come inside when
it's cold outside!
Our Front 3-Stall Barn
Has three 6'x8' stalls with one large adjoining
paddock that is split with portable panels when needed.
Our L-Shaped Barn
Has five 6'x6' stalls and community
Our Back 3-Stall Barn
Had three 6'x8' stalls with adjoining
and separate run-in, but now has been modified--two stalls
have been removed to make a nice run-in area.
Our Tractor Barn
This 30' x 22' multi-purpose building used
to house the trailer, tractor and mower. Now
it's a catch-all for "whatever" since we sold the tractor and trailer.
We have three main pastures, along with several
