Things kept coming along this week with insulation & steel going up on the south side of the roof. We also brought lunch up for our building crew and had a picnic with them and Dan's parents and the kids' cousins.
Thursday was a rain day but our amazing crew worked on Saturday! It's beginning to feel like a barn and real structure! Can you get a feel for it with the pictures? Remember you can click on the pictures to open them up bigger with captions.
The radiant floor heat loops were installed and then concrete was poured over them in the guest house and milk house spaces. Then it was polished up and big concrete "tiles" were cut out. The plan is to have the exposed concrete as the flooring in the guest house (and the milk house).
The concrete crew also poured the ramp into the manure storage area, we checked the robot out a little more, and Dan took a view from the current farm up to the progress. We also had cow waterers (where they drink from) and planters arrive this week!
Just a reminder to head to our Facebook page, click on the photo of us feeding calves and LIKE it to help us win! Plus, at the end of the month I'll be posting all of Dan's ice cream pictures.... have you have your July Ice Cream Month ice cream yet?
Growing up a city-girl, after marrying my dairy farmer husband and spending a few years abroad, we came home to expand the family dairy farm and want to share our journey & farm life with you!
