Our Barn Doors are More Open!
This week’s project was replacing the ugly aluminum garage door with French Doors, acquired from (where else?) Craigslist. Rog uninstalled the old overhead garage door and cut the opening slightly larger to fit. But we hired a professional, Sam, to build the doorframe and hang the doors.

I primed and painted the outside of the doors to match the barn trim and withstand the weather.
Don’t they look pretty?!

With the wall of windows on the south side and the French doors at the east end, this part of the barn has great vistas and lovely light.
In September 2008, we dived into our dream of creating a small, sustainable farm. Neither of us has previous farming experience, but we have enthusiasm and many ideas for this little 10-acre farmstead.
