New Barn

I know I haven’t blogged in forever…. more about that in a different post.

For now, I wanted to share photos of our new barn as it was being built.   We have had several requests for photos from people who are considering using our contractor, and this seems like an easy place to direct them to photos.  Our contractor was Hostetler Construction from Cochranton, PA.  We highly recommend them.  They do quality work with quality materials.  They construct Borkholder Buildings, pole construction barns, ag buildings,etc.  I love that they come when they say they will, and have a strong work ethic.  They put up our barn during the coldest, windiest, snowy December week of 2013.

 

The barn components were delivered.

The Borkholder emblem.  Lots of our clients have asked what quilt block that is!  We hope to get a big quilt block up sometime, but probably on the gable end of our quilt studio, not on the barn.

All done!

    Well YAY! SO nice to see you back on the blog! I love the barn, the pictures were wonderful. It’s a great color, too, I’m kind of a traditionalist that way.
    I haven’t blogged in ages, life hit a tailspin and I’m digging my way back up to the surface. Hope all is well!

      Thanks Joan. We are traditionalists too. Your description of tailspin and digging way back pretty much says it perfectly here too! All is well, just don’t make time to blog.
