No Stalling

Category: Barn Conversion Journal May 6th, 2007 by mbc

The old cow or chicken shed that is to be our new kitchen was furnished with three wood framed loose-boxes. They made it difficult to gauge the levels of light that we’d enjoy in that the darkest, north facing part of the barn and still retained the sweet odour of chickens, the most recent inhabitants. Today, crow bar in hand and father in assistance they came out. Thankfully it was a pretty straight-forward job as they been built very well and whilst solid, were not held in place by an excess of nails, screws and assorted fixings (which may have been used if installed by the same people who removed them!).

It’s certainly nice to get a feel for the space and light and as a bonus, the Old Man Steptoe in me managed to come away with some fine examples of timber salvage. A rather nice geometrically topped post from a school, chapel or similar and some fine old & no-so-old oak beams that we can recycle in cladding the currently open-sided ‘garage’.

Next stop in my trail of destruction the floors….
