Barn Repair October 2023

Barn repairs continue, the photo above shows a fine ladder in a Peterborough area barn, only about one foot wide(one boot at a time). This barn needed some ground level post footings, but the 1880 upper framing is solid and will be for a long time to come. One of the best barns I’ve seen in Ontario, the owner had a copy of the original construction invoice – build and finish the barn for $44. Perhaps I can upload some more photos of the upper framing on our next visit.
