Barn Timbers

You won’t see wood like this any more.

Dylan and I sorted these barn timbers today, raising them off the ground, and covering them with tarp.

Over 100 years old. The supports for the old barn. Large wooden pegs in some of them. Various hefty sizes: 6″ x 8″, 8″ x 8″, 10″ x 10″, a couple almost 12″ x 12″ and 30′ feet long. Will use them (I hope) to build the frame of a very solid livestock shed and more (maybe a little cabin or shrine) in the woods next year. Too good not to use.

Slipped away from increasingly stressful, disordered, random, and violent urban life after 4 decades to live in peace and attempt to steward a small farm that eventually helps pay the bills.
