As with all renovation projects, this project began with demolition and clean-up. My goal was to keep as much of the original barn as possible, doing only a limited renovation. The photos below were taken over the course of a few evenings. Keeping up with other chores about the farm and holding full time employment limited my work to evening and a few Saturdays.
Demolition began with the removal of the mangers.
