With the broken floor joist replaced, my attention turned to rebuilding the supporting wall that had previously rotted away and rebuilding or reinforcing the two end walls. As the barn was originally built the joist beam's longest unsupported span was twelve feet, however when the supporting wall had rotted away the beams then spanned nineteen feet, much too far to safely support the floor load normally associated with a working barn.
Nice to see the new strong supports. I'll bet the old gal is humming with happiness. The outside photo kind of looks like she's got a big smile.
That's a lot of lumber. The old barn is looking great.
Looks great. Love those old barns but they do tend to fall apart if no one takes care of them. You do good work.
It's so nice to see this beautiful old barn being brought back to life.
