We had a full day of excavator work done by Dave Pulcini and just wish that nephew Dylan could have been here to watch it all. He would have loved it!
The project was to clear all the sod and vegetation away from the foundations of both barns.
We are uncovering the base boards to determine how many and what percent need to be replaced. There is some deterioration in spots with rot and rust evident.
The back of the barn at the entrances to the horse stalls was similarly cleaned and scraped level. Dave was very skilled, and it was a pleasure to watch him work.
The west end of the horse barn was clogged with old volunteer trees and heavy vines featuring the rope-like wild grape (terrible stuff!). The material was piled away from the structure -- with its final destination to be determined.
