Getting along nicely !

We all had Friday off, however today we have cracked on with the barn extension.  All the sides have been cut out and put to one side, ready for replacing on the new extended out poles. 

This is the view today up on the roof, we have had another lovely sunny day, yesterday we managed to fix the purlings and put the cross beams onto the roof ready for fixing the sheets today.

This is my mam the other day, in the directors chair !  It is her Birthday today .... 21 again !
We celebrated in style with another day to remember..... what a way to spend your Birthday !

The roof is nearly finished.  I have only got a slight fall on this roof as I have made it as high as possible, in order that I can get in with the tractor...

What a way to spend the day..... sleeping in the sun, there's something going wrong somewhere, at least Norka managed to wake up for a brief moment.

Tonight the roof is fixed and finished.  Just in time for the weather to make a change for the worse. 
We are forecast horrible weather reaching us tomorrow night.....I'm hoping by then we will have most of the sides fixed in place, I reckon that the boys will be in tomorrow night.... checking out their new slightly larger accommodation !!

That barn is looking great, lucky alpacas! Hope you let your mum have a day off for her birthday and that she doesn't return home completely shattered! Well done all of you!

Happy Birthday to your Mom!
The barn looks great. I'm impressed. Is there anything you can't do? I don't think so!
