Finishing Touches ....

 
 
We have had a lovely day today.  Time to complete the finishing touches ... and what a relief  !

 
We made and hung the door on Saturday.  Today it was time to trim the top and secure a good strong bolt to hold it tight during those winter gales !!  We have been busy concreting the extra posts in place, putting the fascia board on the outside.  This has taken most of the day.  We are very relieved  to get this job finished.

 
Ruby had a load of gravel on to make up the concrete.  We also had a few little furry helpers....on the job. You can just see the alpaca boys out grazing in the distance.

 
Me and my barn .... just taking in all the photo shot... we have built all of this over time.  The hay bales are in the farthest section of the wooden barn.... when you stand back and have a look at the whole size of the barn .... its really quite massive !!
 
It will make the winter much more enjoyable here ... I'm sure.
 
I am very grateful for all the help from my mam and dad, to get this job done. I'm chuffed with the finished  result.

That's a fantastic job Jayne - great to go into autumn having prepared your shelters for the ever-changing herd - and I know you'll find it more comfortable for you to carry out all the chores too!
