Slowly getting there.

Finished up some more hand cut cedar shakes on the peak of the garage to match the house.

We bought our farmhouse 5 years ago. The barn was built in 1890 and added onto in 1920. all post and beam construction. The original house that was built the same time as the barn is no longer here. When they did the addition to the barn in the 20s they moved the old house and lived in it while they built the house that we now live in.The projects are constant and we'll probably never be done but we enjoy doing it and love the old houses.

@Rob, Very Nice View and house.

it takes a lot of patience to maintain the old ones. but lot of character and accomplishment when/if you ever finish them. Of course, they are never finished. lol. :)
