A Facelift for the Sheep Barn

This late winter/early spring ATC is working on replacing the siding on the smaller barn, called the Sheep Barn, at the KCC.  This is good timing for this project as it is occurring after the harshest part of winter has passed but before the onslaught of summer and all the busy-ness that time brings.

The sheep barn is a late 1700's timber frame structure that has had some work done to it to help preserve it over the past few years.  Despite those efforts, once the old siding was being removed it was discovered that there are some pretty serious issues with the sills on the south side of the building.  We will try to stabilize those as time and resources permit, but we will likely have to revisit these issues later with a more focused effort.  Below are some pictures of the progress thus far.  I will keep adding photos as we go along.
