Rite of Passage—Pole Barn!

This morning I had a blog topic ready in my head and I had just sat down to blog when this happened:

Have I told you recently how excited I am to get our pole barn? OK… so yes I have, but REALLY I am!  When I think about a space for our tractor, seedlings, pots, trailer, rakes, hoes, and on and on I get so thrilled.

A couple of years ago I would have never, ever thought of this.  I mean in a subdivision you don’t exactly build a 30×44 structure for outdoor equipment.  But when you get 5+ acres and you have some dreams (both big and small) you got to have a place to store stuff and work in to make all these dreams come true.

So I left my computer and my blog idea and snapped some shots for memories sake:

So they are now ours and waiting for other pieces parts and the construction crew from a nearby Amish village.  They are truly just the nicest people to have been dealing with!

The best shot of the day though is what will don the cupola:

This represents one of my big dreams here—chickens and hens and eggs oh my!  So this will keep that vision in front of me while we continue talking forwards steps in fulfilling our dreams.

Next week…. probably more pole barn shots. 🙂  It is after all a right of passage for me in unleashing my inner farmgirl!
