Deer Stand Improvments Part 3

Well, converting an old barn into "live-able" space can be tricky.  There are certain maintenance items that need to get taken care of.  Leaky holes in the tin ceiling, gaps in the boards on the walls, no gutters to keep rain off the windows, mice proofing, wiring, plumbing, and the list goes on and on.  Here are a few of the remedies.  May not be the most beautiful but it gets the job done!      

#1 Project:  Weather proofing

With the old siding, there were several inches in gaps that needed to be sealed up.  Solution was to stripe it.  Add more wood the existing to seal it up.  Here is what it turned out like.

There are always kids (and dogs) underfoot at the farm and wouldn't want it any other way.  Makes me smile when they create from what's laying around.  Kylie's showing off her shotgun shell vase with clover in it. 

#2 Project:  Window Awnings

Built from some metal left over from building the Ranch House (you'll be seeing posts on that soon) and awning supports from the old camper. 

#3 Project:  Lean-to

Sems like with any amount of space you have you always need more.  Here's the addition of a lean-to built on the back of the deer stand.   

Now that's what the lean-to was built for!  Of course...hanging deer out!
