|Barn Doors are Up!|

There are now two sets of these doors in the geriatric barn on both sides of the barn.
|Barn Gutters Revisited|
Thank you everyone who donated to the Help Us Get Ready for the Winter campaign. We are short funds to complete all the projects especially after recently realizing the full extent of the barn gutter improvement. Winter is not here yet and we still have time to get ready for it!
The present gutter is too small to support the amount of water that comes off the large barn roof (75' by 185') due to rain and snow. We had previously thought that we just had to repair it but after consultation and closer observation the conclusion is that the present gutter pipe needs to be replaced mainly because it is not wide enough to catch the amount of water that comes off the roof. The goal is that the rain water and melting snow that previously flooded areas of the barn and was deteriorating some of the beams and roofing materials will be more efficiently directed away from the barn by replacing the present gutter with a larger one of commercial quality.
Old gutters last winter. When the snow melted the gutters could not hold all the water and it flooded the front part of the barn.
The Alcoa commercial 6 inch gutters will cost $887.37
The pressure treated wood support system for the gutters will cost $374.40
The labor will cost approximately $600.
