Our super awesome and patient contractor AJD Builders started the Barn a week or two early. We thought after Labor Day but we got lucky!
Apparently the barn was 6" off level so they had to jack it up. I mean the building is over a 100 years old so give it a break. We should allow it some imperfections.
Then giant thick support beams were put in there to hold up the 2nd floor loft. More Demo, Some support posts and lots of explaining.
