So in order to same some $$$ and move the project along, Chris jackhammered the Asphalt slab in the Carport section of the barn. He has never jackhammered anything before. But how hard could it be right? Really hard. I actually tried it myself for like 1 minute. That thing is heavy, let alone the arm shaking, leaning it on your leg, sweating for no reason but apparently a big reason....
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.
