The east side had two large 10x10 foot doors. One was nailed shut prior to our taking possession of the farm. In addition, much of the bottom plate of the east portion of the building was rotting away. Yes, that is a *bad* thing.
Thanks to Steve J and Ryan D, the door came down. Steve and I got the frame in on the East and Jim F has been plugging away on fixing the framing and putting on new siding, etc. Denis D has gotten in on the painting as well. Lots of good work on it!
