The Barn is Finally Stained and Painted

Posted by: Rick

A little over a year ago, we had a preconstructed barn delivered to the cabin site. You can read about that adventure here. You can see from the photos in that old post that the barn was unstained and unpainted.

When we had the cabin restained this summer, we had the barn stained at the same time.

The barn. Stained but not painted, yet.

I'm happy to say that we have finally got the trim painted and now the barn is looking good!

The trim is now painted!

Another summer project complete.


Follow our adventures living in an off-the-grid cabin in remote Colorado. Kind of like reality TV on a blog!
