The garage doors and slab will likely wait until summer as the winter plow season was good but it wasn't that good! The doors will come first and the interior will remain gravel until fall as I want it to settle.
The wood skirt boards will remain in place as they are making up the difference in exterior to interior grade. These barns are built with 2 rows of tongue and groove 2x8 skirt boards but due to the difference in my grade the front of the building ends up sitting up about 18 inches more than the back. So before I pour a slab I will need to build up the front interior portion as well as the transition to the opening. My long-term plan will be to add the same stone that is on the house foundation and cover the boards......when funds permit.
For now we have covered parking for all of the toys and equipment and the MC will be coming home as soon as the weather improves and we start the season.
