Haha Bee, we already have the bent corner trim, courtesy of our neighbor Robert, and it was free to him. It is a dark green, should look good with the old tin, huh? We are going to trim around the doors with it, everywhere else, the ends are where the horses can't get to them.
Somehow I KNEW you'd already be on top of that! :D

Ah, now Bay, i feel like I ought to get out and finish the coop we've been working on all month!!:D
Best cure for laziness I know of is to come here and see what everyone else has been doing! I'll be looking forward to the finished project. Your tack room looks great, and I know you'll have another project as soon as this one is ended... Which means I better get off my tail and get to work!:lol:

Got more done today! At one end, next to a pole, there was nowhere to screw the tin down.



So I made a L with a 2x4 and a 2x6 and screwed the 2x4 to the wall stud.



Prince tried sneaking back in.



I had a flange to screw the tin to.



We cut tin and put it up, 4’ pieces from the pole and flange to the door opening. Later while holding up my end of an eleven foot long piece of tin, I was standing up high on a ladder. I looked down.....my helper was back! LOL



We got a run of tin above the doors, there was a lot of cutting in and trimming. That took time. More coming tomorrow!

Today we got one piece of tin hung. One. It went to the rafters and had a lot of cutting, weaving between poles and braces. We had to beat it in. DH beat one end with a 2x4 and a hammer. It got mangled, but that sheet of tin finally went where we wanted it to go! Then I cut the mangled end off. We quit. We have one more piece to go up. Then do trim and build doors.

Today was Prince’s day off. Joe was on Snoopervisor duty.

Yesterday we got the last piece of tin up. DH and I were working in the garden when Robert came over. We dropped what we were doing and went to the barn. Now we have to trim out the doors, build and hang doors, get it wired, spray in insulation, wall it up and load it up with Feed and tack.

I know y’all will be glad to know that Prince was on duty in his position of Snoopervisor. LOL
