In 2011 one of my regular customers asked me to help build a new loafing shed for his dairy set up. The first phase of the project was for him to tear down an old limestone barn, dating from the 1800’s. Wish I would have taken a picture.
There is something about old limestone buildings that stirs something in me. I asked him what he was going to do with the old stone…long story short. He gave it to me. 13 dump truck loads worth. The only investment I had, was my time and the fuel it took to haul it home….
So this pile of limestone has been sitting there patiently waiting for me to do something with it…
That something has finally begun to stir…
We have a quiet spot out in the windbreak that looks north… In June, the wild black raspberries make an appearance.
One of my favorite places.
It is very easy to slough off the clamor when I’m out there.
I’m thinking I’ll just run a garden hose and a drop chord out there for some basic creature comforts…Murphy bed, barn beam interior, small loft. 16 ft by 20 ft tops/ with a small front porch like this….
I plan to do this on the cheap, using all recycled materials.
Want to help?
Think… Thoreau/ Walden/ tiny house…
