Barn raising

They say it takes a village to raise a barn...


Apparently it only takes 3 guys and one fiesty lady to side one though... guess who learned how to install pine plank siding in Vermont this weekend? This chicka right here!!

Although the rain tried to beat us down, we wouldn't let it stop us! I learned I'm really accurate with a miter saw, and with some practice I'm deadly with a hammer. (please ignore the first few pieces with dents next to the nail... whoops)

Other exciting things from the weekend involved loads of delicious food, hikes, a hot sauna, (some took dips in the pond - I took a pass on that one ewww pond gunk...) and this little friend I made right here...


Isn't he cute??

So now that I have these new siding skills... who wants to come over to my house and help me reside the whole darn thing!??
