Diverting Rain Water from Barn Roof

The final phase of diverting the rain water off the barn roof is finally complete.  Jens, Jeff and Lars worked on this most of Saturday and Sunday.  They finished digging the drainage ditch, laid the perforated pipes, dug a hole which they filled with gravel, and then covered everything up.  The ground was still soft enough to work this late in December – lucky for us.  Still needs to get some “finish work” done, to smooth it all out.  We’ll plant grass on most of it, but decided to make a gravel drive-way from the road to the barn … to avoid future mud pits 🙂
