Remodeling the Interior of the Barn – Week 1

We finally started the interior remodel project of our barn – with lots of help from Michael D. Hansen Building & Remodeling.  The goal is a small tasting room for the future winery, complete with bathroom, kitchenette and with access to the downstairs production area and upstairs storage room.  The area we are remodeling is a third of the upper barn, which is divided into three bays.  This section faces the pond and vineyard, where windows had already been installed last year, when the outside of the barn was redone with new boards and battons.

At the end of the first week, all the ceiling beams were set and the interior walls were studded in.  It takes a bit of imagination to see where this is going…. But we are so excited!
