Ram-ada Inn update

I shouldn't take the time to post this, but I really wanted to show you the latest! Rick didn't have any calls scheduled this morning (an all-too-common occurrence in this economy), so he took advantage of a dry day to work on the Ram-ada Inn. He removed the temporary horse-panel-and-plywood side from the west side, got boards up on both sides, and reoriented the middle divider. I think it's going to be the nicest looking outbuilding on the place!(Gratuitous shot of a pretty Shetland head. :-)

That's it for now from . . .

Yes, there are roof vents but they aren't functional. The roofing was recycling from an roof, and the vents were glued on so firmly we decided to just leave them. The cedar boards are the free stuff we picked up a week or two ago in the rain, so the only materials we had to purchase were the four corner posts and some 2x4s for the rafters. My husband is a very handy guy when he makes time for projects like this; I'm keeping him here for Boulderneigh projects! Although, as slow as business is, maybe getting some rent for him isn't a bad idea....

Very nice! It would look great with my barn.

Beautiful work on the building, and I love how cedar ages.

Run-in sheds are just the best. And the cedar is beautiful!

What a great looking set up for your rams. Very handy indeed. I'm impressed with what was built using recycled materials.

Will the Ram-ada Inn have a pool? I'm sure it will have room service!!!

Way Cool Beans! yes, send Rick this way! :) It would be SO nice to be able to have a ramada without worrying about what to do with all the snow and below zero wind chill factor.
Maybe my DH will fall in love with OR/WA and retire in a couple of years????

Michelle said...

Wouldn't that be wonderful, Kathy?!?
