When Alex is outside, one of his favorite places to safely hang out is in an old corn crib barn next to the horse barn. It's dark, it's cool, it's a cat's dream spot.
We starting tearing it down today.
It's a shame but the people who owned our place before us weren't very good stewards of the out buildings and this old pegged barn was neglected to uselessness. It is an amazing piece of old world construction - probably more than a 100 years old - but it is also ugly, useless and getting dangerous.
A new barn will go up where the corn crib stands now. Construction starts week after next. It will house our horse trailer, our tractor and have a new tack room in it. We really need this barn and have decided to take on the debt and get it done.
Poor Alex won't be able to hang out and hide in this barn as it will not be open and easily accessible like the old corn crib. Maybe we'll add a cat door to it so the boy can get in if he desires. Something to thing about.
Sadly, nothing is forever.
