The winter of 2006/2007 started out pretty mild. So much so that the boys and I were able to work on the barn most every weekend. We thought we had taken photos of the progress but now can't find them. We completed the stairs to the second floor, installed the decking over the basement, intalled a bunch of lights and completed the bracing of the trusses.
I bought a John Deere skid steer loader which came in very handy later in the year.
In March, winter arrived but by the end of March, the crocus were up. Winter returned on April 14th. I got to use the skid steer to move snow.
You can see that I had scaffolding set up to install the front windows in the addition. We did though get the windows installed in late April.
