I borrowed a friends tractor and had a great time grading our back half acre.
We smoothed out the pasture area and created a nice slope in the new barn area where we will be building this summer. Also, spent some time smoothing out the old garden to extend our grassy back lawn.
The new barn area will have a solid run of packed gravel base and pea gravel on top to keep the horses feet out of the mud this winter. We will also have a hay barn included so that we won’t have to drag the hay on dollys through the rain to the barn!
We are building 12 small structures to make our new barn. Each structure is under 200 ft.² and can stand alone.
I drew so many plans before I finally settled on one. The planning is so fun.
I kind of love projects.
