Very inspirational build. I've been in construction for the better part of 40 years, but have learned a lot from reading your thread here.

Congratulation on your upcoming anniversary!

Congrats on your anniversary. My wife and I are half way there. You guys are truly an inspiration. The build is off the hook as they say now-a-days. Stay focused and be careful

Lin and Dave,

Congrats on the 50th milestone. Tom and I are also 2 months apart in age, with me being the eldest by 2 months. We celebrated 35 years in May (we've known each other for 43 years).

What you have undertaken is amazing. I hope you get a break again in the weather, but, if it doesn't happen, then there's always Spring. Keep safe. And have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Chris

Congrats on the 50th.

Nicola's mum and dad had theirs earlier this year too.

I hope that we will get to big numbers one day too.

Lin and Dave, Happy 50th anniversary and happy belated 71st birthday. Hope you have some good weather in the next couple months so you can get that roof finished. That way you'll have it made in the shade next spring and summer.
Please be safe and take care. Believe me I know the aches and pains such work can create on us older folk. I only turned 60 last month and am realizing I have to slow down and contemplate each and every step and move before making it when doing such work. Use to, my mind couldn't keep up with my body, these days my body doesn't want to keep up with my mind.

One good thing, you can celebrate the anniversary same time as T'givin and won't have to loose another weekend for that.

Rita and I will be thinking of you. God Bless

Every so many years the anniversary will come on the same day as Thanksgiving, however this year it falls the same as it did in 1976. Which marks today as the exact anniversary ( 34 years ago ) that I was put into ICU with a heart attack. So Lin spent that one by the bedside.
Lots of Thanks since then.

We really appreciate all the kind words from you all.

Enjoy

Lin and Dave

I am completely amazed by the work you have done. And with perfection. When I was younger, I spent many hours with my Grandfather who was a self employed cabinet maker. I learned so much from being his helper in the shop. When he passed away, I was 28 years old. Felt like I had lost my best teacher. Following this thread has made me realize how much I miss his wise influence. It's been 21 years that he's been gone. Everyone needs a oldtimer (I say this with complete respect) to learn proper work ethic and pure craftsmanship. Dave and Lynn, you are truly a fine example of what Americans need to have in today's word. A great influence and teacher of how to do things the correct way.

Happy Holidays to you folks!

Happy Anniversary / Birthday / Thanksgiving .......

Simply amazing. Well done, quality craftsmanship.

I just read the entire thread and couldn't find one piece of information. What are the dimensions of the barn?
