In our not so spare time, we like to piddle with building things. We have built chicken coops, pig huts, brooders, feeders, and all kinds of other farm things. When we moved here, it was decided by the family we would always do our big holidays here, because this is home. I welcomed the idea!! I even made the den, into the dining room, which can accomidate and 10 plus foot table. Instead of just going and buying one, we decided to build one. And that's how it all started. We can only squeeze in a few pieces here and there because of all the other things we have to accomplish, but we do enjoy it. It's always a challenge taking a 50 year old piece of wood and shaping it into something. We have disassembled several barns, and dug through several piles to find unique and one of a kind pieces to create with.
