It was hot up on that barn roof today, Ryan nearly melted, but just look! We have a skookum new roof vent.

Since the second year we bought our winter’s hay in June, the loft door has been tied open year round. With only two 1-foot square vents high in the south wall, a closed loft door meant moldy hay by February.

Yes, we could have installed more wall vents but since having the door open solved the problem we spent our time elsewhere. There is no end of things to do when you live on a farm, even a tiny one. That’s one of the things I like about this lifestyle,  there is never ‘nothing to do’. And it is going to be SO NICE to be able to close that door.
