It’s all coming together. Excavation began in October 2006, concrete work in November and framing in December, all in preparation for the barn move, which happened on February 8th and 9th, 2007!
The process has been fascinating, and you can see it all in the Ed Center scrapbook. Volunteers have put in almost 300 hours building ICF (insulated concrete form) walls, moving gravel and leveling the floor, laying out the floor heating tube, framing interior and exterior walls and cleaning up the barn - all under the guidance of architect Lee Schriever. In addition, contractors have been on site to level and pour the ICF walls, to pour the footings and the floor, to frame up the interior column supports, frame interior spaces, build out dormers, apply the exterior tin and install all the windows and doors.
Watching the barn move across the landscape was incredible. Don't miss out on the photos of the project in the Education Center Scrapbook and keep checking back to learn what happens next.
