My Big Project

This is Gizelle's new abode. I am so thrilled with it. I keep doing happy dances. It has enough room to store my hay and feed and tack too for one horse. I was very concerned about what I could afford and set myself a budget and have stuck to it fairly well and have a better barn that I ever dreamed of. I feel so blessed. :)

Gizelle is thrilled too. She has a bigger stall and paddock and its super clean . I used sand for the first time and so far it is working out really well. It was a bugger to use your power tools in though. I must thank my hubby Tim for all his help getting the project going to start as well as pitching in and working along side me. I also want to thank Niko, my contractor for all his work and suggestions. I love my red tin roof with its 3 foot overhang on all sides and the polycarbonate lets in so much light that I never need lights on during the day. It is still not completely finished but it is nice and dry and cozy inside.

This is the view from my house to the barn. Its a 10 second walk from my back door and I can gaze at Gizelle from my art studio and talk to her out the window too.

Here are a couple of shots that I played around with editing.

I love the ceiling and it is really high just like I wanted so bright and airy.

I used Mosaik for this one.
Happy December :)
