Redwood Slab Siding – Horse Stall

Improvements are slowly being made to different areas of the farm, depending on what materials we find/recycle and the timing of the project.

When we first moved in, the horse stall was just a shell of a structure.  Improvements were made to the inside in order to be safe for horses and goats.  dscn1577-1

A few months ago, our friends Julianne and Danae were redoing the siding on their vintage, 1950s garage.  We came and got the redwood slab siding, knowing that we’d be able to use it on one side of the horse stall.


With the planning of this redo, I answered an ad/request by a couple who were looking for metal for an art project.  They were willing to remove the metal, it was a win-win situation.

Last week, Rich was able to spend 7.5 hours putting up the redwood bark. He meticulously removed every nail and trimmed down each side for a seamless fit. It looks amazing.   Now, we are on the search for more pieces to do the other side.


Next Friday, Rich is returning to fix the slope of the metal roof so it won’t leak anymore, and hopefully we’ll be able to remove the tarp on the roof.  I love to see the changes and improvements!!!
