Well, a few weeks ago we tore down the original floor in the old stall we’ve designated to be a chicken coop. Years of neglect (and poor building material choices) had left us with a rotted floor, so it had to be replaced. THANKFULLY, Megan’s father John is a well experienced builder, so he lent us his expertise, which made the construction go so, so much easier and faster than if the two of us were learning on our own!
We started with the dirt floor, very soggy due to poor drainange around the barn — that’s a whole OTHER issue on the task list.
You can see what years of standing in water has done to the non-pressure-treated posts. Thankfully we determined that this is only every other support post, so the whole barn is probably more or less still stable.
