The Man Cave is BUILT! I was really worried the green we chose for the siding was going to be hideous, but we couldn’t have a red barn because our house will not have red. I don’t like those putty barns, they just look plain! We wanted a sage green, not too dark but natural. Mueller’s only option was a green that had a little bit of blue in it. When you see these metal buildings in fields they look really blue-green and that was not the look I wanted!
Well I was so happy when we drove up the property and the barn did not scream “Look At Me – I am the big huge metal building!” When we have leaves on the trees I don’t think you will even notice the building! PERFECTION!
The view from farther up the driveway – put a few leaves on those trees and you won’t even notice the barn! They were still working on trim but almost done!
This side didn’t have the trim on yet – just like the binding on a quilt – the trim really dresses it up!
This side has the trim up – much nicer
2 overhead doors to provide lots of airflow during the hot summer –
Lots and lots of space – we were both surprised by how light it was in the barn. The white insulation really keeps it bright. In that corner we will build a “clean” room that can be air conditioned. Batting storage will be above that room.
Nice roll up doors – they are smooth!
The next projects: bringing in the electricity from the road and then adding the well. This well belongs to one of the neighbors. We will be placing our tank in the barn – so the only parts I will need to disguise are the well head (the piece on the left). I think planter boxes will work nicely!
We have met with the designer for the new house and made many decisions; I have homework I am working on prior to our next meeting….. stay tuned for all the fun!
