Goodbye, terra firma.
Having done as much as we could do from the ground, it was time to take the project to the next level. My parents came over for the labor day weekend and we spent almost an entire day getting scaffolding set up and braced for the task ahead. The top of the silo wall will be 21 feet off the ground, and once the roof is added it will be even taller than the barn. All of this looked really nice on the drafting table, but now the reality of what's required to build it starts to develop. Working on the scaffolding makes everything more difficult and SLOW. Fortunately we had two sets (thank you, Keith!) and my mom would be here to play 'gopher' and bring up supplies as needed.
