Our old 1789 barn gets a new foundation

Starting at some point in September we will have a company here to lift our antique barn and pour a finished basement.  We are really excited for this which might seem a bit odd, but we have always been short on storage space and the thought of a clean and open area is wonderful.  We will have a nice spot to put our canoes and kayaks in the winter and a nice home for our big tractor.  Finally we can move the majority of our catering equipment out of our housekeeping area in the basement below our commercial kitchen.  The contractor will be lifting the entire structure, straightening it and then pouring a foundation.  The entire barn will be elevated an additional 30 inches after the foundation is in.

We will post pictures as the project unfolds.
