the barn is up, roof and all. cathy or i will get over there to snap some shots today (i hope!) according to jack, our contractor, it's huge, and gorgeous.
i also found a cool new door system for our 16 foot opening off of the living room, which might mean there are 16 feet of brand new andersen custom sliders ready for the trash or craig's list. i am waiting to hear whether i will get anything back from my window dealer if it's too late to cancel.
