Barn Progress

The barn now has a roof and sides but no ends. 
 We picked green for the roof and white/grey for the sides.
 The gravel was spread in the shed yesterday.  J originally thought he wouldn't put gravel in the shed but the builders convinced him that once the dirt dried out it would be so powdery that it would get on everything.
 The inside is coming along.  It's not in the plans for the builders to do anything to the inside walls.  I'm still not sure how or if we will finish them.
 I chose a glass door for between  the riding area and the shop. Never know when you might have to check to make sure a horse isn't going by before you come out of the shop.  I'm not sure where to put the water spigot. I thought just outside the main door and maybe have a hitching post/wash area there.  It could also be handy to water the ring, but someone else suggested inside near the shop door.  I think that might get messy if there was a leaky hose or something.
We've got a lot of grass to plant now and maybe some kind of plantings on the bank.  This might be J's excuse to finally get a riding lawn mower.

Thanks for the update. Are those skylights down the center of the roof?

Looking good! Lots of decisions to make though.

That is going to be a gorgeous barn! I'm trying not to covet it, but it's pretty tough to do! The first thing I'd do is hold a big ole' barn dance to show it off to the friends and neighbors when it's complete. Looking forward to seeing pictures of the finished product.
