It’s Thursday, I’m back to share some excitement with you.
There hasn’t been the danger of collaps here although our barn looks rather weak at some points. My husband and I weren’t too scared about it when the carpenters (Bänninger & Son) showed us the problem zones with a frown the other day.
However, it must be said that I want the barn fixed befor the first snowstorm because I don’t like to think of me pulled out of bed in the middle of the night due to a strong wind tearing down the barn and the house. You have to know that there is only a quite thin wooden wall between bedroom and barn.
They’ve finally arrived with heavy logs and beams and a lot of ideas. There are sawdust everywhere and – in the middle of the excitement – three carptenters, Ueli and Peter Bänninger and Peter Giger, working. What’s more, I can watch them doing their impressive work. I’m a huge fan of this trade.
