Building a Backyard Barn

About a month ago a friend who works at the Mercedes plant in Tuscaloosa Alabama got enough wood to build a small mansion.

The timbers are huge 5″x6″ and up to 16 feet in length! They were used to ship assembly line robots from Germany to the Mercedes plant.

He knew I needed to shop/shed at the new home in Atlanta, so he loaded up a bushel and brought it to me. What a friend!

Moments after Jerry arrives with the timbers we strapped on our beards(not pictured) and began hacking away.

Materials finally make a late arrival.
