It's Time Again...

for more parlor updates. (Yep, Anne, big milking facility.  Instead of bringing the milkers to the cows, we'll  they'll bring the cows to the milkers.)

Foundation for the milk tank.

I have no idea.

Drains for water run-off.

First pour in the walk-way.

I thought maybe this was a hitching post...but it's just a spot to wash cows.  Notice the faucet and drain?

Hey, hey, hey, check out all the technology.

The painting is done...well, except for all the touch-ups and clean up that will need to be done in the wake of the "professional" painters.

Jonas working in the basement.

Scott at work, too.

That big hole is where the tank will go in.  Too bad it will be the first thing you see as you pull into the farm lane.

Okay, temporarily you're all up-to-date.


  1. Looks good! I'm currently read a poem to my kids called Farming with Father. About a dairy farming Mennonite family. They enjoy hearing about all the chores that has to be done in the barn and with the cows. Maybe we'll make a field trip up to see you when your barn is working?

  2. That would be great! We'd love to have you. :D
