Everything Fits Just Right Then Beam Will Settled in Place
    New Beam for North West Corner
Many days there were only 4 -6 men working but they gave their all to see the barn standing again.  Led by Rick Helwig they learned to make beams from old beams and new beams to replace ones that were damaged.  Like a jigsaw puzzle they reassembled the walls on the ground so they were ready for this big day. 
There is more to come.
