Unraising - Day Two

All through the night the barn creaked and cracked.  It was definitely leaning more than the day before.  It soon became unsafe so the men decided to help it down.  Rick used a 1961 Allis Chalmers for the task
It stood firm, so Rick went to the other side
A push from the other side started the fall Down it came
Bill and Linda check out the damage
