Cow Shed

We have a couple of old sheds on our property. We weren’t sure what to call them - barn, shed, lean-to? One of them, we thought, would be worth repairing. It is more of a small pole barn, but we call it the cow shed. Even though we don't have any cows yet, we're hopeful. 

So we enlisted the help of a friend and handyman and he’s been working diligently on his own for the past couple of weeks. It wasn’t square or level, and some panels on the roof were missing. We’re not sure what we’ll use it for, but it’s a solid shed now. The only thing left to repair (or replace) is the rusty pipe fencing around it.
