Or maybe that should be Under Construction – Still? Either way, work has begun to turn the gazebo Larry and Karla (previous owners of AAR) built with the help of their friends into a ranch store. We will be sorry not to have the gazebo anymore; we’ve had some great barbeques there and fun times with our friends and family. We must have a building to sell our grass fed beef though. Our customers were very patient with our “experimental” store last year which was really just a glorified storage shed, but we need to have a much better facility this summer.
So once again we are making good use of Roger and Melanie – our favorite neighbors – tractor which has a backhoe on it. Rick dug out the footings for the cement pad.
Grizzly thinks his job is to sit on any dirt pile that is available.
And then the lumber for the forms and framing was delivered and Molly joined him on the stack. It’s a tough job they’ve got.
Once the forms are completely set the guys will pour cement, and our ranch store is coming along.
