The Barn

Monday, October 27th, 2008

Last week Lee and I and Paul Larsen went to Gunnison and loaded up the stone and took it to the Manti quarry fro splitting. State Stone owns the quarry and has a hydraulic stone splitter. We are hiring State Stone to split all of the stone to 4″ thickness for Lee’s new studio/barn and for a future house.
Paul and Lee with State Stone’s guilotine.
Luis is the opperator. The guilotine generates 250 tons pressure.
Gerrardo takes the split stone from the press and Lee stacks it on pallets.
Bud Snedocor moved to Montreal and left me his dump truck to baby sit. Since it was made in 1969 I named it Wood stock. Here she is all loaded with split stone.
Joe the mason tooling the split stone to be laid up on Lee’s studio/barn.
Here is the barn so far. The down stairs will be hay storage and horse stalls on the west (right) and printmaking on the east. The whole upstairs will be a painting studio. It will be way nice for Lee. The east end of the barn is a log structure. The west will be sided with rough cut pine boards.
