Another Barn Update

 Remember this plywood ramp.   This is before the Crump barn frame went up.
Vincent, the mason, has been hard at work!

You're really impressed, right?!
We were back over there earlier this week after the red powder had been swept off! 

TADA!
It's looks like brownstone! It's not red at all!
And Vincent built a small set of steps if you'd rather take the stairs then walk the ramp! 
And he stone-faced the ramp!
We need to get some green grass to grow!
The entrance door is up!  Dad has been working on the thumb latch and installing the lock.
Let me in, Mitch!
BTW, those red hinges are only temporary. 
The guys who install the insulation are here.

They are spraying on the insulation and it's green!   Dad says that more insulation goes on top of the green.  We didn't get a picture of  the workers all dressed up in their gear but they are covered up from head to toe and they look kinda scary!
The beams are all covered with plastic so they don't turn green too!

 We've been hanging out and doing a lot of supervising.
Dad started a nice fire in the fireplace for us.  The brownstone hearth is in place.  
Those are George Washington andirons!
And we got a treat!  Supervising is very hard work, ya know!
We have been doing major clean-up all this week because the Halloween pawty is today!  Mom says there will be tons of food and drink and over 100 hoomans and even live music! 
It's not looking too good for us to get an invitation so we're hoping for a nice big doggie bag!

So until next time.............

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

OMD! The Crump barn is nicer than a lot of homes! We hope you get a nice doggie bag from the pawty! We think 100 peeps might cause one of you to get stepped on...or you might get waaaaay too many treats! I'm sure YOU wouldn't object to that, but your mom and dad might! We hope everyone has a great time!

Maggie, there's a HUGE spider on you, in your header picture! Just wanted you to know 'cause I, Patches, would FREAK OUT! (Mom says it takes much less than a spider to freak me out. I'm a drama queen.)

Have a great weekend!

That is most handsome! And we think that since you have been working so hard at supervising and stuff, the very least you can get is a goodie bag.

Happy Halloween!
In Germany the Halloween tradition is not spread yet so.
In the towns it becomes from year to year more.
But here on the village, there are still no Spukys which ring in the front door.

I am always glad about News of the barn. She is wonderful. The fireplace is a splendour.
Lots of love
