It's Coming To An End

Our work at Crumpie's is coming to an end.  We've been here for so long and it's such an awesome playground for us!
 The flooring guys have been here.  The first floor has been installed - oak flooring.  
 The 3rd floor landing is cherry and the 2nd floor is tiger maple.  The flooring guys just have a wee bit of work left on the 2nd floor and then it will be time for them to sand and apply the finish coats.  Mom and dad can't wait for that because the wood will come to life. 
 I'm sure going to miss playing ball here. 
I love tossing it down and waiting for it to be thrown back up to me and if mom and dad are too busy, I'll run up and down the stairs and amuse myself for hours!
Look out below!  Here it comes!
 It's such a comfy and warm and fun spot.

The raising for this barn was in July 2010.  I can't believe that one day very soon, we won't be able to come over here and play anymore.   It's really kind of sad.  I'm going to miss it a lot.
 We'll have to create new and fun games in our own workshop, Molly, while mom and dad timber frame and build another barn - one that will be raised in Maine in September.  

Many of you have asked what Mr Crumpie will do with his barn once we're all finished.      It will be his new clock shop!
We went to Lenny and Joe's for dindin last night and we had to make a stop along the way.
This is Crumpie's barn/clock shop in Madison.  Mom and dad and Gene built it in 1996.  Isn't it a cutie!  Notice that the hinges on the door are clock hands.  The cupola is a real working clock!
 Hey, Reilly and Denny.  Take a look at one of the clocks mom and dad saw inside the clock shop!  Isn't it just the coolest!
 We can't wait to see Mr Crumpie's fabulous antique clocks in "our" barn!

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

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

we wondered about the barn too - it is way to beautiful to be used as 'just' a barn and we are so happy to read it is going to be a clock shop - what a perfect use for it :)

Wow, that's really beautiful and a bit awe-inspiring that something like Mr. Crumpie's barn could be built by hand. Those buildings will outlast us. Incredibly beautiful work.

I can't believe it's almost done! That's incredible! The whole place is a work of art. I'll bet you'll miss being there a LOT.
I love the one your peeps built back in '96, too. What will happen to it? It's really gorgeous.
Play bows,

Too bad you couldn't go back and play after it becomes a clock shop. That would be fun.

And then will it be time to start another one? We are curious as to why each level has a different kind of wood - bet those floors will be gorgeous when they are sanded and stained.
