The two little kids and my husband and I moved about a quarter of the old wood material that we will be using for our ceiling. It was hot, 100 degrees, and we were all sweating. But it really was a nice feeling working with that old barn wood. Knowing I will be looking at it for so many years to come. The two kiddos were working as hard as they could. It was pretty sweet. They too are looking forward to more space.
The wood was sent through a planer once. I wanted to keep as much white as possible. I think it will really work against those wood beams.
I am looking forward to the start of this project. :).
