Been a whirlwind of activity... mostly in the barn. As mentioned, the chickens have been giving us eggs (note the photo evidence below of the first 2 collected). Typically 2-4/day. We have realized we have a couple rodents in the barn that need to be evicted/exterminated and we MAY be losing eggs to them. Have to see after the eviction.

The bar/tavern/pub/dancehall/whatever you want to call it is looking amazing!! The floor is finished (added a 2nd layer of plywood so it's VERY solid), the railings were completed a couple weeks ago at a "work party" we had with a bunch of our wonderful friends coming out to help. The bar is up with a plywood top. no fronting yet but solid and functional. The furniture we picked up at the auction last week looks amazing and fits so well. And this week has been all about lighting. Put up 2 ceiling fans in the large area and then hung 10 (so far) hanging lights in various places along with a string of "cute" lights, a string of holiday lights and a tube of lights. the Latter is hung under the backside of the bar and looks great... the others are up over entrances. I hope to get some decent pictures of the place all lit up in the next couple days because it really does look fantastic. Finish the bar and clean up the wood and it really could be rented for functions as it will look amazing.
In the meantime, here are a couple pics from the work party a couple weeks ago:
