The Threshing barn at Thrum mill

barn2 barn4 barn5

So now it’s time to get going again with this building malarkey!

barn6 barn3 barn1 Scaffold is now all safely assembled so work on the roof can start, a bit of work has been carried out ( as a matter of emergency) at the front of the barn so all is good there now!

First of all I’d better tell you all about the barn's use in the past and the future plans!

A threshing barn would have been the fresh corn from the fields first stop! In there, the corn would be prepared for the drying kiln ( in the mill ) and taken down with a trolley to the big double doors ( now the entrance to the semi subterranean kitchen).

Unlike the mill building itself the threshing barn Is not listed so there is a slightly more relaxed feel about this stage of the build!

Obviously we will be using the same build technique & a sympathetic restoration to the exterior so it will be in keeping with the mill itself!

The barn will be used for garaging 2 cars and a bit of storage space! and upstairs which will be entered from the exterior with stone steps up the side & will be a 1 bedroom self contained annex for friends & family:)

Watch the journey as it progresses & words of encouragement won’t go a miss!!!

Enjoy the ride… & thank you for caring:) x
