They are still working through the channels to get the electric hooked up to the barn, so Garry needs a flash camera to get a good photo inside the classroom/milkhouse/bathroom addition. This week he mentioned that they had been bending pipe to make gates for the barn.

|Laying out the footprint for the rooms|
|Some unnecessary openings were bricked up|
|The rain leaked in and sprouted some wheat!|
|walls going up|
|The windows were framed with wood so plastic can be stapled on in the winter|

|Garry's brother John worked on the bathrooms when he came|
|The classroom will have the windows|
The tile is now finished inside the bathroom walls and showers, and more white paint has gone up on the inside walls, the toilets are in, too. Garry said Maria will be out this week and she is looking for her painting clothes to finish up the walls. He said he bought the inside doors to hang.
The guys are building a well house for the well that was drilled a week ago. The final project to get the barn ready will be installing the milking equipment this summer, but Garry hopes to be able to move some of the bred heifers and the ones he will be buying into the facility soon. They will start calving in the fall when we have students.
