Barn Repairs Are Going Full Blast
Critical Foundation Work Underway
August 7, 1999 -- Some much needed foundation work is proceeding on the Millennium Barn on Ayers Island. The work is being carried out by Ike & Sons Contracting Company, which specializes in barn restoration.
An earlier repair made on the barn consisted of dumping concrete over the original wooden floor in the barn. An estimated 30 tons of concrete was poured into the barn. It has now been all removed. The following pictures (click on the small pictures to see the larger pictures) show the concrete lying in the nearby gravel pit.
