Boys and their toys tearing it up during site preparation for our new barn affectionately called Little g Ranch. We started with a treed space and had to pull away all the dirt till we found a solid foundation. All good things must be built on a solid foundation.
Watching the machines dig into the earth and clear the way was a bitter sweet moment. I know we’ll be doing something to help animals, but I’m always a little sad to see the land tore up for human consumption.
Which is why we’re working with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Niagara Conservation to create a new habitat for wildlife in 2016!
Little g Ranch
They dug and dug and then hit a solid surface where they started dumping stone. Tons and tons of stone… and I mean tons and tons.
Once our site was prepared we built the concrete form and we installed the drainage system.
Next went the infloor heat. We’ll never lose another animal due to cold weather!
The regulator was very complex and expensive, but worth it since we’re burying the line in concrete.
The big Lafarge truck came and brought the concrete. We tested the infloor heat system and can only hope it works!
They poured the concrete in one day.
They hand textured the entire area.
Now, that’s a solid foundation! A foundation we can build something wonderful and solid.
We put our mark in the concrete for the future site of BCFS.
