Barn: the roof, it appears!

Barn: the roof, it appears!  The builders got an awful lot done today.  First they put the sheathing on the two side roofs, and then the put up all the trusses for the center roof.  Along the way they found time to start building the stairs, and to put in dozens of bracing blocks.

With the side roofs in place, walking through the first floor of the barn is an entirely different experience now, as you feel like you're in a building.  The two roofs and the floor of the second story completely block the sky.  The plywood ceiling panels aren't in yet; when they are, that will amplify this feeling a bit more.  The second floor looks huge to my eye: a single 2,200 square foot room with an 8' ceiling.  I've no idea what we're going to put up there, but I can't imagine we're ever going to run out of storage space again...
