Early in July, DPL Structures Ltd (a local company – who also dismantled the barn from its original site) dug the footing holes for barn plinths on site.
On the hottest day of the year the concrete was poured (a standard concrete mix, but including between 21 and 35% fly-ash to reduce cement content).
Into this they set the 4-bolt sets to secure the barn stanchions.
Later in the month, DPL commenced erection of the frame itself . It only took them 2 days to put it all up!
