Ok guy's, this is why no "new" Brocks have been added to the Baldwin Bros. fleet in awhile. We are working on getting this old barn on Dave's property water tight. Last year we did the back section, now this year(2011) we are doing the front. The roof has been bad for a number of years now, and the barn has been taking on water. The main beam (front to back) was rotted out and needed to be changed along with quite a few rafters. After our regular jobs, my "crew" and I have been trying to bang this thing out. One of our goals in doing this is to be able to park all of our Brockways inside, freeing up the other shops for restorations and more Brocks. No, the silo is not comming down. Dave has plans for that, that your gonna have to see to believe. Thanks to Chris Vogler from CV designs and his 60' boom lift, this project is full steam ahead. (It is not a UR machine, no time to paint it yet). (also, notice the umbrella strapped to the basket. says "Miller High Life"). There's no BS in this barn. It's all about Brockways Baby, at Dave Baldwin's Brockway Acres. C-U at the show!

Dane,
Looks good,you can do our barn next?. Are western ny cows taller or do you have to raise the ceiling height of first floor to fit brocks? Wondered if silo is a Unadilla Silo Co.,most wood silos in ny are and were made right here in my hometown. They are still in business and make laminated beams and trusses. Sorry for the history lesson :)....Brian

Obviously will be a "Club House" in the silo. How are you gonna get a refrigerator up there?

Yes, the silo is a unidilla. The beams for the hay mow are coming out. Cables, Large front door, and brockways going in. Emery, when you come up to visit you'll have a spot for your horses to bed down! 35' silo + 60' boom lift = fridge at top of silo. :P
