Wine & Whiskey
Barn Lounge Tour
Updated: Dec 7, 2021
There were changes made to the Barn Lounge. The third level floor was removed to expose the ceiling to the peak. That wood was used to finish off the space connecting the barn to our kitchen/family room. If you aren't in the know about the cost of salvaged (reclaimed) barn wood, you might think it is odd to purposely reuse dirty old wood in a finished living space. If interested, do an internet search for "reclaimed lumber" and you might be astonished at the pricing.
Here are shots of the wood: looking up at the third level, the wood removed and stacked, and then getting ready for cutting and installation. It was a tedious process.
For wall art Whiskey purchased all of the Annual Lake Winnipesaukee Antique Boat & Car Show posters and hung them in the Lounge. Read about the posters here:

Fortunately for us we have a friend that does stone walls and earth work and is a hoarder of amazing large granite: Bedrock Excavation LLC NH. He brought and installed amazing pieces on both sides of the barn. Here is the process of setting the two steps on the back side.
Video of putting the steps in place. After the steps were set, wine and bourbon were poured, and an impromptu jam session happened. Life is good!
To celebrate having the Barn Lounge being back in business after the work was done, we had a small gathering for Whiskey's birthday. The theme was small plates / finger foods which my girlfriends assisted in making; I made a few items and a chocolate cake.

Cold weather is blowing in so the Barn Lounge will be closing down. However, the Christmas tree will be going up in 5 weeks so that will get us back out there to enjoy that. Hopefully the snow will appear and make for a festive holiday season.
Live life to the fullest! Stay tuned for our Thanksgiving travels where will capture a bit more warm weather and sunshine before the snow flies and we hunker down for the winter in New Hampshire.
