Project 3 Silo Chute Contractor Project
Though the barn silo at the Charles and Hattie Olsen Farm was beautifully restored by the Park around 2004, the silage chute has been hanging in the balance. In 2012 we began repair of this important aspect of how a barn functioned. Given the height issues, we’ll be contracting this project out to our experienced timber-framer.
