PUTTING UP THE LAST OF THE METAL SIDING INSIDE OUR NEW WOOD PRAIRIE PACKING SHED. Working on the new building has been a long slog ever since we got done Potato Harvest, but now we’re in the home stretch.

In this photo, Caleb (left) has just trimmed a sheet of Amish-made steel-roofing we are using for the inside walls. Beyond the strapped walls is our office.

In our application, the steel is indestructible, reasonably priced and fast to install. Justin is breathing the thin air up in the blue forklift bucket.

Last Summer, we placed the winning bid for that blue bucket at a local farm auction. Mainers are driven to pursue good deals, as is reflected in the success of iconic local Maine chain, ‘Marden’s Surplus and Salvage.’

A “good deal” is way more desired and important than forking over big piles of money for things shiny, new and full-priced. In Maine, frugality has always been king and is a way-of-life.
