Grain Elevator

tob_48In 2007, an 18 ft. x 24 ft. building with an 8/12 roof pitch was moved to the site as the beginnings of a grain elevator.  In the fall of 2009 we built a two-story addition, which measures 16 ft. x 24 ft.  We covered it with 1 ¼ in. corrugated galvanized steel to make it period appropriate.  Once the building was complete we put down an oak tongue and groove floor, built an office area and added some machinery.  We now have a loading dock on two sides of the building and line shafts in place to run the machinery to provide demonstrations typical of early small town elevators.
