What a fun day with my wife and this grain bin teardown and hauling it back to our farm. This will be put back together as a grain bin gazebo for our outdoor wedding venue.
Anyone that tells you there isn’t work (serious work) involved in tearing down and loading a grain bin of this size, either haven’t participated in the tear down of one, or they are lying to you. Lol
This grain bin here is 21′ and old, so needless to say it was a tough one for sure. The unloading was easy, because I used my loader tractor and forks, but the loading was all my hand. And yes, the hands of my wife and me.
We left early Sunday am to drive right at 4 hours to Nebraska, and got home at midnight Sunday night. Needless to say, Sunday was a busy and work filled day.
I’m sure we missed some bolts and nuts that flew off in the weeds, but we still ended up with a 5 gallon bucket full of bolts, nuts and brackets.
Check out the pictures below, of start to finish…
Not many women would want anything to do with this kind of labor, but fortunately for me, my wife is all in when it comes to these projects for our farm, especially her wedding venue. No doubt this grain bin teardown and hauling was a full day of hard work, but the end result will be very rewarding.
You know what they say? “If you want something done right, you’ve got to go it yourself”!
We will post more pictures of the grain bin gazebo once we’ve finished it and have it all set up.
Always do your best,
