When Jack acquired the property the barn was in pretty rough shape. The floor was rotten and he had to remove a baler by connecting a chain and carefully hauling it out using a tractor positioned outside the building. The floor could not take the weight of both tractor and baler. He rebuilt the barn and it is now a stout and immaculate building ready to stand for another 100 years. Kit the horse uses the basement living quarters which open onto the field in the background.
Jack is skilled in a remarkable spectrum of life tasks.
