We buy our corn in bulk to resale. The truck comes and blows in in upstairs bins in the barn shown here behind the straw pile. When the bins stop gravity flow running they need cleaned out.
Bins are easily 8 ft tall , 4 ft wide.
I'm 5'1', S is 6' 1".
S built the bins (there are 4) before I arrived . About 25 yrs ago I believe.
Again I'm 5'1".
They need cleaned out because they are flat floored. I draw (always) the short straw. No pun intended, seriously none?
He wants to start under the eve of the barn. I have to figure how to stretch 4' across to opening and balance on 1/2" board nailed to sides of bin. Miss the rafters with my head and cobwebs, well you know.
It's freaking dark and creepy down here.
Don't the 1/2 " rails look comforting?
No they are not ! He built them couple ft off the bottom. Sides are slick so I use a bucket with a haystring attached. Climb in it and to steps and up pulling the bucket with me.
