Episode Synopsis

When a contractor botches the roof of a barn that is home to a group of rescued horses, their winter feed is threatened along with their lives. The recently shingled roof starts to fall apart and into the surrounding pastures, leaving dangerous nails on the ground the horses could step on. In typical Holmes fashion, Mike arrives onsite with his team ready to install a new roof but discovers that every part of the barn needs work, and without the needed repairs the horses would be sent to pasture. Mike and his Crew renovate the stable from top to bottom, adding improvements like a water supply that doesn’t freeze in the winter and a flooring treatment that is hoof friendly, making it right with a bit of horsing around. Steve Graves from Better Contracting Services Help Mike Holmes re do the Barns Roof.
