During this process, they entered into another agreement that the builder would build a smaller pole barn on his property as well. The smaller barn (unknown size) was completed except for the sides and doors. Mr. Oliver stated that the builder advised him that the doors were on back order and it would take a while to get them due to the impact of COVID-19.
