The shop building being built for Pepper Harman and Harman Agency behind the Northwest Farm Credit Service office is taking shape.  Harman, who is on the lift, says he’s about got everything done that needs to be done before the snow hits. The building will be used to service company vehicles and to store company files that are currently being stored at Gordon Harman’s place. Once this building is finished Harman will go to work on the Farm Credit Building, adding a conference room in back and updating it to eventually move their business, which is in sore need of more space, over from their current location on Main Street.
