One piece sheets, 25 to 30 ft long ? Really looks nice. We use a product called Galvalume here. Is that painted metal or something like strong panel? Screwed down or nailed ?

Nicely done! My old barn got standing metal seem in 1996 on the west side, 2001 on the east side. If I hadn't done that it would be gone by now.

Looks like a good solid straight old barn. You got the roof on just in time. They don't last long without a good roof and you'll have good dry storage for a long time at reasonable expense.

Now 15 gals of red barn paint thinned with 5 gals of linseed oil and it will sparkle.

Thank you for preserving it. Lots of old barns are going down around here through neglect. Once the roofing starts to go, it's only a matter of time before the interior structure is crumbling down. Realize many of the old barns are not terribly useful in today's modern agriculture where you need a large warehouse to even get your tractor in, but I sure hate to see the old ones falling down. They're a part of history!

Looks like a nice straight barn. Too bad if it was to rot away. Love that metal roofing, snow won't stay on it and it will last a lot longer than asphalt shingles. Seeing a lot of it up here in Maine.

I bet it would take at least 50 gallons of paint.

I've often said that there's a real feeling of satisfaction with the sound of rain on a new roof.
