Due to 50 mph winds forecasted today, I decided to work on my taxes. Now I'm procrastinating. Thought I'd pass along some progress pictures. I had some help pouring the concrete, but otherwise I have done everything by myself.


First level walls.

With the floor on.

Covered

End wall in place.

Trusses going up.

Other end wall in place

Covering it the first time.

Overhangs built, and starting to insulate and sheet it again

Covered and waiting for steel roofing

Interior picture.

Nice building, that you've done so much by yourself makes it much nicer. great to be "in the dry" as we say here.

I enjoy looking at pics of projects like yours. Takes a combination of great talent and great ambition. I'm sure you'll be glad to have it done. Jim

It's a combination of ideas stolen from different barns in the area. Just drove around asking if I could see their barn, and take some measurements. From there, just made up my own plans.

Yeah. Apartment upstairs, antique tractor storage downstairs. This should give me enough room to get everything indoors again. Already planning my next building.

Dave I like how you bolted the cross members on the rafters. What size bolts did you use? Looks super sturdy!

Lovely building, Well done. I love the shape and design of your old barns, but I dare not mention building something similar here as our building control would have a fit....We have to stay traditional, then something different comes along and what was traditional is no longer correct, but they push you towards the new idea/ design. Unfortunately they have not been on holiday in America to see the design of these buildings.

They're 1/2" carriage bolts. 20 per rafter, so 460 of them in total.
