Glad to see the tractor is inside. I hate seeing them outside uncovered !!!!

Is the old Chevy pickup going in the third bay ????

Will you have any extra room or is it all spoken for ???

Unfortunately the tractor and the GMC won't have a spot inside, my 3 cars will be in there. I wanted it bigger for the extra space but it just wasn't possible given the local building restrictions for residential zones here, this is as big as it can be without a variance. The only solution is to buy more land that is farm assessed and hope to come into a huge amount of money. Plus the barn would have ended up with a larger footprint then the house. :shock:

Great looking "barn". I'm building a coal bin & that metal roofing on your barn looks good for the roof on a bin. Are those panels pretty light? I will be hinging the roof.

I see your point!

Not really, they are steel.

I have enough extra to hopefully use on the little building I am planning for the boiler. :idea:

WOW! Nice, John!!! :up: :up: :up:

I don't now how I missed this post -- last time I posted, you were in the planning stages....

One thing I learned is that no matter how big your storage is, you will continue to find things to put in it, until.......you have to walk sideways around everything ...and/or climb over stuff! :funny:

When the wifey & I were house-hunting, I overlooked my house for months (looking online) because the pic didn't impress me. When I finally said what the hell, I'll go look at it for shits & giggles, & actually saw that there was a barn, that was...... BIGGER than the house on the property, I went speeding thru town looking for a pay-phone (was soooo broke then!) to tell my wife: TELL THE REALTOR WE'LL TAKE IT! NOOOW!!!

The barn sold me -- I didn't care if the house was condemned! :lol: The outside measurements including the lean-to addition on the back are 46' L x 26' 10" W. Plus there is a loft upstairs!

I've been in the house for 5.5 years & I need to climb over my Polaris to get to the back lean-to, although there is still a bit of room in the loft -- probably because I have to spend 45 minutes moving stuff out of the way to get to the stairs! :lol:

I never dreamed I'd ever fill that space up, but I did.........& then some!

Yours is much more user-friendly than mine with the 3 bay doors -- not to mention 1000 time nicer looking! Way to work, bro!

Thanks, Smitty.

I bought the house over 18 years ago and have been planning this since. It's as large as I can get it without a variance. I know it will be too small, but the existing post & beam barn fits 2 cars and has a second floor, but needs total rehab. Hopefully both will hold all my junk.
