    Home for my 2018 1025R

    Well I've had my Scut for about 10 days now, and those darn birds like it too much. My water bill will get pretty expensive if I don't get a shed built pretty soon. That or you won't see the green under all the white $&I%. So today I decided to clear out the area where the pool used to be and mark my corners. Took most of the day but my diaginals are only off 1 in for a 20 X 20 shed. Close enough for site work. Will try and tweak it when I put the forms in for the concrete floor. Now to talk to the planning board and get a permit (I hope they're not too picky over such a small shed. Oh yeah also have to get some estimates for concrete work, getting to old to do that grunt work. Will try to post pictures as it comes along for anyone who might be interested

    I built a 30x40 and it looked huge when I laid out the pad. Then I put up the building and I wish I had at least gone 10' larger in both directions. I added a shed roof on one side and that helped with getting some implements outside and out of the rain/sun. Go larger if you can swing it.

    No matter what size you get, make sure the door/s are big enough. Good luck.

    Got that right

    And high enough doors so that you can get in with your tractor and the roll bar all the way up.

    I agree with others on the size but also understand that doesn't grow on trees. I would make it with stipulations for an addition in the future but definitely what Levi said, give yourself a nice high door to eliminate the ROPS/garage door battle.

    Waaa? You need a permit for a shed? Lol
    I remember my FIL going to town of Hill, NH and asking about permits and inspections for his cabin. They were like "inspections for what? You're gonna live in it." lol

    YEAH in the big city you need a permit to insure that you get taxed on building. When I was in Allentown I checked with town planning board about an addition to home and was told "Just let me know when it's done ". Different ways for different places.

    I built a 20x20 shed for my 1026R (also excavated with that 1026R). I made the doors tall enough for the 1026R with ROPS, but they are just a little low for a 2038R. I wish, looking back, that I had made them taller (as tall as possible, really) for future expansion and/or resale. I’m going to move my door headers up into the gable area (right above the top plate of the wall), gotta love the fact that gable ends aren’t really load bearing. =)

    I’ll also say that 20x20 gets eaten up really fast. I thought I’d have all kinds of room. “The tractor is only 4 ft wide” I said (which was wrong with the backhoe... the stabilizers stick out a couple inches on each side). “It’s only 16ft long (with FEL/backhoe)” I said. “That’s room in front and tons of room off to the side”.... but no. You want some room all around the tractor to access things, so 20’ is basically filled front/back once you add 2ft of clear space all the way around. And you really have only the other half extra, which gets filled really fast once you dump a couple implements onto casters. I wish I’d made the shed a little larger... even 24x24. I’ll admit that I suppose I’d be telling you that 30x30 would have been nice if I’d built it 24x24...

    But still, I wish I’d done 24x24 so that there was more room behind the tractor when it’s parked with stuff on it and I want to work on it with the doors closed. And sometime soon I will have to raise the door headers and redo that for a larger tractor so that I don’t join the “I hit the top of the door” club (which I know I would) when I upgrade to a 2038r.
