Decided to build a bigger shed for my implements and tractor. Tractor will stay here in the summer, heated garage in the winter.
12x24 with 4x24 porch for my smoker. Half will be loft inside. Headroom upstairs is just over 5’.

That looks like a fun project. I would like to build something like that but I don't have a need for more buildings at the moment.

Very nice barn. Those trusses look to have some real engineering to them. Looking forward to more pictures. 👍🏻
I set up an assembly line for sure. 76 2x6s and 114 gusset plates. All glued and stapled. Easier to cut than they look but very time consuming to assemble.


Wirh the current price of lumber, that's a $50k building....looks great. Also looking forward to more pics.

It’s definitely not cheap right now but about half of what it’s been. To have a smaller building delivered was over 10k. I’ve got about 7500 in right now. Plus it’s more fun to build.

Treated 2x6 joists on the 4x4 ground contact runners(spaced 4’). Floor joists 16 OC. 3/4” treated tongue and groove plywood.

I feel pretty good about it.

I have pretty much the same setup on my shed and I can say that you might double up on the flooring. I had noticeable cupping from lawn tractors that would sit in between the joists. I ran a second layer of 3/4" OSB in the opposite direction and it's vastly more stable. That was with a 60" Zero turn mower and D160 lawn tractor. There's no way my 2025R at the time would have not caused some damage. It's a lot easier to do when you build instead of having to take everything back out again.

I purchased a pre-built shed for my 1025, a couple years in the floor has sagged under the wheels. I'll second what VASteelersGuy said, second layer of 3/4 or thicker floor material.

What scares me is the loose gravel the structure is sitting on. Its a beautiful building wish i had one like it but with a concrete floor for rigidity. I'm jealous :)

So you built the trusses yourself? Was this your design?
