I realized I've been a bit delinquent with my tractor work photos so here are some of the tractor house currently underway.

The lean-to is comprised of two separate lean-tos. Each has a surface area of 12'x12'. Taking into account the overhangs the connected structure has a usable floor space of 10'x24'.
The skids are 2x8s scabbed to the sides of the 4x6 posts. At some point I will be adding a set of 4x4 between the 4x6s on the rear section to support a 10'x6' shelf to store the 403 and 60D. The tiller and future box blade will set under said shelf.
The rafters are 2x6 x14' at a 3:12 slope (little to no snow load in the south).

The thought behind breaking the structure into two separate pieces is to make it mobile for when I have a barn to put it up against or.. I can put them together along the roof ridge line to make a shelter style structure either for animals or to put down by the pond.

As you can probably tell from the photos I have one roof on and am starting to link the two sections together before putting the roof on the second half.. theoretically the roof should match up perfectly, so far - so good.

It's probably worth mentioning that in my county structures under 16' in any length (length, width, height) do not require permitting. Though this structure (these structures) would probably fall into the ag exception anyway.. or at least that's my planned argument if the law man comes around.

Tip for anyone trying to fit roof panels together perfectly..
Ratchet straps work great.
