Finally!!

Well, no work has been done yet, but material will be ordered shortly and grading should start in the next couple weeks.

Finally a builder I feel confident in and work will commence in about 3-4 weeks.

Now the fun part, paying for building permits and dealing with the county.

This is apprx what our barn will look like.

Pictures will commence once the building starts.
I'm going to try and do as much time lapse as possible.


It will be a 40x60, we'll be doing 6 stalls for horses. The center section will have a loft, but not for hay. Not sure what we'll use it for exactly.

hmmm, I don't know, Zach. It looks kind of plain to me. Can't you come up with anything nicer??? :hide:







THAT is gorgeous!! I can't wait to see the real thing when you get it done.
Well, it's not going to be cedar siding, but it will be wood sided. It's more the style, but best I could come up with with the cover off 1 side.

Another example, but not exact. We're not doing dutch doors, we're doing sliders. The end door will be a roll up.

Don't think it will fit a motorhome. Strictly a 4 legged critter house.

I love those design types. I would love to have one.
Take plenty of pics.:good2:
I'm with you Joe, I too love that design, unfortunately when I built my outbuildings we needed a different storage idea and didn't go this route,, they are beautiful and useful in my opinion. I have built them though in my past life for customers that have horses. :hi:

Way above my pay grade for this type of construction.

I had to build a fence to keep the cows away from the build site.

it's not complete yet, but getting close. I need to put up 3 more strands and a gate.

That's a good looking fence, please don't tell me that you eyeballed that line when you set them.

No string line was harmed in the making of this fence. You can see one point where I veered a little, but for the most part I did a pretty good job with the bare eyes.:good2:

Grading day. Missed a few hours. 128gb cards don't hold as much as I'd like.
