what a mess

Postby birddog » Mon Aug 05, 2013 6:12 pm

It's surprising that a person can keep finding room to put stuff when you thought there was no room left. Four years ago I thought the pole shed was about as full as I could get it. Since then though I've moved things around a couple times and added, two LGT's, one riding mower, two carts/wagons (one with a wash tub and ringer washer on it, the other with to reel mowers), a JD B, and a JD M. Last week when I went to move the scraper from the shop to storage I made a couple more moves and now I not only got the scraper in but it looks like there may be enough room for one more LGT. (I did think there was room for the scraper before I started, but didn't think there would be additional room after it was in) Before the latest moves I could still get around some with a little crawling over things, but now except from getting from the entry door to the big door most of that is a fond memory.

Here's a picture of the chart I made so when I move things out for the local parade and celebration I can get it all back in.

If I ever emptied my barn I would never be able to put it all back the way it came out.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I just did some measuring in my barn and it looks like I have room for your GP and the 40C. If you'd run them over to Michigan I'll play keep them for you. :wink:

Gee, sorry ricky, you picked two of the five or six things I would probably never get rid of.

For me it would be easier just to build another barn. Vern

Birddog, I hope you have a lot of big doors on that building, or the parade will be over before you get things moved enough to get what you want out.

Nope John, every thing goes out the one door on the bottom of the picture. The building was built with the intentions of putting doors on the side (right side of picture) but I can't afford to buy them. Also with things squeezed in like they are the side doors would have only limited use. As you can see some of the stuff is either against or straddling the poles. (little black squares in the pic)

That's a pretty cool drawing and more amazing collection. Maybe I'll make a map of Dad's Magic Barn someday..... :D

Thanks Ken. It might be hard to make a map of a Magic Barn, wouldn't things just keep appearing and disappearing? :big smile:
