Barn Improvement

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Barn Improvement

Postby Stanton » Sun Oct 24, 2021 6:51 pm

Since building my barn a few years ago, I had planned on getting some galvanized tin and covering the walls. That way I could create sparks from grinding and welding in the corner without worry of catching something on fire.

My neighbor had told me he was going to tear down his tin-covered barn several years ago, but just got to it. Gave me a huge stack of tin. Well, today was the day.

Think it turned out good.

Yup. Looks good.

I did the same thing in our shop to keep things from knocking the exterior panels loose or holes in them.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thanks. Think I have enough tin to cover up to the first girt all around the barn.

Not to long ago I was welding a panel on my truck and it had a double panel so I thought I was good.
The other panel had a tiny bolt hole in it and a spark found it way thru to light the carpeting on fire. :roll:
Tin or no tin I’d hand a welding blanket between it and the sparks that fly.

That’s a fine barn and working area Mr. Stanton. I can imagine that you will have some Red paint left over from a a previous project that will look great on the tin. :{_}: :{_}: .

No red paint intended for that area. Nice idea, but I'll pass on that.
