The other summer project.

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.

The other summer project.

The General ( wife ) wanted a storm shelter put in this year. The tornado that went through Harrisburg Il in February was a little to close for her. I said fine as long as I get to add on to my barn.
The shelter is 10' long, 6' wide, and 5' 6" high. I have electrical power to it from the shed in the background.
I had it set 4' in the ground and then filled in around it. Almost done except for a roof and shortening the vents.
I requested no more projects that involve railroad ties. Hope that works. :lol: :lol:
Barn addition is done except for gravel and a gutter.

Nice! I used to work at a saw mill. Had to stack dozens of railroad ties a day - still green and heavy (ok... heavier).
In those days I was younger and stronger though.

There is nothing special about the inside. It is just four walls, a roof, and a floor. It is only 5' tall inside so not to many people can stand up in it (I am 6' 1"). Almost got to use it last evening. Had a couple of tornado warnings south west of us. Luckily things calmed down before they got to us. We have acouple of chairs, a shelf unit, and a radio in it for now. I am trying to convince the wife I need a new recliner for the den so I can put the old one in the shelter. :lol:

Whatever you put in it, take mold and mildew into consideration, it may tend to be damp in there.
