Old Hog Barn

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.

Thanks for posting pics of the newly refurbished hog barn. Looks good. Nice shop pictures as well.

Who's giving us the "OK" hand sign in the background of the last picture (by the door)?

Wife. She takes her I pad and reads books or plays games when not helping.

Acreage neighbor said the hog barn had originally built for chickens. Construction indicates that the building was originally for chickens. Side walls, chicken wire nailed to the outside of the studs. For hogs, several layers of paper feed bags nailed outside the chicken wire, then a layer of rough cut boards for siding. The concreted floors are sloped and a drain was placed on the west end of the building. Building had water and probably heat at one time.

Edit. The inside side walls are covered with 1/2" OSB lumber. That would indicate that the previous owner used the building as a shop.

One translucent panel installed and about 1/3 of the north wall sided before it got to hot to work.

About 1/3rd of the north wall sided with old sheet metal roofing. Ripping off the old siding below the windows then repairing the studs and sill if needed.

Room for 12 Farmall Cubs, 6 Cubs on each side of the center drive and probably 8 H or M sized tractors down the center drive.
When the 154 is parked next to the wall it doesn't extend into the center drive.

Edit: Snakes are/were among the variety of critters living in the hog building.

Dale, try it again. I reworked the test forum. Worked in the test forum. Not sure why it didn't work when originally posted in this forum.

Purchased a DEWALT 12-in 15-Amp Dual Bevel Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw. Model DWS779 with stand to replace a still working 30 year old Mikita miter saw. The Mikita would only cut material about 5 inches wide. The Dewalt will cut a 2" x 14" board.

Plan is to finish the east end of the hog barn this summer. Need to widen the machinery door about 2 feet by moving two 6"x6"x10' support posts, rebuild the machinery doors, adding two translucent roof panels.

Also plan on repairing an old 8' x 12' granary. Replace a couple of purlins, fasten down sheet metal roofing, repair the floor, replace windows. The old granary is also used for storage.
