New Additions to the Farm

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.

Al,

This one is built with metal trusses that follow the roof line, and are attached at each end only, so each truss half is 25' wide by about 2' tall. That gives me a ton of headroom, as I intend to put a lift into one bay inside.

An immutable law of physics is that what you acquire will rapidly fill and exceed all available space. When I was working with farmers considering building a machinery storage building, I encouraged them to do the planning on paper using scaled templates to determine the size needed. Once that was done, double the size and hope you have enough room.

I thought my old barn was big enough at 40'x112'. Then I built my 40'x60'. It just doesn't work out.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

That sounds like what I was talking about. I like that style. Our "new" barn at school uses that style of truss and I've been happy with how it turned out. Several vendors do everything from standing roof kits which is just the roof and the posts, to fully enclosed buildings.

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.
