We drove up to NY for the recent Cub Fest at Cecil's and we had a great time. You will see us up there again.

We had farms in Dartmouth MA and in Barneveld NY, but those were sold in the 80's. Both farms were populated with red tractors, and a couple Cub Cadets. Other Farmall tractors we had were H, 450, 504, 656, 666, and 966. And of course I'll never forget the McCormick baler with the cub engine, and the times it konked out and we'd start it with the crank.

Last summer, with the help of Chuckwheat Farm, JimDawg, my friend Pat and my other son Tom, we put up a 2600 square foot pole barn for storage and projects.

The main section is 30 x 60, and attached to it is a 20 x 30 workshop, plus there's a 10 x 20 lean-to porch. In the fall of '09 I will put a chimney and woodstove in the workshop. Other than that, the shop is basically done. The main section needs siding and doors, right now it's basically a big steel roof sitting on the poles. The wall purlins are there, just waiting for more siding, which is vertical ship-lap pine, planed on one side (interior) and rough on the other side (exterior). I mixed random 1x6, 1x8, and 1x10's. The roofing is steel painted green. Last August the best deal by far on it was Home Depot, and they were outstanding with on-time delivery and the product seemed of excellent quality. The trusses came from Trussco in RI, and we were very pleased with them too. Excellent quality and service. And the siding is from Brightman Lumber of Assonet MA.

We put two sliding doors between the main part and the shop, so we can bring anything in the shop.

Out in the pole barn next to the cub there's a 1945 Chevrolet 1-ton truck which was built during WWII as a firetruck. After many years at Cherry Valley NY Fire Dept, I made it into a flatbed for farm use. There's also a '46 Dodge 1/2 ton pickup which belongs to my son Andy who is in Afganistan right now courtesy of the USAF.

We'll be looking forward to participating in the forums and meeting you through the site or Cub Fests.

Bob

Hi Bob, and Welcome! I live in Falmouth, across the bay from you guys in Dartmouth. It is pretty obvious we need to have a local Cubfest pretty soon with all the local members that are popping up. I am in the process of putting a barn/shelter up and would really appreciate being able to come and see yours and discuss how you came up with the design/build. Maybe Chris could meet us as well since I am supposed to bring him a gasket set pretty soon. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks

Yes, a local mini-fest would be great.... Possibly we should try to find out what Joe over at Tom Ten farm is up to with the engine!??
