I know they put a vapor barrier under concrete now to keep moisture from coming up through it. So I thought it would be a good idea to put it under my gravel in the pole barn. After all the more moisture I can keep off of my tractors and equ the longer it will last. I was surprised how many people thought I was wasting my time. That air moving through the barn would get rid of any moisture coming up through the floor. But I still think its a good idea and did it anyway. After all moisture is always coming up from the ground especially in the spring.
Since I put the pole barn up in march and I could not get the pad level because it was frozen. I had the back part of barn set right on the ground. I had to go in and cut out 1.4 feet of ground so I could get my vapor barrier and gravel in. I took that much out so if I ever have concrete put in I will still have a foot of gravel under it.

Vapor barrier is down and ready for gravel. Tommy's getting a well deserved drink!
Gravel is going in. Tommy was loading the gravel in the pit with the loader. He had to get buckets from different areas of the pit to make the correct mix of sand and gravel. Timmy hauled it in the dump truck and dumped infront of the door. And I pushed it in and leveled it with the bulldozer.
