New Home for my Cubs

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.

New Home for my Cubs

Postby Rudi » Thu Nov 01, 2007 5:38 pm

As you know, I have been playing with getting my Pole Barn Cub Hut ready for the winter.. it has been a multi year project... :oops: which ones aren't huh :?: :?: :big shy:

Anyways, I have gotten some stuff done.. and we did take a bunch of pics. Em still has to transfer some from her camera to my puter.. but here are a couple that I took yesterday.

I managed to get the rubber dams down around the new addition execpt for two sections of about 6 feet. They will be done as I get ready to sheet the walls. It should provide adequate prevention of water ingress and keep Ellie, Granny and the toys relatively dry. Once the roof is on of course.

As you can see.. there is an awful lot of blank wall against the old shop. This is where my racking will be to store parts, implements and other stuff when not in use. The I-Beam pictured will be the central fixture of the Electric Hoist Trolley system to put away implements and to load the 1600 litre Electrolysis Tank.. :big smile:

More to come.. :!:

Image Looks like it is going to be well built. The hoist system will come in handy. Looks like you will have plenty of room to store the cubs and parts for about a year, and then you'll have it filled up. :wink:

Nice!

When my friend built a new one he put in an I beam and got an electric lift from another friend (5 ton or something equally serious).

Nice to have the hillbillies under cover!

Great Job! It looks like Ft. Knox would be easier to break into. The Clampett's oughta be safe from me in there.

Does that mean I will have a new place to play the next time I'm up?

Excellent addition Rudi! You've got it well thought out. I particularly like the I beam hoist set up. Man, would that come in handy! I can't believe the size of your tank. I could sure have used one that size for my fenders this Fall. Will you have the roof on before the snow begins to fly?

Looks Great Rudi, and if you have a wind that breaks that one down, you and Ms Em and the girls should all already have been gone long before. The I beam hoist rail is a must have set up. I know you'll be proud when it is finished. Pete

Kinda over built. Good and sturdy. Most pole barns in this area are much less substantially built.

Is the reason snow loads?
I have an excuse. CRS.

Rudi,
Well done 8) That's one nice, sturdy looking addition :!: I really like the overhead hoist, it's a bit bigger than mine but then mine was a add-on years later. It will come in very handy and you'll wonder why I didn't do this sooner :wink:
Send more finished photo's and enjoy this winter :D

I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Hey Rudi, Rosanne said that once you get the sides and the roof on you won't need any lights. :lol:
