Start of the New Building

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.

Start of the New Building

Postby tst » Fri Sep 04, 2015 12:32 pm

starting to bring in material for the new barn, it will be 40 x 80, two stories with large shed roofs on the outside to get equipment out of the weather, picked up some plywood yesterday, 268 sheets of 3/4", it only took two old guys, me being one of them 1 1/2 hrs to load it all by hand, hope it will have enough room for the machine shop and room for cubs and storage

Tim, A big project that I know you'll enjoy once completed. Don't they have fork lifts where you live? :lol:

Tim, looks like a big project, as a former woodworker I will follow your work with great interest. Will the ply be exposed to the weather??. Will the roof also be of ply??
Please keep us up to speed with the work like Barnyard did with his. I enjoyed following all the processes he did when constructing his barn. Hope you can find the time to do the same :{_}: :{_}:
Bernard,

Building will be wood roof and shingles, do not like tin, where I picked up the plywood no forklift was to be had, the plywood was slightly used new!, a contractor remodeled a gym and was required to hay 3/4 ply on the floor before working on it, so some of the wood has paint stains, tire tracks from the man lifts, never nailed or screwed, it was a deal to buy the pile for $2000, 3/4 fir plywood by me is $35 a sheet so that would have cost a little over $9000 from the lumber yard, so for saving $7000 I bought it all I had to use the trailer as I could not fit it all in the minivan :lol:

Tim, never pass up a good deal like that one. now you gots 7 grand more to play with for the barn :-)

When I built my pole barn - used materials or 2nd's/3rd's at rock bottom prices helped make the project doable. I like recycling material. You done got a great deal.

Now .. where are the pics????

Tim, I worked in a lumber yard for 21 years. Definitely worth hand loading. That's a steal!
