Another Pole Barn Project done !

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.

Another Pole Barn Project done !

Postby Rudi » Wed Feb 10, 2016 8:25 am

Since Em's and my return from Cecil's CubFest Northeast back in 2013 and the diagnosis of PAH which severely put a crimp into my QoL and putzing in the shops... I finally was able to get one of my pet projects completed. Although I can no longer do the majority of the stuff needed and sometimes will have to hire or get lucky enough to have friends and family donate a hand or two :D , we still are able to get some stuff done. Limited to specific duties but still enjoying it and it will allow me to putz again in the shop come spring.

The project itself was completed mostly by November but life gets in the way and now I finally have the energy to post an update ..... :{_}: Keeping in mind that while this project was ongoing, we also had 20 cords of wood cut, junked, split, hauled and piled in the wood shed and the house, did the side line project and a bunch of others.

One of my biggest issues is knees and other joint issues and working on concrete or working on gravel is not good, in fact it is rather painful. I originally had taken into account when we started the pole barn project 8 years ago ... oh my... has it really been that long???? .. that eventually I wanted a wood floor so that stuff was level, maximize storage and a few other benefits of a sub floor that come with that package.

While we were building the Wood Shed, Ray decided that the trusses he had been storing here would make a great beginning to a couple of projects and this floor project is number 2 in that triumvirate as it turns out.

Most of it is self explanatory. The cabinet shop floor is about 12 inches higher than ground level at the western wall ... so that was the obvious starting place. When the poles went in, this was also ground zero so it made sense to start there.

First chore was to empty the pole barn :headbang

Image

The next order of business - level and use deck block for primary support. Add in vapour barrier, frame stock, 2" styro insulation and then the sub-floor. All the framing stock came from those recycled trusses and is primarily 2"x6".

Pocket for the mower lift platform is framed.

Image

Framing for the ramp.

Image

Flooring for ramp in.

Image


Ray welded up the lift frame and installed it .. one day .. gonna be slick :D

Image

Image

Only real job left to do for this phase is to mount the hoist to the ceiling and the electrics. Pole barn is almost done.

What amazes me is that before the ramp, Granny, Ellie-Mae, the 53, and the JD all fit front to butts and the Cub Cadet, Craftsman are under the shelving unit as they are projects for another day. The Putt-Putt started right up and we parked her in the 53 foot storage trailer down below for the winter (oh yeah, that was another we had to do it project this year - leaked like a sieve). There is lots of room for the Lo-Boy and loader to fit right in. Wow... 4 Cubs, a JD and 2 garden tractors fit in this setup.... amazing.

More to come in time. For now I am bushed, time to go for a nap.

Likewise Rudi, looks like old times to read about your projects.

You members who have joined this forum in recent years would find it beneficial to go back and read some of Rudi's accomplishments. When I first joined (which will soon be 10 years) Rudi was one of the first friendly members to welcome me. He created the "Welcome Wagon" section along with many others. He is responsible for most of the manuals that are here ready to be downloaded. No other forum that I know of has this manual feature as we do. What a great resource this is.

So old friend, welcome back and still praying for your health.

Thanks all for the kind comments. They are appreciated. Just waiting for the lo-boy to come home then a herd pic will be forthcoming. Spring is almost here and I am slowly gaining strength. Seems the sun has a lot to do with my health or at least how I feel. We see soon I hope.

Wow! Looking good Rudi. Good to hear from you. Makes me want to get my shop areas clean and functional. Getting ready to build another storage shelf for the basement and have been burying pipe and clearing brush/vines. Thirteen years since we met online. Lots has happened since. Thanks for all you have done for the forum.
