That is pretty nice, Is that considered a "pole" barn?

I am working on mine right now.

It's going to be 40' x 28' and have four bays that are 10' wide. The big boat will go into the bay with the 20' 8"x8"'s and then the other three bays step down to 16's......(length before they are burried).

I'll have the big boat in the first bay, smaller ski boat in the second bay, I have a Range Rover Classic in the third bay and my dog is getting relocated to the fourth bay along with some other stuff.

I'm sandwiching three 2" x 6" boards and notching the posts so that my trusses will have their support and I've ordered a Charcoal Gray metal roof. There will be water, power and lots of lights as well.

In front of that I am building a two car detached garage with a shop off the back side of it. It will have a rolling door on the side of the shop so that I can wheel my boats/cars out and wrench on them when I want.

Anyway, my yard/driveway, ect. are an absolute wreck.....but it's progress.

Couple of pics.





I'll update this as I get a little further along.

Also, I need caps for my fence post...6" x 6"......60 or so of them. Anybody got a lead on some that I can order in bulk and not break the bank?

Lookin' good I have to ask, did you get to play with that excavator at all? My old man almost bought a Cat 305D a few months ago. I got to use it on the rental. Caused some damage but nothing that couldn't be repaired I had a blast running that thing.

Hehe, yes.....I'm doing most of this myself as time permits.

I do this for a living on a much, much larger scale (commercial) so I pretty much have a key to every piece of equipment on earth......I'm not a great operator, but I like to play every once in a while.

I need to replace the lights in my shop/garage. I currently have 8' T-12 florecent, and think I will go with 4' T-5 florecent lights. The T-5's seem to be much brighter, what have been peoples experiences, and any source for deals on them? I currently have 7 8 foot double bulb T-12's, but could use a little more light. The building is 24' X 30', wtih 12' ceilings.

Just built a 30 x 56 x 15ft walls this past fall. I put (8) 6 bulb T-5 fixtures in recessed into the ceiling. Measurements from the lighting company said I needed 6 fixtures, 8 worked great!!!! I have a thread going about the building and it has a few pics that show the lighting.

If you guys want something to shoot for, I will offer up a picture someone sent me on Facebook. I can't think of a much cooler place to hang out around your boats.
