Default Barn Build











I am building a 36 by 24 two story barn (loft). Been delayed by this wet spring and mud in my side lot - moved from back lot to be closer to house and use as a garage at times. . had to clear this front side area anyway since 85% were Ash trees and the emerald borer got them bad last couple years.

Nice! I had a 24x36 pole barn I used as a woodworking shop built at my last house. Are you going to run electrical service, insulate and condition that space?

Keep pics coming!

Yes. see pics on post below (in a few minutes). It is a Country Carpenter Barn from Hebron. They have a great video tour of this 1 and 1/2 story barn on their web-site. Everyone I talked to says they are the best for post and beam. I thought of doing a stick built version but for a variety of reasons went with these guys. The stick version didn't save much $and it is sorta an old post and beam barn neighborhood :-)

@ just over $50 per sq. ft. that's not bad at all, very nicely done.
