first off this is not for me, my 15 year old son has the yellow and white fever, with the exception of one ht20, all of his gt's are cub cadets(9). we built him a shed a few years back and in very little time filled it up. since then my wife and I have picked up a FEW for us to take along to the shows when we go. with that said between Keith(my son), me, wife, dad, fnl, we have 23 or so gt's. not all of them are at my place, but we are out of room. we started a new barn the other day for Keith, thought I would share some pics of the progress. here you go.100_2623.JPG 100_2624.JPG 100_2625.JPG 100_2626.JPG 100_2627.JPG

its 26' wide by 32' deep, 12' ceiling in the front 16'. the back 16' will have a loft for parts and such. he should have 8' under the loft and around 7' above it in the center and 4' or so on the sides. one 10 x 10 overhead door in the front, man door on the west side. a lot bigger than his other barn that you can see in the background. almost all of the lumber we cut down and had it sawed for us, its all rough cut oak. never dreamed that he would have taken it this far 7 years ago when he got his first one!!!!

all the credit goes to him. he has worked and paid for every tractor he has by himself. he worked for his grampa all summer helping him do whatever he needed done for this barn. I cant complain at all, he is a very good kid. cant wait to get it done, the weather has slowed us down, right now we have about 5-6" of snow on the ground.

Nice barn....Looking good.

I was counting the post and I determined it was 26' X 32', I used to work construction and we built a few pole barns.

That's going to be a nice barn. Lots of room. Sounds like your son is deserving

of it. :thumbs: Looking forward to seeing it loaded up with the treasures.

Just wondering, what is with the tarps or fabric on the ground?

the tarps in the building are just keeping the mud down. when we start on it again we will pull them out. that way we don't have to wade in mud all day long.
