Looks real good, Tom.  When I built our house, I put a door in the gable end over the garage door(the window is in the door). It made it easy to put things into the attic without having to carry them through inside. You may want to consider that. I was able to use the forks on the 4500 to put things at the door and save alot of effort. Good Luck, Rick


I don't plan on using the attic for storage, so no door.

Tom, the shed looks good. Didn't look that big when it was just a pad. What kind of a model A do you have that has attachments, a doodlebug??  :smilewink:


Model A is a 30 Tudor sedan, the attachments are for the tractors. :)

You will end up wanting to use it when you add more toys. Plan for it now. The plywood deck nailed down will also stiffen up the entire building. Good Luck, Rick

 

On a side note is this of interest?   http://newlondon.cra...5289932447.html     Note the dual carb adapter.

Garages are like boats,,never big enough..I never planned on using mine attic but had to make access hole,,,and now i store parts for projects,,,not crawling up in attic,,just store things I can reach through access hole while standing on ladder.... 3 steering columns, rads,  I even built some shelve on trusses..

You sure built it strong!  Better stronger than weaker!  Do you have any sort of anchor into the ground?

I figured as much! The model A's are responsible for me getting addicted to old iron. Dad was already collecting them when I was born and I went to my first show and swap when I was 2 weeks old. That was a loooong time ago! That was in a 29 4 door that's still in the family. He never owned any 30-31s. He said they looked too new with the 19 inch tires and he wanted an old car.

That's a really good looking building.  I wish I could build them half that good!

Yes I figured for 12 tractors and my car with all my attachments. :)


You must be good at organizing. I struggle to get three tractors and attachments in my 16'×24' shed.

I have solid bridging down the center and a row of plywood down the center to help stabilize and put up the ridge.

No just sitting on the 4x6's. That kind of weight won't move easily. It will also allow it to floating the frost.

The model A is only 12' long,I plan on parking the tractors sideways along the long wall, and what doesn't fit there will go behind the A. The bonus here is there is nothing already in there to work around, so hopefully they all fit. The 195 is the biggest and it will probably stay out in the portable shed.

Yesterdays progress.

IMG_1739.jpg

I ordered shingles and hope to have the roof done by end of the thanksgiving weekend.

I tallied up the receipts from the permit fee all the way up to the shingles. $6370 so far, the only thing left of major expense is the siding. I priced that at $1500 putting me around $8k. when I guesstimated I figured between 5-6k but knew I'd go over that. I did make some upgrades to the design and added some pricey plastic trim around the shed.

Todays update, progress was halted by rain showers, but managed to get the shingles on before they hit. One more day before I go back to work. I hope to get the ridge on, rest of the tar paper and windows and door in.

The shed was inspected by the town today and passed with flying colors. :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:

Here's a couple pics of latest progress. The Garage door is in, final parts to hook up the torsion spring came in and will be installed this coming weekend.  The side wall with the entrance door and 2 awning windows in. The temporary ramp is in, permanent will be wire mesh on angle iron. My attachments shelf is in with my the Bolens ones in first. And the first tractor to set wheels in the shed.
