A little dry ice, some sand paper, primer and paint and it'll be as good as new!

Re: Building Our New Shop


We are officially started. County is putting in the 2 road tubes for the driveways & recrowning the road in preparation for gravel. This road has not been maintained past my house for probably 30 years. I'm paying for half the gravel to have it officially reopened & paying the the tubes & the county is footing the bill for reworking the road & ditch.

Dozer & sheepsfoot roller will be here this after & the dozer operator will start pushing the grass off tomorrow. Sunday, I'll be running the sheepsfoot, while he pushes me up dirt.:2thumbsup:

Bridge has been out for 30 years. 1/2 mile county road is more like a private drive. We're out where the hoot owls screw the chickens.

Re: Building Our New Shop


I've done about all I can do for now. Waiting on the builders to come set the poles & get it ready for metal. Concrete guy will be here within days of the builder.

We had about 6' of fall from one corner to the other, so we built up approx 3' on the low corner. Rented a sheepsfoot roller to pack it in. On Sat night, we flipped our car. Got to bed at 3 am & at 6 am, I crawled on the roller & ran it off & on all day. Spent all day Monday on the trencher trenching water, sewer & electric. Approx 1200'. I woulda loved to have laid up & recooped from the wreck, but the roller was delivered Friday & was being picked up Monday & the trencher was being delivered when the roller was picked up. If I missed my slot with the dozer guy, it would delay the project 3 weeks. Sometimes, ya gotta do, what ya gotta do, no matter how bad ya feel. Lucky for me, I've got a couple buddies retired from ATT that were just looking for something to do & they spelled me some & helped get the water hooked up.


Getting ready to go jump on the tractor & finish backfilling what I didn't get done while I had the trencher.

Sorry to hear about the car crash. I hope you (and your wife?) will be OK.

You actually have sewer out there?

Won't really be much sewer, but we will have a toilet, sink & roll in shower for our hunting buddies in wheel chairs to use 1-2 times a year. Out here, it just goes over the hill into the cattle pasture.

Re: Building Our New Shop


I'm curious about the poles: how deep? what wood? in concrete? I don't know anything about pole barns except what I've looked up online.

I don't know for sure, but based on another smaller pole barn I've got for a warehouse. 4x6 treated poles, with gravel in the bottoms of the holes. Then tamped in with dirt. We've got that gumbo clay around here, it dries like concrete. Our frost line is 42", so the poles will be at least that deep.

I'll be sure to take quite a few pictures as we go up with it. Hopefully in the next 2-3 weeks.

Laminating 2x6's together is the preferred method hear instead of on 4x6. Two major benefits are the "green" treat penetrates deeper in two the 2x6's so there is less untreated wood in the ground. The other is there is no twist and cracking like with on solid 4x6.

I've seen sites where they have 3, 2x6 laminated & sticking out of the ground a few feet, like they were going to add length after the concrete pour, but never have I seen around here full length laminated 6x
