    My poor Baby John has to sleep in an unfinished pole barn, the back of which is our goat shed. I really need to get the lead out and wall that last bit in.

    Bad lighting, sorry:

    lean to works, car port can work. just getting and keeping the direct sun, rain, snow off a unit, can go a long ways. more so with rubber / plastic stuff.

    do you need a door? nope, start with a roof, then and a couple sides. maybe 3 sides. if it is short in length. and some were in the mix of that. will keep all sun/rain/snow off a unit.

    In winter mine sleeps in the garage where it is 40-45 degrees all winter. Makes for easy an start to plow snow.
    Summer time it camps outside under the stars next to my trailers.

    We moved here from WI where I had a nice pole barn for my tractor and attachments. I considered this barn almost a teardown because it had a dirt floor, water would run through it, and the barn was old and covered with crappy tin, not pole barn steel. But I put footings under it and graveled the whole floor so now it is not to bad. The tractor and garden tractor and all the attachments are in the bay on the right, the fifth wheel camper is in the center and the left stores my goose-neck trailer. It needs leaks fixed here and there, and would not warrant putting a concrete floor in it, but works good for storage. I really wanted to put roll up garage doors on it but decided to put those gates up that I used as siderails for my trailer when we moved. Actually it is fairly cool inside just getting out of the sun.

SO now I would like to make a new, single residence, for the tractor. I am looking to keep cost as low as possible so buying/ building a new barn/shed/building is not really in the budget right now, but I do have a lean too on the back side of the barn that I COULD finish into a "garage" but that is where all my implements and Grapple are kept. I also saw someone using a conex shipping container for a storage building but wow those things are going for $2500 to $3500 on CL. Just looking at how you guys are doing it and maybe even some unique pics of storage options.
