    Default Pole barn started

    Well my wife and I planned to build a pole barn to store the tractor and other small stuff.
    Size will be 16X 27. Guess the reason for the odd size is the area used to have a rotary saw mill sitting on the 10 pylons. We planned to just pull the pylons out and use the same holes for the posts.
    Guess the big difference between most of the pole barn projects here is we will be milling all the lumber on site with the portable saw mill. So all we have cut thus far are the 11 poles and some 2x4s. Cut from poplar and are 6x6 12'-16' long.

    We end cut the poles with wood preserve and after pulling all the pylons we noticed some of the poles are not in line

    After some tough starts we got all the poles installed and braced.

    Back hoe to the rescue . After some digging we have them all lined up . Less then a day into the build and still married. Just!

    As a married man of 29+ years, I wholeheartedly agree with never building a new house to test the marriage... Pole barn? Good Luck !

    Seriously, looks like you're off to a nice start, knowing a plan never survives first contact. Hope it goes smoothly from here on.

    Cheers

    That barn will make one heck of a dog house if you get into hot water with the wife. Make it nice. You might have to move in. LOL

    Nice. No roof overhang on the tall side?

    Looks like some fine slop you are working in there, haha.

    I envy your sawmill.

    nO OVERHANG ON THE TALL SIDE . Once the batten and boards are installed the metal roof will over hang 3-4 ". The plan on the tail ends is to extend the trusses and build a lean to.
    If you have the lumber to justify a mill then get one. The cost of lumber is going up every day .
    I had a long list of things I wanted to build so I took the plunge and thank full I did.
    Today will be cutting off the poles and start to close her in.
