Your T-111 is really popular for many but IF they ever put their foot through it, you will regret it. THICK Plywood would be better. You mentioned two by sixes inside,for nailers? Just make sure there is no place inside for a hoof or leg to get snagged in.
    I have 2 horses now. if I started 8' x 12' it would be 8' deep, with a 12' opening...

    I agree 8' is too small opening.

    I am planning on T-111 sides, lined with cheap 2x6 inside the "kick zone" and a metal roof. What Pitch? How big does the header need to be? I assume I put a header across every set of poles, and then run rafters down across the headers.

    I'm certain I am making some faulty assumptions, and forgeting something as well.

    Any help and/or advice is greatly appreciated...

    Thanks in advance,

    David

    Hi there MFW.
    I built this 20x28 ft equipment shed a few years ago. There might be something you can use for your project.

    -equipment-shed-1-jpg-equipment-shed-2-jpg-equipment-shed-3-jpg-equipment-shed-4-jpg

    Conventional pole shed construction. Height: 8ft in rear, 9 ft in front. The large beams are doubled 2x12s and 2x10s nailed and glued. Piers are 18"x18"x18" concrete. Metal sides and roof are 28 gauge R-panel from Home Depot.

    Good luck.

    David, Here is a layout of something similar I am thinking about. I put posts in rear wall at 4' spacing for 2 reasons - 1. to better support the inner kick wall. 2. To sue as rafter support without a header system. Build front height tall enough to get the tractor under & loader to reach rear wall for clean out. No less than 2' slope (I prefer 3' slope = 3:12 pitch). The yellow dotted lines would be the rafters, probably 2X10s. The 3' walls at the front will help racking in strong wind, also give a little more wind break inside if wind is blowing into the open front.

    I don't know about VA but out here I can buy prefabs like this cheaper than I can build from scratch.

    We have had this shed so long now that I forgot what it looked like. I mentioned that it had a lean-to roof. Obviuosly it doesn't. It has more than one post in the front. It's not anchored to the ground (although it should be) and survived 84 MPH winds. When we moved 5 years ago we paid to have this shed moved with us. It's extremely heavy and sturdy.

    Dennis,

    That is REALLY close to what I am planning... My opening will be to the East and on the 12' side, not the 16' (but I could change that). Prevailing winds on my place are North/South, and the driveway is on the East side, so... East opening...

    On the South side I will build a feed/tack room with a normal human door....
