Yep, I usually start another project before finishing my current project! Will post more pictures of the shops.Wait, so you are building a goat barn, while ALSO building a new shop, directly next to your older existing shop? This just all got way more interesting lol.
More pics of the shop buildings! I'm not sure about the picture rotation but maybe you could try rotating them in your phone before uploading.
Realizing its already built but for next time or others out there, with a 15' span you do not need center posts. The roof load will transmit to the outside walls so there is no vertical load on the center, especially with very little snow load.
Your barn looks great and it looks like quality construction!
Thank you. We decided to put the additional 6x6's mainly for looks..gotta keep the wife happy.
Will echo what others have said about condensation. I built an open on all 4 sides tractor shed about ten years ago. Did not know what I was doing. It is a little overbuilt and plenty sturdy. It has survived one decent snow/ice event (very rare here) as well as some big winds and storms. But, not knowing any better I put tin over purlins. There are many days that it rains in there from condensation. All my equipment has marks from drip lines. Most of the purlins are water stained. A few have gotten soft.
All future shops, sheds, barns or carports will have some sort of sheathing with tar paper and then metal.
Yeah, I ended up using plywood and some synthetic roofing felt that my neighbor gave me he had leftover from a jobsite. He's a GC and that's what they're using on new builds around here.
