>You could put a lotta motorcycles in that. I'm just sayin'.
Hell yes you could. It's 12" wide and 24' long with a 10' ceiling height at the front and down to 8' at the back. I found the plans online from ..Colorado's Dept of Ag IIRC. Frankly it's a very well designed simple little structure. Cost was very reasonable and after digging the footings (yeah, 6 of them by fucking hand. Fun fun fun.) it went up pretty easy. Just got the rest of the rafters up today.
The plans do not allow a width greater than 12' without a second row of support beams but .. 12' is wide enough for a garage. I will be building a 2nd one for that purpose in the spring. With a concrete floor.
>So I just looked back in the blog and you seem to be done with the house -- so you just figured, "Fuck it, rest is for the dead" and started immediately on a barn? (What I mean is -- I cannot imagine doing this in December without pressing need, but then again what do I know.)
Alpacas gotta sleep somewhere ; )
It's a bitch but they need some shelter. As of today it's all framed out. The siding is all metal.. screws down fast. Should get it up in another day or so.
