I didn't know where to post this or even if I should post this. But its what I'm up to at the moment so I thought what the heck.
We need another out building for goats and equipment and whatnot. I'm laid off at the present time so I decided to build a small pole barn. I'm using rough cut hemlock lumber from a local two man sawmill. When you buy this type of lumber a 2x4 is really 2in. by 4in. its green, not kiln dried, and heavy as all get out. But using rough cut hemlock is much much cheaper than buying from a retail lumber yard. And I like supporting the small local business.
The building is 18ft wide and 24ft long. So far the only tools Ive used are a post hole digger,spud bar, hammer, axe, sledgehammer,chainsaw,level,square,chalk line,and a tape measure. The only power tool is the chain saw.
Ive got 2x8x18 foot planks ordered to span the roof. Its going to be a job getting them up there.
Im no carpenter by a long shot, is the building in square,,,,,no its not,,,is it close,,,,not really , but it is close enough to be water tight and last longer than I will, so its good to go.
Some 4x6x15 footers, fun moving them around single handed.
View from the front, run in door for livestock will be on the left.
Thanks for looking.
