We have cold water only and use a cool looking 1950's porcelain steel kitchen sink and full under cabinet to clean up in. Furnace is also an old house unit, natural gas so someday I should get a small water heater. I don't want to use a bunch of my electrical service on an electric heater.

Oh Bill, I understand why you noted about the redwood fence!!!

No roof vents John, as the ceiling isn't in yet. Once that finally gets done I will probably cut in gable end vents.

Doug, I have a 5 gallon 110 water heater. I really don't use it much. I initially bought it to give the horses bath's.

Burt Monroe, the fella they made the movie "The World's Fastest Indian" movie about, had a lemon tree in his side yard. He pee'd on it daily.. so frequently he had a neighbor kid pee on it for him when he went to Bonneville to race his motorcycle........

Re: Pole Style Building vs. Stick Building

My recollections of movie scenes and movie lines reminds me, ironically, of a line from another movie:

"I seem to be able to retain all these facts, but putting them to any useful purpose is a different matter." Charles Morse, from "The Edge" 1997.

Thanks, Ron, I may have to check into a 110V version one of these days!

Re: Pole Style Building vs. Stick Building

The one in my shop is 20 gallon (I think) and it's 110. I go it a Lowes or Homey Depot.

Yeah, it looks like this pole barn might just happen afterall.

The excavators got the pad for the pole barn leveled off today. Good timing.. we haven't had any precipitation for months. A little moisture is a good thing.

With any luck the GC will start drilling holes this week or early next week. Materials due to arrive next Tuesday.

I've got a build thread started over at The Garage Journal ... but I'll keep you guys up to date.

Now that I have drawings from Lester Buildings.... I created a CAD Model of the Barn. Creating the model is kind of like pre-building the barn, really helped me to understand the way "Lester" designs and builds their barns.


I asked them to design cross bracing in the trusses that would still allow for me to build some lofts for storage. Their design is pretty slick. Barn is rated for 116 mph winds.
Getting excited.... looking forward to the build.
