Default My 30x48 *lots of pictures*

Hello everyone, long time lurker first time poster.

I've got plenty left to do but I figured I'd post all my pictures so far for my barn.

This was just a bunch of grass to mow prior to the barn going up.

As of now, 07/17/2012, I just got the floor poured in and have started moving things back in. I'll try to get the pictures all in the right order.

Structure complete!




Now the work started for me, as I was doing the rest of it myself.

09/24/2011

Started the trench to run water and power (pictures started to get blurry here due to crappy phone)


Ditch for water and electric


Deck torn apart for access


Up against the foundation of the house


Most of the trencher work done


Underneath the splash board for the hydrants


From the inside


Two days later, we have a helluva rain storm and it's totally full of water...


After it dried a bit, I drilled through the foundation, installed a PVC sleeve, and then the water line...






End of the sleeve, at first turn


Sealed up the foundation before covering it up


Busted through the wall in the garage to run the wiring through the conduit...


Started hanging the PVC for the electric...


Got the water ran from inside the basement over to the corner of the foundation




Finished running the water line, hooked up the hydrants, and then bury them (after successful test)




Here is the inside where the electric sub panel is going, after the conduit is ran...

Finished up under the deck, just need to bury, grade, and replace the decking...


Ran an extra 2" for communications... will finish running what I need at a later time, but it's ready to go when that time comes.


Say goodbye, finish buying conduit...




It then sat for a couple of weeks while we went on a family vacation. The electrician then came and we got the sub panel installed. I ran a cheater outlet underneath it for temporary use over the last several days have started running electric.

Trench is settling some, too



Panel setup as I'm working on it....





First outlet (mounted on rafter for garage door opener). Successful test!



Last night I put two lights in the back on one curcuit (had planned on three but it was pretty bright as it was). Then hung up three in the middle, and one over top of the walk in door.









Now that I gather the pictures it seems like it was a lot easier than it was. I assure you it was a lot of work with this one man, sometimes two/one ladder operation! Funny how that works.



-------------------- ^^^ This was all September 2011-November 2011


The rest of this is June 2012...

After getting my crap out of it that piled up over the last year:



Thursday:





Friday (really early)







Of course the daughter's hand print:

Very impressive. You look like you are enjoying the trenching experience. What are you going to use the shop for?

A big garage. Parking for my truck, tractor, extra cars, space to work on them, storage, etc. We have an attached garage but it's barely big enough to park in.

Thank you guys for the kind words, this is a cool forum.

Very nice AJE, also like the drive through. I'm having a drive way done but my concrete guy says it's too hot here to do a good pour.

A couple things I notice. 1, you must not live in a cold climate. How deep (or shallow) did you run the water line?

2, Those "piers" (or what ever they are called). Were they just set in a hole and back filled? They look loose in one pic and then tight once the bottom board is attached. They are concrete, correct??

Nice building. Only thing you may regret is not having a floor drain. I know I do.

The water line is 36" deep, which is acceptable here in Ohio.

The posts are Perma-Columns and are buried to 40" if I recall correctly. You are correct that they were loose in the first picture, that was just after all the post holes were dug and they were dropped in. They took the levels and strings to them once the base board started getting attached. They rest on a concrete base in the ground then it is packed gravel the rest of the way up.

I'm trying to get things moved back in there now and I'm looking at building some shelves.

In the future I might want to insulate it, and I'm wondering if I should put some foam board in between the girts before putting a shelf up. I would really like to spray foam the whole thing but 1. I don't have all the electrical done 2. I might want to change something, and 3. I don't want to spend that much money right now.

If I can but a few 4x8' sheets to cover up the area where I want to build the shelves, I would imagine that wouldn't hurt later on if I do want to spray it.

Thanks for the explanation. I was curious about those as well. Being from earthquake country, that installation wouldn't fly for much other than a fence but your whole barn design was elegantly simple. Wish I had room, I'd build something like it for myself.

Very nice. What pitch is your roof? I am thinking of doing same size barn but use scissor trusses on the back 20ft for a lift in future.

Great looking build man. I didn't read all the words but are You planning on making rooms inside at all? I'm in the very prelim stages of wanting to remove my current run down shop for a larger size like yours. Looking for ideas and such.
