Come on, those aren't real barns. LOL Here you go.
My thoughts exactly. When I saw the title of the thread my mind immediately jumped to those hay barns I helped my Father build way back yonder. So my "pole barn" has poles, and repurposed lumber, with dimensions to match the scrape material I have. I put the poles in the ground a couple years back, but then had thievery problems in the area, so I held off. I have decided to proceed and have some ideas for locking it down.
My plan is to fully enclose (not sure what salvaged material I will find for that yet). The only entrance will be a big pipe metal gate wide enough to drive the tractor in. Gate will be regular install with hinges, etc but I plan to have a couple of these on both ends.
In addition, I will place my cell camera on one of the poles at that entrance and hopefully get a picture as they angle grinder thru the thick chain.
Still a lot of details to work out. We are soon to move my Mom into assisted living. When that happens my brother will sell her house place, barn, etc. In a "machinery shed" there are lots of spare parts, bolts, huge vices, etc. I plan to move these to my new shed. Also, have an ugly 30 ft office trailer on site that I may park flush up against the shed so that entrance to it is thru the locks describe above. Not sure how to make that work yet.
