Timber Frame Barn Remodel #9: A little clean up goes a long way

08-07-2018 02:43 PM by PoohBaah | 11 comments »

I had a little extra vacation time build up and decided to make it a long weekend. Vacation though it was not. I went and borrowed a friend’s dump trailer and went at cleaning the old hay loft out. There was old hay and straw that mice had chewed threw the twine all over the place up stairs and I knew that I wanted to get rid of it before the new siding was in place. Well it took 3 full loads of the dump trailer that is roughly 8’x14×3’. And man I was a tired pup af...

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #8: Seeing the difference

07-17-2018 03:47 PM by PoohBaah | 6 comments »

This last weekend I was able to put a solid 4 hours into the project and it is kind of nice to be able to actually see a noticeable difference. I removed the entire lover level of siding on the back side of the barn. I started slow trying to salvage what I could and damn is that frustrating. I have no idea how those guys on TV make it look so easy. I am trying to salvage enough of the good siding from the exterior to line my wood shop with then all is said and done. Yet it is a monumental tas...

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #7: Really got a view now

07-10-2018 03:32 PM by PoohBaah | 12 comments »

So I am waiting on the glue to dry on my mallet for the swap and I decided that I am ready (not sure I really am or not) to open up the back wall where there use to be a sliding door that had been nailed shut and a bunch of rot that needed replaced. So last night I cam hope from the current shop and went to work removing this section. Now you can see the view I have. Beautiful personally. I need to reinforce the vertical beams since they have a bit of wear. Then I am going to run new ...

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #4: Then there was less below and more above

05-07-2018 04:35 PM by PoohBaah | 9 comments »

Well we are currently between swaps right now. The box swap went really well and the mallet/hammer swap doesn’t start up for a few more weeks. Also things in the fields are going well and nearly all the cattle are moved to pasture. Even with all this going on I actually had a few free hours to get back into my barn and start cleaning. I started a fire in my burn barrel and also in my fire pit. So by dividing and conquering I was able to make some pretty decent headway. You can see in th...

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #3: Slow, very slow progress

04-03-2018 04:45 PM by PoohBaah | 7 comments »

Well, it has been 6 months since the last update and well not much has changed. Between fall harvest, winter and now calving season coming early there was not much progress on the old barn but we are starting to gain some momentum now. I have been in contact with a local guy that is going to put the new roof on for me. I was in Menards on Saturday to pick up supplies for a new set of back steps and while loading the lumber I noticed they had 45 sheets of 12’ white steel in the discount ...

Workshop #1: Build

02-27-2018 05:32 AM by RevJVegas | 5 comments »

So I figure what better to blog first but the actual construction of my workspace. While having our patio upgraded, I had them set and pour me a slab in a form I’d already setup for my 10×12 space. I got my plans from cheapsheds.com for the gambrel barn shed. Sure I could have probably designed it up myself, but I liked the guy’s videos and it was less than $10 so I figured it’d at least be a good starting point; and it was. The big thing for me was that at th...

Fixing a knot hole that got sucked up in the planer with a christmas tree

12-06-2017 05:50 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

Watch it on YouTube or read about it below I am working on another barn door for a client, and this door has created a few challenges for me. The client really loves the look of the gray weathered wood and wanted it on both sides of the door. The only problem is that most barn wood is only gray on one side. The other side that faces the inside of the barn is brown because it never sees the weather.So I decided to create barn wood veneer so I could veneer both sides of the door using th...

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #1: Barn Workshop The Beginnings

09-05-2017 04:27 PM by PoohBaah | 8 comments »

Three years ago my wife and I were gifted an acre of land to build a home upon. Included in this acre was this barn. It is a good sized barn at 40’ x 50’ with a hay loft upstairs that is massive and it already has a concrete floor on most of it. Now it has been a hot topic with in the family of what we should do with this barn. My wife’s grandmother hates it for one reason or another and feels it needs torn down. I on the other hand see all the potential within and ju...

Around The Shop.. #2: 1200sqft Barn Shop Setup ..part 1

09-09-2016 01:54 AM by Airframer | 11 comments »

Well.. It has been a while since my last blog post and wanted to catch everyone up on what’s going on around the shop. In February I purchased a house just outside of town on 1.17 acres of land. The house needed (still does) a lot of work but it came with a 1200sqft pole barn with a loft! The loft is about half the size of the down stairs so it has roughly 1800sqft of usable space in it. This is a serious upgrade from the 2 car garage I had in my last rental and heaps better ...

Building a Goat Barn #18: The Hobbit Door

12-10-2014 03:01 PM by David Bareford | 6 comments »

At long last, the only thing remaining was the door. Now, as I have mentioned earlier, my daughter Eleanor (10 yrs old) has read The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, and she really wanted me to put a round door on the barn like a hobbit hole. Well, as luck would have it, I found a free Craigslist posting for a company that had what appeared to be a side of a massive construction spool: it was a huge circle, 7-1/2 feet in diameter and 1-1/2” thick, made of of 1” x 6” pin...
