This makes the 4th barn I have built from recycled lumber, you just have to know a good source or
know the owner of the business that needs to let you get in on the good stuff first.
My woodworking buddies want to know the location too.
First it takes lots of nail pulling and taking your time taking them apart. And if you get lucky like I have with this find, Two of the skids were almost 4’ X 8’ with 1 X6 pine boards nailed on , with 2 X 4 ’s backing them , but I placed more in between. then I didn’t have enough 2 X 4’s , but most of the runners were pine 4 X 4’s
12’ to 14’ long, so I re-sawed the on the band saw, enough for the roof trusses and few extras.
I built this one and all the other ones in front of my shop ( using deck screws) then disassemble them , load the in the pick-up and drive it to it’s location (Their Home ).
The second photo shows extended beams for the roof to extend over the front and the door.
third photo is an idea from the girl it’s being built for, she wanted a sky light, so I built it to serve two
things, a ridge vent and sky light. I pays to pick up all the stuff factory’s toss out, like half sheets of white lexon plexglass. Heat it a little and shape it to the angle.
Last photo. Pine boards, 3/4 X 8” w X 10’, I cut a over lap joint on both edges like a ship lap.
Boards for the back of the shed, cause it was going to close to another building to get in between them later to paint
I don’t have it all completed on location yet, 2 – 4 hours a week away from the shop to work on stuff
isn’t enough time.
More photo’s to fallow, when complete, check in next month.
