This is my little two :wh: barn.

In it, I board my beauty and beast together in hopes that they'll mate.

I'll keep checking, and report back when they do. :popcorn:

Here is a picture of one of my shelf units I put these on each side of my pole barn I have enough room for 12 horses on and under one shelf and 18 on or under the other I only use the top shelf for big bulky items that I can fit in my Farmall H tractor bucket. The 604 and 633 get used frequently so they are in the shop and the 701 is kept in my other garage so if I lose a building I won't lose my entire collection.

Just remember you asked for this. Actually this was a horse ranch before my 86 year old mother got too old to take care of the 15 horses she used to have. By the way along with my heart problem a couple months ago, she had a stroke about a month ago and is still in the hospital. I really need to sell some of this stuff and it's at www.cowboysredhorses.com

Anyway here are quite a few pictures and I do have plenty of room yet but I need to thin the herd. If you thought Matt's shop was big this will blow your mind. Thee ones stored inside normally have tarps over them also. There are four under tarps in my main shop( the picture with the roll-around tool tray).

What do you mean, used to be a horse ranch?

Looks like it still is...Lynn's :wh: Ranch.

You've still got a whole lot of space left to fill up there. :)

Well we do still have two horses left plus my 15. :ROTF: That barn is 210 ft. long and @48 ft. wide but there is an indoor arena and a big tack room with horse stalls on one side.

Well it is a huge mess right now. Will hopefully get a day or two this summer to pull everything out and reorganize the chaos.

We keep our tractors in the basement, but slowly running out of room......currently working on a shelving system to store more.

      I have a small problem with my garage being a little too full of tractors every fall. This year my plan is to build a rack big enough to store 4 tractors on the floor with room for 4 more overhead. 

      If anyone on Redsquare has anything like that already in service, pictures would be greatly appreciated.

      Need some recommendations on a new shed. I'm looking at putting up one of these metal buildings - I might have posted this link sometime back to the manufacturer's website, but here it is again:

      http://www.carolinacarportsinc.com/configurator/index

      What I'd like to do is put up a building with two garage doors. There would be space equal to the width of the garage doors between the garage doors and the opposite sides of them. This would be on the long side of the building and descriptively is like this:

      wall-space-door-space-door-space-wall

      The idea is to put tractors, junk, pop-up camper, firewood, etc, to the extent possible out of the garage door lanes and that would be to either side of the two garage doors and the space between them.

      So I have some questions:

      - How tall should the building be? Nothing bigger than a 1/2 or 3/4 ton truck would in it.

      - How deep (as you drive into it) is desirable? 20ft, 24ft - looking for some reasonable depth such that I can pull in a vehicle and yet not be so crowded that I can't work around it or even move a tractor around the end of it?

      - how wide should be garage doors be? I'd like to get a full size truck through them without being so narrow that I'd smash a mirror.

      - If you look at the website, they offer vertical or horizontal siding. I'm thinking vertical. Don't know if this is better for looks or strength or both. What you do think?

      - I'd like to put this building on a concrete pad. Question is - how thick and what type - rebar or concrete with fiber or both.

      This is just in the planning stage - not sure I'll do it, but I want to figure out what experience others have with their garages, and lessons learned from theirs you can share.

      Hey guys wanted to get some opinions on my upcoming detatched dream garage build. I am planning to have 24x28 garage built for my hobbie shop(wheel horses and cars). My question is what kind of foundation should i do. I am in northern indiana and have been told i can build on a monolithic slab(thickened structural slab on grade) or traditional footings with a floating slab. My local building code allows both types for detached structures.  I  prefer footings since they get below the frost line but they are significantlying more expensive. Does anyone have any past experience with a monolithic slab foundations. I don't want to cheap out on my foundation, but if i go with footings I will have give up some other features I wanted.

      Hello All,
      I ordered an Amish built 20x20 garage/workshop combo back in October and it was delivered and setup today. I can't officially move in with heat and power until AFTER its inspected... but my Nova needed a warm spot for the winter and snuck in. The Wheel Horse Acres sign was made by my father and I thought it looked cool on the front for a photo op. It won't stand up to the weather so it will be hung inside. I can't wait to start turning wrenches on some of the projects that have been honestly neglected around here!

      Happy New Year to All!!

      Tony

      I'm always enthralled to look through the pictures that everybody posts as they work on, or restore, or modify their horses.  Look at not just the horses and the ideas, but also the shop space it's being done in.   I've worked outside, I've worked in borrowed space, Home made space, and now finally ... Since I moved in 2010 ... I have my own shop.
       
      Thought that I would share with you all, my space ... Now it's still under construction ... I have more drywall, more Lighting, and more wiring to do. I'm also planning to add to the shop this spring, going 15 feet out the side, to provide places to Store, to do the really nasty tear downs, as well as a media blasting Room and maybe a clean Room for painting small parts? Not sure yet.
       
      Anyway Onto Photos!
