Default Tractor shed / shop expansion

This project has been long planned, and finally took shape. My tractor(s) have lived outside their entire lives, but we are all getting older, and like a little comfort. I finally settled on the location, which is the west side of my little shop. The new shed is 20 feet wide and 36 feet long. Pole style, reclaimed tin, dirt/gravel floor. This whole project is budget minded, the only new material used was for the poles/purlins and nailers for the roof. Even the rafters are reclaimed wood I beams.
I took lots of pictures during the build, so this is picture heavy. I still have to tin the sides, but will likely finish that next summer, same as the floor.

I will apologize for the twisted pictures, I still am not sure why they want to rotate. I would attempt to fix them, but I have to upload them one at a time thanks to my "amazing" internet service.

1 - flagged area mostly to see if I could work around the new building and still get to the other building.
2 - Buddy came over with his Bobcat, I rented the auger.
3 - Set up the batter boards, squared everything up.
4 - setback - old Bobcat, new attachment
5 - Made a run early the next morning and got the correct connectors for the Bobcat.

Living the country life

Learning boils down to "Repetition or the avoidance of pain", some people learn by doing, some by watching and some have to pee on the electric fence. - Norm W.

And a man's foes shall be they of his own household
