Default The predator shed..

Dont know if i can do this, but id like to share the build process and pictures of my new barn. The barn is a 32 x 38 x 12 with a 32 x 10 lean to, heated floors, all steel exterior, and 2-10x10 overhead garage doors. All of which is happening the same time im 4,Linkin the front of my jeep the "predator"

Got my lot cleared, cut and removed 65 trees. Had a blast and got a winters worth of wood.


Poles in, and holes inspected, now for some bracing.


Poles leveled, starting to install perlins to help hold everything together



Got the headers up and anchored to poles, soon...ill be setting trusses.




Got tresses set, need some bracing before ths big storm..



Got the top plates tied to the barn for the lean to, or as inspector calls it..a porch..


Front view of the barn with the porch rafters in, prett much ready for steel roof.


Got the roof steel installed and the small gable sided.


Got the 2" foam down, and 5x10 steel mesh to hold all the in floor heat pex.


Got all 1500 feet of pex zip tied down...wow the blisters on my pointer fingers are sore. Had to put up a circus tent since of course..the day i set to pour cement..its going to rain ALL day.


Cement is poured, turned out pretty good. Not bad..threw two drains in too.



Now i can go to town sheeting the outside..two tone. Gotta love the Amish..dirt cheap prices on steel.

Side view

Back view

House side view

Front view with garage doors installed..ran short on z bar and j Channel..so here i wait.


Finally got my supplies..all done outside


Got a killer deal on 70 sheets of OSB...5$/sheet. Of course a craigslist find. Had to unload 1 at a time...


Got my insulation today..so figured i better get busy before winter gets here.


That's all for now. Need to get jeep done.

1. I have a crush on you. 2. I've been really wanting and needing a pole barn myself, would you be able to give a rough estimate of what that might cost a fellow? I live in the heart of Amish country if that matters. In fact, I called three different builders this spring and none called back.

I'm getting ready to put one up also, I'm very interested in how your going to do your heated floors. I have an outdoor burner I'd like to use to heat mine. I'm still exploring options.

I ran 5-300 foot loops of 1/2" barrier pex ran into 1" pvc long radius 90 where it comes through the cement floor. Then headered together, and piped to the boiler. But im only at the header stage, need the boiler yet, probably wont have it till mid winter. I also made my own water to water heat exchanger, similar to a side arm for your boiler to domestic hot water. Going to use it for hot water in the barn for the sink/hose.

And also did you use insulation between your pipe and the ground before you covered with cement?

But that is only a shell. Not all what you have going. It looks good.

Yeah..19..without cement, without in floor heat, without,insulation, without 2 tone, without overhead doors, without white steel ceiling, OSB, electrical, and all the site work.
All my interior perlins are 2x6, all my poles are 6x6, even around service doors.
Just saying..dont think its really apples to apples..more like apples to apple pie..

Great looking barn . What type of rolled insulation did you use on the walls ? Did you put anything between the outside stringers ? I need to do mine before winter.

I didn't do anything between outer stringers and 4x13ftx6"thick batts. On the roof u put a reflective insulation. I got all my insulation from Acme insulation..in downtown grand rapids.

according to your photos, you just put a bundle of lumber on the ground, presumably add some water, and voila, a pole barn grows up!!?? gotta love it.

i run one pump for my house, that covers HW and heat. im assuming you will need one to pump water to your barn and another to circulate the water through the floor.
