    Some of you may have read the thread about my henhouse, but I also had another project going on that I just finished up.

    This is my gambrel barn, with a full loft for straw and a lean to area for raising hogs. I love old barns and I needed a place to raise some hogs as well as a place to let my dogs come in out of bad weather....so, I built this, actually I started it almost 2 years ago and just now got it finished up. I can also park my big farm tractor inside, but usually I keep it in my other barn.

    The reason it took me so long is because I didn't want to go in debt for it.....I paid for it as I could afford it.

    I hope you like it as much as I do.

    That looks great. Our barn is over 100 years old. Not in such good shape.

    I grew up on my grandfather's farm, playing in the hay loft. I want a barn so badly! It looks wonderful.

    Quote:The hayloft was a lot of fun to play in. My brother fell through the "hay chute" in ours when he was about 4 years old. He fell head first on the concrete floor below, lucky it didn't kill him.
