    Ok so I've built three of these so far, and when I posted the first one several of you wanted plans. I've made some modifications from the original in that I added quite a bit of extra pitch to the roof. Looks better, and drains better.

    It's 8" out of square horizontally, 4" out of plum, and has an 1 1/2" drop in the center of the ridge line.

    This is not a tractor, though it could easily be made into one if you so desired. The wheels and sub frame you see is how I move it when I deliver it.

    Looks very nice. A lot of thought and work went into that design. It is hard enough to build something straight. But to purposely build something crooked takes talent.
    Any more of these in the future?
