While talking to the excavator operator about plans for the property.  Told him I was in the process of taking old barn down.  After he was done digging the holes, he offered to knock down the rest of the barn for me.  This is going to save me a lot of time.

Pole Barn

Rendering of pole barn that is going to be built. It is going to be 30′ x 48′ x 10′.  I designed this with the help of Punch Home Design and Landscape Professional.  I’m using this program to design our house also.  The program is extremely good and fairy easy to use.  The back wall of the barn is a plain solid wall, no windows.
