Oh, and here is my basement shop were the CJ was restored but now is in the garage covered up for the winter. Most all my mechanical and electrical work gets done in the basement where it's heated and close to the beer, air compressor, welder, office, sandblaster, powder coating, shop press and all the wood working equipment you can think of.

This is my shop. 30x40 with 16 ft side walls. Heated, insulated, enclosed office and throne room. Side x side fridge and poker table. 80 gallon compressor, Miller 252, torch, and 3 roll aways. Nice place to spend my weekends and hide from the wifey with my buddies. There is always something in there being worked on and they are mostly not mine.

Code around were I live says you have to sink the poles first. And back fill, then you can pour the concrete around the poles.

with my 10"X10" poles I had each one sunk in a 3' (36") hole with the poles resting on concrete pad. Then back fill with DIRT no concrete.

My Barn is 32'X56' poles every 8'

No kit, you make the bows yourself. The plastic is the spendy part cause it is green house plastic. Will last 7 to 10 years before it needs replaced. Structure will last forever.

Check out this

It can be as long as your property. just order the plans from Stimson, About $20.00

That is really neat. I will have to remember it. I'm sure code where I live now would not allow it.

With prices being what they are these days, you're right! We used it to feed our horses...we go through 1.5 bales that size per month...they're 800lb bales.

My attached garage after a nine month rebuild. Drywall, insulation, paint, epoxy floors, and installation of home built cabinets. Except for some help with painting and the epoxy from my wife, I did all of the work. It was a great excuse to purchase a drywall lift and a few other construction related tools I didn't have. It's not as clean and tidy now and several more stationary tools have been moved in since the photos were taken. I still have some trimwork to do as well as run my airlines and install air hose reels, but it's mostly complete.

I'd be embarassed to show photos of my 24'x45' pole barn. It's stuffed almost to the gills with tractors, a '69 Chevy pickup project, my CJ6, pallet racks full of Jeep parts/engines/tcases/transmissions/etc. One of my priorities this spring is to make it a workable space again and get rid of some things that I might use someday, but probably will never get to.

My place to work on the CJ is also where I make my living. I started building the shop in October of 1998 and moved into it in December of 2000. Built it pretty well myself while still working my regular job. It measures 30' x 60'.

Pole barn was first... built it for boat storage. When I traded "the boat" for a Jeep, I enclosed it. Formed around the 6 X 6s. Slab is about 6" thick around the edges for load-bearing capabilities. The rest is ~4". I wish I had enclosed the eves. I get all kinds of dust in there.
