Default Barndo build vlog

asically, Phase 0 of this build is the prep work necessary to actually do the build. That includes site selection, clearing, and lot's of planning.

The end of Phase 0, marks the beginning of Phase 1, which is dirt work and slab construction. I am my own General Contractor on this project, so I learn as I go. Since I am a certified BOE/CAM at Raytheon, this is actually pretty easy, and I save 10-15% on the cost of hiring a GC.

I am doing videos, instead of photos for two reasons:

1. I suck at still photography.

2. I have stories to tell about the family farm.

I am learning about videos, namely get a camera mount that does not squeak

Phase 1 complete - slab poured and ready to run power to the site.

The only hiccup on the pour was the Concrete company shorted us on the first load by 3-4 yards, and they were an hour and a half late. The extra load for the missing concrete made us finish even later. The crew did not leave until 11:30 p.m.

Default Floor plan

Here is a rough diagram of the floor plan. I used an on-line tool to draw it. Once I figured it out, it was pretty easy to use. If you use it to draw a floor plan, PM me, and can talk you through some of gotchas.

If you want suggestions. I would put the fridge on the outside wall and open the kitchen into the living room.
Maybe a bar between the living room and kitchen. Something to think about. Looks good so far!

I would leave the opening from kitchen to living room also. Make the second b r the master since the bath room Is next to second br. Put a shower in the wash room next to washer and dryer.

The whole kitchen layout is up for grabs. I have two sets of kitchen cabinets that I will re-use, but I don't know how they fit in that space. I actually put a second drain in the kitchen, so I move the sink to a different location.

I am pretty sure I have settled on a contractor to construct the metal building. I am supposed to talk to him this afternoon.
