Default New year Time to start a Barndo

Our barndo build starts tomorrow. I have been heading towards for almost a year and a half. I am having the slab and metal building done and will do most of the rest myself.

The equipment and concrete form material start arriving tomorrow.

This is our starting point

Awesome - looking forward to following along. We started not too long ago on a 40x66 barn but weather/holidays have been slowing it down. Is this the only plan you have for the job? It's lacking some dimensions to locate underground plumbing/electric.

I like the floor plan and plan on starting one soon. What is the eave height and approximate cost for the building without the build out? Are the outside foundation areas covered?

14' eve at the house, the shop floor drops 15", giving it a 15'3" eve. The lot slopes enough that I had to lower the shop floor enough to be able to get in and out of it.

It gives us 2000 ft house and 1040 ft shop. Not shown is the man cave that will be above part of the shop. man cave will be approx 280 ft

No, we are building outside of Bertram. We moved out of Eddy. Thanks for the question. Now I will remember to change my profile.

You're supposed to trim the weeds before you pour! Kidding, assume that is a vibrator of some sort?

Thanks for sharing the cost. I'm following!

They were still finishing at 5 this evening. One corner of the slab was in the shade from 10 am and is setting slowly. This crew finished another pour after 11 p.m. Friday. Drove to my place took a nap and started my slab before 4 a.m.

I will get better pics tomorrow. Slab is 3060 sqft. The shop is 15" lower than the house. I think there is just over 600 sqft in porches. My contractor is James Burkett. He has been great to work with. If he tells you something, you can count.on it. I understand sometimes he is very busy and can be hard to book. He is based.in Liberty Hill.

Started up. it should be turned over to me in about 1 1/2 weeks. I will do framing and finish out. I also intend to install the septic. Progress will slow down. I am looking forward to trimming it out, ideas are starting to come together on interior finishes.

The weather has slowed down the building crew. We got started on our part this weekend. WE managed to get within 6" of deep enough before we needed a ram.

After we finished the septic tank hole we moved on to the lateral field. We managed to get all the lines dug and most of the pipe and gravel
