Cool to see them hitting the pipe feeder. Keep it full and they will make your place home.

Had a little bit of an upgrade performed on the front entry gate to the property today. They did a fine job.



The sunset yesterday was a spectacular sight if I do say so myself. I canít wait until we can live out there!

Thanks Jeff. I wasn't big on giving the place a name...I just call it "the property". That being said, since seeing the metal art piece added to the gate, the wife has assigned the place a name. We now own "Trinity Acres".

Looks cool, congrats. Next thing when you get out there, will be solar gate openers. We went a long time without them but after you get them you wonder why you waited so long.

Iím sure automated gate openers will be in the works eventually when we actually move out there. Iíll need to research them because those 2 swing gates are HEAVY! I estimate they weigh in around 300+ lbs each.

Congrats on the new place, and bees! We just placed our own bees Saturday, wanted to find someone with more hives and place on our land but didn't bother too much with finding folks that wanted to do that. Either way, it will help on our ag exempt as well.

Default We finally closed on the new property and couldnít be happier!!

So after months and months of research between a weld-up/bolt-up red iron or wood framed shop and pricing both we decided to go with the wood pole barn. Winsett Barn Co out of Oklahoma treated me right and did a fantastic job on the build. I wanted to go bigger but between momma and my checkbook it will have to do....since it is UP!

Specs on building:
30x50 enclosed with 12í sidewalls and 4/12 pitch roof
30x20 extra carport overhang
2 10x10 insulated paneled garage doors w/openers (didnít want roll-ups)
2 walk through aluminum doors and 2 windows
Went with the heavier 26g metal on roof and trim and 29g on everything else

Iíll do some sub-grade plumbing and then have the slab poured. Concrete will consist of a 1í beam around the perimeter, 3/8Ē rebar on 18Ē grid throughout and Iíll also have an apron poured under the carport area. Electric, lights, gutters, plumbing, etc to come later. Gonna also have a lean-to off the right (south) side added down the road to park the tractor/trailer, etc.

It turned out well and these guys sure donít mess around. It was freakin HOT last week but they completed it, start to finish in less than 3 days.

Here is a short video of the progression. Trinity Acres now has a shop.

Itís been awhile since Iíve updated the progress at Trinity Acres.

In addition to finally getting the neighbors fenced out, some more dirt work and another culvert installed, weíve made a lot of progress on the shop.

The concrete was poured and gutters with french drains and catch basins have been installed. My son and I wired the shop lights and electric and epoxy coated the floor in the shop area ourselves.

We found a builder we like and contracted to build out the efficiency apartment-living quarters inside. Itís turn key right up to the ďmove in readyĒ phase to include septic, HVAC, cabinets, granite countertops, paint-trim, appliances and all.
Theyíve completed a lot of work already. Thursday was spray foam insulation day. 2Ē of closed cell in the shop ceiling and 1Ē of closed cell in the walls. We went with open cell inside the apartment interior, non parameter walls and pink fiberglass batt in the ceiling joists.
A couple of pics and a short video. I canít believe how much more structural strength the closed cell spray foam made to the building itself! Itís sturdy, almost like concrete and has really dampened the sound too.

Moving right along
