Finally putting more barn up.  Here's the latest on the building:

Finally putting up a bent, the camera was rolling.

Sorry about the slow updates but here are some more on the barn.  Was in the woods this past weekend harvesting timbers for the barn.

It's been awhile since I updated this thread so here is what's been going on with the barn.  This past weekend I was playing logger harvesting timbers for the barn.  There are also some layout discussions I will post that were requested by some folks on YouTube.







So the firewood is running low, winter came back to the northeast and I like my shop to be warm.  So I've been kicking around the idea of building a waste oil heater for a few years and decided to run with it.  With all the waste oil I keep in barrels from the farm around here I have plenty of fuel.  So I built this thing and couldn't be happier with it.  I ran it for 14 hours strait Saturday and used 4 gallons of waste oil.  My uninsulated shop, sitting in a windy hayfield, stayed in the 70's all day once it came up to temp.

Well I've been talking about building my barn, so I'll show you what I'm working with to get this thing going. I'm very lucky to have a good chunk of land that's PAID for and separated from the lot my house sits on.  If it ever came down to it I could sell the house and build again with this idea of self reliance figured into the equation.

Don't mind me griping at the wheelers, they like to tear up my fields.  Nothing like hitting ruts in the summer on a little tractor taking hay!
