Thanks for the additional input. Has anyone sold their place with a barn included?

I have a quote for the 40x60, but I just don't need the extra space for the cost. Once you go from 30 to 40 foot span, the price jumps considerably, and the concrete... holy $hit. Why is concrete so expensive? Its just sand, gravel and water!!

Rippem, how do your sliding doors work for you? Do they seal well as far as wind and rain on the edges? How is the ease of movement?

Brian, just got the concrete poured on friday, Awsome job!!!!! You should come out and check it out someday. Got to wait for the concrete to cure before the epoxy, 28 days. Dont forget to tell them I sent you, I need that $100.00 finders fee now...lol
In our area, you will get your money back every day.

excellent

yes, very well

easy. I throw a couple gobs of light waterproof grease in the track once in a while. This older unit has nice heavy-duty trucks with a relatively wide wheel.

It's actually close to the same price as wood anymore. This 32X53 ft monster is being built on my mother in laws property. Two floors all concrete with radiant heat in both of the floors Will make a nice place to keep my AT in the years to come

don't forget the rebar, that is the expensive part....

i also agree with somebody above, spend a little more on the front (make it look like the house if possible) and you will get a little more out of it, some don't like the look of a metal building behind there house, even if they are going to use it...

yes rebar not the wire mesh, I built a 26 x 38 x 10.5 for 12k doing everything myself Except for the concrete which I hired out.
My Relator told me the a large storage building too close the home can hurt resale, unless its tastfully designed and the house still dwarfs it.

Two words, China, Iraq. We are shipping that stuff by the boat loads to both places. Oh yeah re-bar as well. Want to make some money, buy stock in the companies supplying the China buildout.

you'll have birds in a pole barn too. for me it's just little sparrows/wrens. they sh!t very little and I have zero insects, no flyers, no crawlers...nothin'

we exercise population control, and cleansing, in the boathouse. Pigeons, blackbirds, or any other dirty nuisance bird... roosting, or just stopping by, gets it.

800 ft/sec pellet rifle w/scope. I use the pointed penetrator.

the robins that pass thru, the little wrens (some of whom nest) stay...
they serve more of a purpose eating the spiders off the rafters, than they cause a problem in noise or chit combined.
