sounds like what I want to build this summer. Just starting to get some estimates. Please share your project pics / plans. Good luck on a smooth project. I wish mine was already built.

Just awesome.

If there is ANYTHING close to the the thrill of owning land, it's the thrill of having a "place away from home". I'm sure you're going to enjoy the hell out of your new place.

We just made a decision on what we are going to build this summer, too. We'll be building a 28x42 carriage house with 20' sidewalls. Three 9x9 overhead doors, on the main level, and ~1,100sqft of finished living space on 2nd story. Fully insulated 1st floor (and 2nd, obviously), with white steel paneled walls and ceiling. All steel exterior skins.
We wanted to put up a new home on our land, but have now decided to go this route, instead, to allow my wife the opportunity to take some time away from her career (as a school teacher), to care for our two young kids. When the kids get to school age, and she goes back to work, we plan to build a home, adjacent to the carriage house.
It's pretty exciting to dream up some plans, and think that, in just a few months, there may be a brand new structure (cabin/barn/home) on your hunting property!
Post pics of your project! Rest assured I will.

Awesome. Last Summer I put up a 24 x 32 , 10 ' high pole barn. It is mainly for wood storage and the tractor. I just went with crush and run on the inside. Steel roof and sides. One man door, one slider, and one 10x9 overhead door.

pics for ideas, before the crush stone was placed. I need updated pics!
slider I built

Gotta have a weather vane

I am already thinking about the next one. Post your pics as you go!
Good luck
