Raising it scared the Hell outta me too We changed exactly how we were gonna do it a few times and I could picture in my mind the whole thing coming crashing down. But everything went smooth and my friends who were helping me all knew their stuff and all it cost me besides materials was lunch, and a few beers after we finished.

So I (we) finally got around to adding 12' to the rear of the polebarn. Not finished yet but here is what we have done so far. Because of costs and long wait for wood trusses decide to go with a single steel truss. Finished Picture is just what it we are doing looks like. Plan is to set the truss on Friday got 6 friends coming over to help. Hopefully will have it finished by Sunday.

Great job Rick! Marvels of redneck engineering indeed; seems that when one has the desire, there are many ways to skin a cat - looks good.

You Volunteering?

It would be nice to have someone here full time while we are gone. We have friends that come by and check on things. If it was this time of the year when we are gone I am sure I could get someone from the forum who lives in the Great White North to Winter on the property.
