Awesome work and now I see it a roof. Completely my mistake :(
Easy to mistake for a floor the way I took the picture. Plus the barn itself isn't very tall. I can walk under it..... I look at like pigs are short anyway. :lol: I picked the shortest pole and it had a rotten end that we had to cut off. So after we cut it into 4 pieces and set them, they weren't all that tall. Not a lot of pitch to the roof and every side is a different measurement, but I guess I won't see any pigs out there with a measuring tape.:thumbsup

That leaves the other poles for other projects that may NEED to be taller than pig high. ;)

Just finished putting tin on the roof. Still got to pitch the holes with roof sealant, but right now this glass of iced tea is much more important.

I had 8’ tin for a 12’ roof. I cut 2’6” pieces and laid at the bottom then over lapped them with the 8’ piece.

I carried the tin and my tools on the mule.

I got compliments on it today from my daughter. Then she said that I could build a kid play house. Hmmm........ I want to get a couple of those star plate kits from Strombergs and build a couple of gazebos. (but not for pigs) LOL

Go ahead and put it there and just kick the sheep out of it when the grands come over!
That's a thought......also want to build a BBQ hut with cement floor. Then I want to get a nice gas grill to put in it, along with the two wood pits we have.
