We started building our 60'x80' barn December 2016. Building a barn from scratch is a very long process. I've documented and photographed our barn build step-by-step. For memories that last forever. This page contains all the related build-a-barn posts, and will continue to evolve until our barn is completed.

I really do like the look of stamped concrete - your place is going to be like DALLAS (the show, I mean), so opulent. It's quite a wonderful day when you get a flushing toilet! ;-)
