Below is a pic of my "main" shop. It is a 60'x60' part of our horse barn. It had a dirt floor which is kind of a pain, but it does what I need. Then I have two 10'x20' portable garage sheds, two 8'x30' unfinnished sheds, and an oversized 24'x28' garage attatched to the house. I still wish I had more room lol!

I keep everything locked up under the house. I park my trucks behind a 6' stockade fence that is jacked up about 18" off the ground to hide my F350 a little better. (and I can blow the leaves underneath it and into my asxhole neighbors lawn):laugh:

That looks real nice. Is that 2 gas tanks you have outside your barn? Wouldn't it be a better idea to keep them inside out of the sun?

I lied, I have time. I have two of these sheds. They are 10x20x8. I like them as long as we dont get a good gust of wind. When it is really windy they like to move around.

This is the floor inside the shed where my tractor lives. It is made out of ten old golf tee mats flipped over.

This is the tractor equipment corner in the main barn.

Same corner again before we moved all of our junk into the basement of the house when we moved in. Now we use those platforms in the background for hay and such.

I have two of these sheds out back. I would say they are like 10x30 or something like that. They look small in the picture. I have fixed them up since the pic. They are good storage for just about anything I want to keep out of most of the weather.

The main barn is also a horse barn. We have 10 horse boarded in there. The insurance company won't let us keep big equipment in there because of fire even though it is diesel, they don't care. They look the other way with the mowers, but insisted the tractor had to be out of the barn. Crime is not very big around here. The tractor shed is about .5 miles from the road, so somebody would have to know that it is there and know where my trailer is to load it, which currently isn't even on my property!

lawncare18- so you must be getting ready.. saw a bunch of proscapes trucks on fri with plows on. we currently have 3 more small walks to do this year. no more than 2 weeks work. and a couple more cleanups. how do you like the golf course work? you may still get a few more people next week if it gets into the 60's like there saying....

I just work for pro scapes during the winter snowblowing and shoveling walk ways at budwizer in baldwinsville.. I love the golf course work.. we are closed but still let people come walk if they wana play.. we got one mroe mow on the golf course this week then we will start shuting down... just finished building a new green this week so we havent been doing much cleanup yet.. I think pro scapes just puts all the plows on at a certain time and they drive with them on while they are finishign up mowing and cleanups..

Just graded a pad for a 36' x 40' pole building. I'm going with board & batten rough sawn wood siding on 12' walls and a metal roof. Floor will be #67 washed stone. I'll post pics as the project progresses.
