    We broke ground yesterday on my 3/4 acre lot. We should start construction (w/in 2 weeks hopefully) of a 40X60 pole barn. If I can get it to load - here's a pic of my 4 yr old daughter on the dozer. Kirstyn sure is a trooper;)

    ConPro,

    Barrington NJ is the location. Total project 160-200K.
    Building alone concrete, walls, doors, gutters, downs, windows w/out interior walls approx 35K. Get quotes from both Little Construction Co of Mt Laurel + Conestoga Buiildings PA. We chose Little.

    THe entire yard will be fenced w/ the 3 bays in the back. 2 bays will be 40' front to back, & the 3rd much smaller as I will have an office/ bath area of approx 450 sq. ft, the small bay will be 180 sq ft, which is connected to the 1740 sq ft main shop area.

    I also have a separate scrub sink in the shop area, 2 hook-ups for welder, will have several hook-ups for air tools and lots of room on the breaker box for many upgrades when needed.

    I'll post more pics later prior to building to show elevation changes, etc
