    Topaz if you are not going to mow or farm, a skid steer is much better for moving bales and snow. Perhaps a little bit more money though for a skidder.

    Mark, that building looks great.

    Yeah I know but I wasn't really going to buy either for that "need it for 3 hrs/year" thing.

    Was shopping younger models of the Princess though, not sure i could maintain them after purchase, safer just to window shop. Amazing what options are available if $ is no object.

    Mernards has a metal building "build" calculator. They also sell heart medicine I would recommend you purchase a dose of that BEFORE you plug numbers into the calculator.

    Greg mine is 30'x50' I can leave the truck and boat connected and it barely fits. If I was to build a new one I would make it a pull thru with doors on each end. Someday my "barndominum" will be such....Someday.

    Figured I would make it large enough that all the visiting boaters have a place to park their floats, charge batteries and is out of the weather.

    An extra bay sounds like a steller idea! It will need to be at least 14x30 to fit my boat. Maybe you should just rent me the basement. Maybe I could work off some rent when I am not busy fishing. Like mowing the grass and cleaning the pool. drink

    Greg already has people that do that....lol

    Speaking of Barndominiums, that may very well be my next residence with the matching toy shed in the back. Love the concept and functionality of it

    I would gladly become his Cabana Boy. Id always keep his drink full and a fine cigar in his hand. During the week, While he is slaving away at his dead end job... I would fish. Then on the weekend while he is at the cabin I would make sure his needs are met. Well most of them anyways. rotfl

    In all seriousness, my neighbor built a 60x100'... ish. The front half is 3 br 1 ba living quarters. Huge kitchen/living room with 20' back wall for mounts. The business side is for tractor, decoy trailer, etc. you can back up the truck to the bird cleaning room with stainless restaurant style counters and sinks. All heated floors thruout, I bet he's got $200k in it. He commented one day he was 80k over budget so I'd say it's wasn't "cheap". But it sure is nice!
