Very nicely done, Greg! Very nicely done indeed!

I may have to stop following this thread, though... I'm allergic to all of the hay.... [:-boggled] [:-sick] [:-sick] [:-sick]

So.... where was I in this continuing story?
Oh yes!
Having now finally filled the barn with hay, and added a shed for Noah & his family to use.
Noah decided it was time to fill the barn, with all sorts of animals from all around the world.

Oops! wrong story, right barn.





Just having some fun!

Looking great, Greg!

I have enjoyed catching up on your continuing story and build this morning. Its coming together very well - even with the measure once cut five times episode! (not your fault - I know. The moral of that story is to build ONE truss and test fit it - but you already know that.)

With regards to the upper layer of vertical cladding on the barn gables - I think if I were cladding that I might look at adding a packer up and down the rake of the gable so that the upper cladding was vertical rather than on a slight angle. Not suggesting that you change anything, just that it might be useful for others.

I think the bales of hay came out quite delightfully!

As always I enjoy your 'slip' of humour' when you added the wrong photo! I think perhaps that ramp could do with some hefty joists and bearers - I'm surprised those two elephants are in the barn and not in a pile of broken timbers below the door!

Loving your work, cheers, Mark.

Mark, thanks for your interest and for your comments!

Yes your right I should have tested that first interior support before I built any others.[:-banghead]
Your suggestion regarding the gable ends, sounds like another way of doing it for sure.
The hay bales seem to be a hit with most.
I think they remind me of mini shredded wheats.
I always enjoy a little bit of fun while I'm building.
So glad you enjoy it as well!

Hi everyone, well I have another barn addition to report on.
This is the one on the front left this time.
It's built exactly the same as the smaller one on the right.
You begin with the cardstock cut out, just like before.





I decided to cut my form into 3 pieces instead of folding the corners as suggested by the instructions.
I also added a couple of extra 1/8" sq. braces across the top & bottom of this form.





You then begin to add the 2x10 siding starting on the end walls beginning right on the front corners where the walls meet.
I also decided to move that little door opening to the side wall instead of the front wall.





This addition is supposed to sit flush with the barns end wall, so you will need to cut off the rafter tail hanging down on that end wall.
I just used a rail nipper to cut it off with.





After completing the siding and gluing down this addition to it's foundation, I discovered that it worked a bit better for me to keep this addition not flush with the end wall but just back a little tiny bit.
That way I had even overhang on both ends of this particular addition.
The roof for this addition will get added as part of the larger barn roof a little further down the road.
I also added "FESMIRE FARMS" to this addition with 2 Jordan wagon wheels on either side.
That way Chester can always say that he has a set of wheels on his farm.[:-angel]





I was also thinking about adding a couple of gooseneck lights over this sign.



That's it for now, thanks for having a look!

Greg

Gets better with every post.

This is turning out to be a beautiful build I guess it was well worth the wait!

Greg, Looking really good!
Since Chester is known for his great vehicles, those Fesmire Farms' hay bales must contain an extra lot of carbs :)

The door on that little addition on the right side should have a sign that reads, "open with caution". The first step is a good 6' to the ground.
