man that's awesome. making really good progress it looks like! always been an idea of mine to redo an old barn, but working out of town year round really puts a damper on that idea. keep up the good work, looks like its gonna be a pretty badass shop!

Looks good, lot of work so far. Did you ever think about keeping some of the hay loft with a door and ramp on the other end for storage?

My opinion you kind of ruined that old barn. should have just re sheeted the roof stained the wood sides and fixed the block wall. then you could have thrown some cows in the stanchions and start making some hay to put in the mow. But this is all coming from a farmer and im just glad you didn't let it fall in

Lot of work...do you think it would have been better and cheaper to start from scratch? Looks damn nice though and the purchase price is crazy good deal. Just bought 1 1/2 acres for twice that.

There's 20'x32' left of the hay loft in the back, I'm planning on making it into my mancave.

I'm no farmer and don't plan on having animals so there's no point in that. It was either this, or tear it down and build new. I think I made the right decision.

Yeah it got appraised for $96k so I came out winning on this one. It might have been cheaper to start from scratch, but I'm going to have the looks of an old barn with the comfort of a brand new shop. Can't beat that
