 Size Barn for New Farmer

Try to build a steel barn onsite. Don't know what size is suitable to me. What I know is door should be 10'high, 10'wide. I need use it store a tractor with FEL, a 72" tiller, a two bottoms moldboard plow, pto sprayer, and all other misc.
I think at least can let tractor turn inside to attach them. So minumize is 14x20? may be 20x20? I see arrow has some steel shed like that. Also consider some more solider one like the link show. 17per sq with deliver and installation is reasonable price?
Thanks,

If you have the equipment you want to park in the barn already, park at as close as you feel comfortable and measure the area you need. You could put up some stakes with string or tape between them to give you a good idea on the walls. Where you place the door will also be important.

If you don't have the equipment, get the dimnensions of each piece, draw to scale and lay it out as a puzzle and that will give you an idea. You will have to allow for turning room and such.

For me, the stuff you want to stow grows in size and amount.

 Size Barn for New Farmer

I just sold my old farm house with (big, big) barn. I have another place a mile down the road. I'm getting concrete poured in the old 25' x 44' shed (had dirt floor) and am thinking about an additional 32' x 48' with 12' x 12' and 10' x 12' doors.

I'm getting prices in the $15.00 - $25.00/ sq. ft. range depending upon how fancy we get. That is without electricity but with concrete floor and approach apron.

I have found the drawing to scale has worked very well. However, you will be hard pressed to pick up on the swing needed and such that way. Be sure to allow like 3 feet in length to your tractor and implement's for room needed when you are in line with it and not hooked up. Having to lock a brake to turn on a shop floor is not something I would want to do much off. In my part of the world we mostly use open shelters and often shed on the side of barns where the implements are only parked one deep unless something very small like a box blade. If theft is an issue not the best set up.

I have a difficult time manuvering my 4310 w/ FEL in my 24x36 pole barn. I have built platforms w/ casters to move the implements around the barn so that I can store them more efficiently (60"blower, box blade and 48 backhoe) but I dont do much "turning" in the barn with this stuff on the tractor. It's just not enough room, and if I wack one of my posts with the FEL, the second floor is coming down on my head.

A little something to think about is whatever you decide....you should get your specs down and then consider going a little bigger. There's always something that comes up with the space issue and if you have the space and don't use......no big deal. If you need it and don't have it......it's a pain.

Plus, if you are farming and you are going to have a barn, you may as well have a "real" barn and not just equipment storage. You will then have the versatility to do lots of things with your barn space down the road if you need to. Just think ahead and consider things that may come up in the future.

Thanks, Jamhistory.
"Just think ahead and consider things that may come up in the future." I will. In the worst case, if space is not a issue, build anotherSmile
