 New barn construction

Hi, I am planning a new barn for this summer's project and you like to get some opinions. I found a site (Menards) that sells kits for pole barns and found a design that looks like it would work well for what I need. It's primary purpose will be equine. We just have two horses but really need a better place for them to get out of the weather. The kit is for a 36' x 45' with 12' high by 12' wide sliding doors on each end. Three stall doors will open directly to the 7 are pasture. I will be building this my self along with the help of my older brother who used to do this for a living. I plan on keeping the floor some type of gravel/sand. What can I expect to pay for the excavation work? It will be built in an open field with a mild slope to it so it would have to built up to avoid water problems. Has anyone built something like this?

 New barn construction

Smaller, but I built a 24x24 hay shed this summer with 14 foot walls. Material costs plus a bobcat rental to dig the post holes to 6 feet, was $6000. All labour done by myself and then pregnant wife!
Didn't have a tractor, so we spread the gravel by hand. But was not as much as you will have in the barn.
A guy with a bobcat will set you $40 to $60 an hour for the top soil removal and the gravel spreading. In my area, gravel goes for around $22 a yard, in large quantities.
Our barn is hopefully going to be around 32x60 and we were quoted around $12k for materials, including metal siding, and 12 feet tall. Its not a bad do it yourself project, but allow more time than you think, and get a couple friends and some scaffolding to get the trusses up. We used a rope on each end, and it wasn't so bad.
What are you going to use for a gravel base, we are curious as to what people lay down....Good luck!

 New barn construction

I just went to Menards yesterday and customized the plans as to what I want for a barn. I went with a 40' wide by 45' long with 13 foot walls and a attached 10' deep loafing shed. Two 12'x12' sliding doors (one on each end), 3 split stall doors that will open into the loafing shed. With all the trim and extras the total comes to about 9.5K for the meterials. I would like to hire a dozer to come in and clear part of a tree line to make room for the barn so I plan on having the same guy build up the site a little to avoid water problems. I have not considered what type of base I will be using at this time but I am sure I can use my tractor to spread it around.

I had no idea that you needed to drill the posts to 6 feet! My post hole digger only goes down 4 feet. I will check into the building codes to see what they want.

What will you be using your barn for?

Doc, relax, YOU don't have to go 6' deep for your posts.

Buzzlight is about another 500 miles further north than you, and in an area known for deep frost penetration.

You should be just fine with 4' deep holes provided your soil is well drained.

Best of luck.

Our contractor just left. He is due to begin construction on the new barn next week! YIPPEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! It should be completed by mid February, if the weather cooperates. It's going to be an 8 stall barn, with a breezeway, and 2 run ins on the sides. 2 stalls will be converted to feed/tack/hay storage. We're gonna have hot water, fans in the summer, and all the "niceties" we've lived without before. And my DH just gave me my early Christmas present.......a 100 gallon black water trough, and a de-icer!!! It will be so nice not to have to break and remove ice every few hours all winter. Last winter, (and many winters prior) I even left work to come home during the say and remove ice. And I worried that the horses weren't getting enough water too. (I'm a worry-wart when it comes to my animals).
I'll post pics as things get under way. Just wanted to share my JOY!!!!
