(This may take a minute if there are a lot of photos in the series)
The mickens started their project back in May 98. With the framing all "lined and plumbed", this photo shows the 1/2" chip board used for the sheer panel.
It really starts to take shape when those trusses go up!!
Rather than the typical concrete foundation and slab, Pete decided to go with the cement block perimeter foundation and a wood joist floor with piers. Nice job!
There are lots of different brands of moisture and draft barriers..... This one's called "TYPAR".
Sculptured block foundation, 5/8" T1-11 Cedar siding (over the 1/2" chip board!), and a nice new roof. The French Doors add a touch of class. Also, note the way they treated the eaves. Very nice!
Back Side. Window and door trim, paint and stain.
Here, then, is the finished "Barn Shell". Foundation, framing, siding, doors and windows, first floor, second floor, stairs and roof. Pete says the materials for the project to this point ran right at $9K. That's right...... $9,000!! They're going to finish up the inside through the winter and plan on being finished and moved in by Spring of '99.
"Ewalk" the framing inspector. Now you just keep all four of them cute little feet right flat on the floor, little guy!!!
This is the floorplan Pete and Audrey used for the bottom floor of their 28' x 44' Gambrel Barn House. They have yet to finish the plan for the second floor.
