    60'w x 50'd x19' tall pole barn shop, concrete slab. Man door, 16x8 door, and 16x14 door. Will have plenty of room for my projects. The 71 Demon Sizzler I bought almost 10 years ago. My wife's 72 Dart Custom. Two Durango Projects, and whatever else I want to do!

    Along with this, we are replacing the decrepit 1971 Mobile Home with a brand new 2567 sq ft triple wide 4br 3 bath home.

    More pictures as the project progresses.

    I'm pretty damn excited!

              :thumbsup: Congrats!!! Bad part is....I don't care how big of a shop you build, it ends up being too small...lol. Looks like you have plenty of room to add sheds off the sides and back if needed in the future. :D

                I'm glad you were able to find people to do the construction. So many projects sidelined these days. Usually when I say awesome build I mean car but awesome build!

                  Yup. A big part of my roof blew off the day before thanksgiving 2019 and by the time the holidays were over and the insurance crap was done, it was mid-March, right when all this crap started. I’m hoping after Memorial Day they can get going on it. I’m sick of looking at blue tarps on my roof.

                  Don't blame you thats a huge amount of time. Wonder how they would feel waiting for your premium payments that long?
