New Equipment Shed, 2013

Updated: 22 December 2013          


Work began on this project with site preparation last fall, then resumed at the end of April when the crew from Virginia Frame Builders arrived. The building is 80 feet long by 28 feet deep with a three-foot roof overhang in front. It is designed to hold all the hay equipment, the dump truck, trailer, backhoe, mower, and a bunch of miscellaneous stuff.

I am working on the detailed pix — coming soon.
