On our little homestead we have this really great barn and we are slowly adding lots of equipment that we need to take care of our growing farm. The problem I’m having right now is that our barn is filled up with a tractor, lawn mower, and just generally packed in there.
Initially the roof was leaking so we couldn’t do much anyway, but now that the roof is fixed I’d really like to use the barn to build a few things especially while it’s cold.
So on the back of the barn we took on the project of building a carport or a lean to. The dimensions are 20 feet wide just like the barn, and then it extends 12 feet out so there is enough room for the tractor and some equipment that can sit outside but needs to be protected from sun/rain/snow.
We are almost finished with it now. Click any of the pictures below to see larger versions. All that is really left is to add the sides on it to add a little extra protection.
