Friday Funday ???

Today S & I tackled a sheep hay storage area.
I have been using a hut that sat on the ground but it was a back breaker
as my 5'8" child demonstrates.
 
We bought 3 huts at a auction.
They are roughly 8' x 8' square.
One we resold, one we have in the sheep pasture for it's intended purpose and
one I use for storage near the sheep's feeding area outside.
So.....
 
First step was taking all the crapola that was around the hut and dispose or put it away.
 

 
Next we picked a spot in the corner that is beside sheep and backs up to arena fence where cows are.
Then S in his kindness allowed me to dig and set all 4 posts.
That was so sweet!
It was easy with the recent rain and I only have to dig down 2 ft.


 
We attached 2x6 boards for the hut to set down on and 2x2 boards to attach tin to later.
 

 
We picked up the hut with a chain and maneuvered it into position.
We lowered it and miraculously it set down on boards with only a little pushing around.
A lot of bolts and screws later and tada.

 
A storage hut for hay!
It started to rain so the tin will be attached to the bottom walls later.
S wants to close in the front with a recycled storm door and plywood.
It faces east and normally is fine left open.
I'll think on it.
I think trying to toss bales in a normal size door will be a pain.
We'll see.....

  1. It's gotta be a BIG improvement just having it raised up. Plus, it will hold a lot more hay!
