October 12, like I said in my last two posts about I’m building a barn, one of my former clients is having me build them a 28′ x 42′ barn with a sheltered overhang that is 14′ x 42′ at the back of the barn. I had built their home several years ago and a workshop last year. This year they decided to get horses, so I designed a barn for them and this is a progress report.

Since a week ago Friday, we have compled the exterior framing and siding including the sheltered area. We have all the roof sheathing on, ready to roof. However it is supposed to rain tonight and for the next couple of days. So as you can so we are placing heavy duty plastic down over the roof and laying 2×4’s on top of the plastic so it won’t blow away.  The roof sheathing inside the barn has an aluminum face on the inside to help keep the barn cool in the summer.

In addition, the corral fencing is being moved so the horses can stay in the sheltered area to stay dry in the coming storm. This is another reason we placed the plastic over the entire roof area.

Nailing off the roof sheathing before laying plastic over the roof for temporary protection for the next few days of rain

We’ll be ready to roof as soon as the weather breaks.  Interested in having a home, garage, workshop or barn, designed and built?  Call John O’Dell 530-263-1091
