I just had a Carolina Carport installed in the pasture

I'm in central Texas where it doesn't get as cold as up north so I really didn't need a full fledged barn.
I got 3 sides covered and 2 windows in the back for ventilation.

And they don't just plop it down..3 foot rebar driven in every so many feet and also mobile home anchors.
It took them about 3 hours to put it up.

I was doing research on barns when I came across articles, forum posts where people were using these carports in the pastures for their animals and how they can be customized using posts and panels inside them.

The total cost was about $3K for a 26x21 with 6ft walls.

My eyes are going. Just a glance and I thought it said how much to build a bar. So I clicked on. A barn, not a bar.

You may want to start a new thread to get more help but the painting of my 35 x 60 foot metal quonset barn was quoted to me at around $3,500. That was for priming and a rust preventative enamel. I thought that was a bit high for this locale so I have not done it yet.

Free if you are friends with the Amish. Who needs insurance? Many many years ago my grandpa had his struck by lightning. The next morning at least 30 Amish-men were there reconstructing it.


No charge!!

God bless you!!

We are purchasing a polebarn kit from Meeks, 30x40, 10ft walls just for animal shelter and storage (I have milk goats). The kit is 4,999. Mennonites in our area do construction and quoted us 1700 to put up the kit in two days. Ground work will be between 500-800 dollars (no concrete, just bringing in dirt, building up and leveling). So taxes included with an extra walk in door and a couple windows we will stay within our construction budget of 10,000 (SW Missouri)
