    Well I thought I would post on here about the new barn my husband is building me. It is going to be a 24 x 32 two story barn. So I will have plenty of room for hay and maybe a small office up stairs. Going to have each side of the barn split up, one side will be for the does and the other side will be for the babies next year, for weaning and any bottle babies that I have. Im hoping this will help my babies grow out better and they wont have to compete for the grain. Then my milking does will only get grain on the stands. Well here is the start of it, hope I dont bore you with to many pics. We have the whole bottom part framed going to be working on the top part this weekend.

    Thanks everyone, it is coming along slowly but its at least getting there. This is the barn he built for himself this past winter. Mine will be done alot like it but bigger and no lean to for now. But will have silver roof and red metal trimmed in white. Im excited cant you tell. Wish I could get him out that way then I could visit all your pretty goats Kelebek.

    Wow! That barn looks like it is going to be awesome. Do you have electric net fencing keeping your goats in?

    Kannm no its just three foot fencing with electric fence ran on the inside so it keeps them back from the fence.

    Liz hoping to have it done before winter, but we might not be able to. But thats what we are aiming for at the moment.
    Thanks everyone for the compliments, it is going to be sweet and I cant waite. lol

    Okay. Couple of things hubby and I noticed...
    1) The goats checking out everything in the background but not being "pesty".
    2) The power saw laying on the ground with no one bothering it. (you must not have sheep)
    Hubby said if that was us, Moose would be trying to drag the power saw off . He steals everything or try's to "help" with everything we do.
    3) The braces you have up? Moose would be trying his darndest to push them down. Or the goats would be scratching their horns on them in every picture.

    You have well behaved animals. We have hetherns. (sp?) :laugh:
    Good luck with the rest of it. Can't wait to see it finished.
    We will be starting on ours when they finish clearing up the trees. Please pray we get it down before I take them out there or it will be a looonnnggg time getting done. Plus I'll need to make a cuss jar. Hubby will pay for my first Jacob sheep within a few days. :greengrin:

    What are the benefits of using sand? I was going to just use concrete on mine for the floor. Seeing how sand is much cheaper I would LOVE some input on it. Looking good. I wish I could make a giant barn big enough for ALL my animals to stay in.

    Re: My new barn is under construction.

    Ms. lam you just got pictures of them being good. lol They where being very pesty and we had to keep running them off.
    The power saw was being chewed on and hubby had to run them off.
    And the braces where being knocked all over when they kept trying to run and play through the barn. lol
    They are only well behaved when you are looking but turn your back and they are into everything.
    Cuss jar that is what my husband needs lol. I hope you have good luck getting it done. My husband is wanting my done by the end of next month but we shall see.

    Oh that is crusher its real small gravel and when it rains on it it kinda sets up like concrete.
    Thanks again everyone for looking and saying nice things.

    Get pics of them being naughty then blackmail them when they want what your eating for lunch. :laugh: Romeo ate my cheeseburger once. I looked to scold another goat and zoink no burger. He also likes eggrolls and hushpuppies. Don't even try coffee or tea around them. Even if they don't want it, they will sneeze in it. :doh:
