Hey everyone we're going to try and work on our added shelter next to the barn, sort of a run in type shelter, with doors on each end. It will be 16ft long, and about 6ft wide. THis is where I feed them, and also where they will start sleeping so we can use the 2 stalls for kidding. We can't afford to do things around here the way we want until spring <a few bills will be paid off by then>. We just need something to get them through the cold months. We're planning on using OSB across the roof, but what can we cover it with? I was thinking a heavy duty tarp, and then later I can pick up another one so we can double it up. I would also like to put OSB around the sides. And I will possibly block off one entrance with a pallet and pull tarp down to cover it and keep out drafts, so they can sleep towards the back of the shelter when it's nasty out. The front entrance I will probably pull a tarp down so it covers it half way, and on nice days I will pull it up. Sound like a good idea? A friend of mine made her shelters out of OSB and tarp and they lasted her a long time. Sure they aren't all that attractive, but as long as the critters are dry and out of the wind -- comfy...that's all that matters to me right now. Next spring we'll put Ondura roofing up which is what we have on the mini barn. I'm going to go get the OSB today, since it's a BEAUTIFUL day out today, we can most likely get it done today after hubby gets off of work!
