Video Description -- No - its not me
Great video. Good to see a guy so young has his head screwed on the right way.
Very nice .... wait until the wife and kids join the picture !!
Hmmmmmmmmm, add the price of a divorce onto that and it seems pricey.
Very nice. Well spoken young man with a clue and a plan. Nice to see. Badass Mustang too...
Yep, at his age I was still a tad wild.... Hope that pole barn isn't in a tornado-prone part of the country BTW....
I was wondering what the location is.
I just watched this and was going to post. I keep saying I should build a pole barn like this over my current house, and maybe leave a corner exposed. Just a stupid idea to keep the house and garage under one roof, but same concept. Of course, I would go his route if I ever did it. Would be a great home and a great way to live.
An ongoing daydream of mine is to buy a 100ft x 50ft two story warehouse w/ loading dock and roll up doors to convert to a home & garage. Place the home portion at the far end. This is right up my alley...
Very nice....thanks for the post
Oh dear.... It appears, at least from the website he links in the video description as being his, that he's in York, PA. York IS in a tornadic activity zone - they've had 100 since the 50's. Further, that's obviously a snowy part of the world in winter. Makes me question the snow load of the design as well...
Cool video. LOL I didn't have a pot to piss in when I was his age, let alone have the money or credit to do a major purchase like that. I'd only been in the machining trades for 5 yrs. and mold making apprentice pay wasn't enough at the time for those kind of toys.. Well done young man
Anyone ever watch this guy? Tons of views. Nice work. Some nights I'll just sit and watch him push dirt around for a half hour. I do the same with my lawn tractor, soothing somehow. It appears many people do the same.
He'll be fine. I've lived in this region (North of Baltimore Md, South of Harrisburg Pa.) all my life. Pretty safe area. You can have a tornado or two during the summer from a severe thunderstorm. Wind shears happen more than tornados. Snow fall can be three to four feet at one time buts that's maybe once in five years if that. The Appalachian mountains close to the west of us really help to break up storm fronts. Compared to other parts of the country we're fairly lucky here. Here's his video of the construction...
Yep, I watched that - and from what I know about building "pole barns" (I've tossed up a half dozen or so), metal roofing sitting on wood stringers on the flat doesn't have much strength against snow load. His using 6x6 posts for 14' eave heights + center peak is ok unless you're concerned about horizontal wind loads, too. No way that design is rated for any sort of big wind shear. If no extreme weather events occur, that building will be there for a long time; it's obviously pre-engineered and looks great, if not a tad under-insulated. If a good 90mph side wind comes along, though.... or if a big dump of wet snow comes along... In comparison, my own garage ("pole barn", too, just modified) has open web steel joists, 6x6 posts on 10' eave heights, OSB roof decking over insulation and under 50-year (heavier) metal roofing and steel angle iron spanning every bay. Same metal on all sides, too. It doesn't dent easily, suffice to say. It's rated for a 24" snow event and 160mph wind event. Yeah, that's overkill. No, we haven't had a tornado here in 50 years (but they get in the area about the same frequency as there, apparently). No, we don't get snow like that (most I've seen on the ground at once was just shy a foot deep). Don't care. It was built to protect. Our garage IS our tornado shelter. Strap yerself to a column and hang on, Gertie!
It looks like he put a lot of thought into it, but I thought it was code everywhere to have the garage at least 4" lower than the house due to vapors? Mine is the same size as his, but I'm older and have more disposable income than I did at 24, so I spent the $$$ and went with all metal and I beam truss. I'd have a hard time burying a wooden beam in the ground, as they will never last. I have a house on my property, but it's outdated. I wanted to build a small apartment in the corner to live in if I ever remodeled or demo'd and rebuilt the house.
Nice place, but there are many things in there that a wife would change, which of course would drive up the cost. Concrete floor in the living space would be better with radiant heat. The kitchen leaves something to be desired, but still not bad place for what it cost him.
Right ! I could live in there though, I like the simplicity. A place to eat and a place to sleep, and a bathroom, what more is needed ! I know I'd be in the garage more than the living space
A/C & real heat.
