That a beautiful barn. Like how they incorporated the preexisting structure. Is there a opening inside between the buildings. Also interesting that they erected the wood supports then poured the pad.

Very nice.

Very nice.

An 8' wide opening into the unheated section of the existing and a 42" door into the heated shop.

It was a challenge to get my design implemented and added considerably to the cost. Local code and setbacks from the river limited the option of a separate building. Other locations on the property would interfered with a view of a beautiful valley.

It also incorporates my dad's wood shed that previously occupied the site. I think the feature looks great. I picked green to diminish the size among the spruce trees.

I really like the way you engineered the addition. I think there is nothing worse than an addition that looks like an addition. You know, when you drive by and say "oh look they put a vinyl sided addition on that brick house. "
Is that an outdoor wood boiler? What kind of heat exchanger are you using? Will it supply hot water to the house as well?

Can't wait to see the work on the Airstream.

It will heat the shop, house, hot water, and hot tub.

Water to air heat unit in the shop, radiant floors in the house.

Great design Dave, turns a nice little shop into a really nice big one. ( will both of your classics fit in there?).
Like the wood stacking space too, will that wall stay open for access to the wood? Does the wood fired boiler fit under that eve too?

Was that your dad on the tractor , very helpfull.

Cheers Richard

I've got basically 56x24 feet of area with ceiling over 12 feet. Two would fit fine. I'll leave the 94 in storage in Boulder until spring. I hope to replace the headliner, flooring, wall covering, and graphics on the outside in time to put it up for sale before summer.

Had too much fun with that Kubota SLV. Moved about 200 yards of fill.

I do have a nice camp site with water and 50 amp. I'll put in a small septic system next spring.
