Looks like its coming along very nice and quick to. I keep thinking about putting a similar addition on my building but when I get my tax bill it always slows my thinking down.

Mine in Elkhart County Indiana zoning on any R or A zone strictly must have small square footage than a house otherwise I can get a variance code applications for large pole barn. It will take me three months to approve the applications in the mail. Socialist I give up on my bare land and turn around find a used home three plus acres available to store all my toys ... steam engine, threshers and tractor.

I'm glad the folks in my township are more understanding. I did not request the rezoning to commercial, I was part of a master plan update. We live in the northwest corner of a freeway interchange so the property became commercially desirable and we sold off some pasture land, but the township didn't want "spot zoning" so my place, because it is deeded separate from the farm, got scooped up in the commercial area. Under the commercial it allows any building necessary to conduct business, and only restricts square footage based on required parking (another table/formula). They didn't even bother to figure that out, just said I could build.

Here's where we ended yesterday. Doesn't look like we did much but we did dig all the rat walls (192'X21") formed and poured them. After a lot of digging I got lucky and ran the skid steer hauling concrete from the truck to the guys.

I sure miss our old barn...

Built a header to remove a pole, moved in 60 Tons of crushed concrete fill, then started installing siding. Tomorrow we pour the floor.
