He builds it himself, with his crew of brothers, so very little labor & he used old telephone poles (free, just have to pick up) as the frame posts and had leftover metal siding from another barn he built! The concrete was the most expensive, but he finished it himself.

(Wow! That looks nice Wiscampsin!)

Not sure if this is a regional thing to our area with weeds, but we found that when laying the weed barrier fabric it is important to wash out all of the dirt that accompanies the rock when delivered to our location before laying it. We just transfered the rock straight onto the fabric, layed the rock, and within a couple of months the weeds were popping up (rooted in the dirt minimal dirt between rock and fabric)! This last summer when we added some new rock to another area of the yard, we made sure dirt wasn't in the rock/gravel. So far so good, no weeds

When we built our house in the country, we had a building built to acomadate a trailer and one car, and our tractor. We found like Kim's husband you never have enough room. I now have my Lebaron convertible, Ram. and 27 foot travel trailer ,garden tractor, and atv stuffed inside. Kim I work with farmers every day most are very talented.
