    Great post and I really wonderful how all these barns were built before we had cranes. It really must been been such a sight to see everyone in the community chipping in to raise them.

    Hi Todd, yes, I’m sure that is quite a site. We are all spoiled now with the lifts and cranes 🙂 Thank you for your comment, have a great day!

    Sandy, this is fascinating. Is this a regular thing or more of a once off? We build with timber trusses but thay are very slende things with a timber cross section of 4 X 11/2 being pretty common.
