We will post photos as we build this rather
large pole barn. This building will house
the General Lee, the Patrol Car, the Tow Truck,
PLUS, my private Dukes Collection.
It will take at least 3 years to complete this
project, because of the cost involved.

The first three photos show
the house with room to build.
This is the way the property looked
before we bought it. !!!!
Hope you enjoy these.

type of building I wanted to build !

The designer from the truss company said the
engineers in Toronto will not approve the truss
that is required to span a 40' opening without
support beams in the middle of the building.
So, we will build a regular pole barn, but
with a 20' outside wall.
Compared to a normal 12' to 14' outside wall.

Below are some photos of the progress
since buying our home in the country.

A special thank you goes out to:
Don(JR),and Don(SR)> for all the fill.

To my son Lance, for all the work he did.

There were many extremely heavy pieces.

That required the two of us to work together.

Here is a size comparison.
