8990 - great idea. I notice you park the MH in different locations - which do you find to be the best? Any thoughts for an outside washroom, etc.

Gordon, we park it in the same spot each time, I think it was just the angle of the photos that made it look differently. I don't even move the blocks for the rear stabilizing jacks cause I can get the hubs to back that sucker right where I want it! We have the utilities stubbed up from underground right near the wet bay on the coach. We do have an outbuilding that houses our water well system and a washer and dryer. We've also built a half bath, no shower yet. Here are a few other photos that I just went outside and took. Two are taken from the driveway, one from the corner of the building, the other is from the backyard. We built this Dec. 2013, and it is still a work in progress. Click image for larger version

You finished yours about the same time as we finished ours in Dec 2013, and our construction is nearly identical. I'm already wishing I had built mine larger than 48 x 26. How did you build your piers? I drilled 24" holes 5' - 6' deep, about 1' into a solid rock layer. My engineer said the piers are designed more to hold it down than hold it up.

Hi Tracy;
Thanks for the additional pictures. What fooled me was one picture looked like the MH was parked to the left the next one looked like it was closer to the center. No matter it does look like a sweet place to stay when not on the road.

I sure would have loved that extra 12'X2' but the city nor my space allowed for it

Hi Rich;
Very nice. Really like the large doors.

Looks like family has found your storage area. Our kids found ours and about have the space is occupied by their stuff. Do not mind as we built a bit extra and they know their stuff is out when/if we get stuff to fit there.

Hayward 3411 I see you are in Hunington Md. Did you have the Amish build your pole barn?

Yup! And it didn't take long for the "do you mind if...."
My brother in law bought his Jayco last year at the Pa. show. He lives about an hour away in a neighborhood where he cannot store the trailer. He should be picking it up as soon as he finds a location near his house for the season. The remaining is my stuff. My son who works on his vehicles often is anxious for me to put the floor in. I still have his motorcycle in the barn. Hoping he sells it soon. Once I get the water and floor in I will be installing the "shop" items and moving storage shelves from the garage. Much to do!

Safe travels!

You would be surprised at how much dust is made by just walking on a new concrete floor (with fibers in the mix) don't dare drop something like a magazine on it unless you want to see a dust mushroom cloud. There's really no sweeping it, I even tried an old vacuum cleaner and it clogged that up.

Once warmer temperatures get here for a while it will get a sealer put on it. I had originally opted against the sealer in case I dropped something on the floor and chipped it or using a cutting torch and melted portions of the sealant.

Same here. The gravel I chose 3/8" crushed stone gets in tire and shoe treads. It is sharp and hurts the knees. I'll be glad when I finally pour a concrete floor.

Yes, the Amish came down from PA and built it in 3 days. I already had millings down. The concrete was poured 2 years after the barn was built.
