Special storage in the fields

It seems like there’s just never enough storage when you live on a farm.


When my buddy, who is a farmer, was lamenting the fact that he needed storage space, I suggested he look at building his own farm shed. Of course, he jumped on the idea.

After all, he really works with his hands. He’s a third generation farmer and he knows that the way to get things done is to do it yourself. Add to this is the fact that I think he owns every tool in the world.


Shoot, his workshop is bigger than my house.


But he needed storage out away from his home, convenient to the field where he keeps his livestock. But, until I suggested it, he had not thought of just building a farm shed on that field.


We started looking online for places to get some plans. He didn’t need anything as simple as I would need, but when we found Ted’s Woodworking, we knew we hit pay dirt.


Since I was going to help him – Simple was good.


We bought the plans, even though, 16,000 plans certainly seemed like overkill just to get designs for farm sheds. But all of the other sets we looked at didn’t appear to have nice farm-style structures and that’s what Ben wanted.

Once we started downloading the plans, he was excited…it was still pretty foreign to me. Until I looked closer. Even I understood them.



Ben just laughed as he printed out the one he had chosen. It was great – looked like a small barn, double doors – really sharp. We were excited to get started.


It didn’t take long from start to finish. He put stuff he needed to get to in that field right into that shed and now he doesn’t have to haul stuff from the main barn out all the time. He saves time and effort by putting it where he needs it. He’s even thinking of building another farm shed up by the road for convenience…


And once we were done, we started looking through the plans again and picked out a shed plan for my own backyard. I don’t have acreage like he does, but we found something the perfect size for my yard too.


You’ll be so happy with downloadable pdf plans, you will wonder why you never bought them before. All kinds of projects will be calling out your name.


They sure call out mine!

    A farm shed on the property where you need it. This would save loads of time bringing stuff to and from the field. I am sure that there are plenty of designs that will work for my needs. But I never thought of leaving equipment in the field where I need it.

      Yeah, we have family friends in Ohio with a HUGE farm and this is what he does in his fields. Says it saves him all kinds of effort.

    I never thought about this until I read your post. But I take stuff back and forth from one field to the barn all the times – now I will put up a building on the field where I need to have that equipment and save the energy for something more productive.

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you ought
    to publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t speak about such subjects.

    To the next! Best wishes!!
