A barn arises…

Postby hotte8487 » Sun Dec 18, 2016 12:10 pm

Our new battle ground receives not only a military area, also a little village. A church and some other buildings are present; but a barn is still missing. A typical barn for the area eastern Berlin.
I have researched some photos and then were drawings made. A mixed method of construction is the aim; partly a timbering and the long sides with a clap board closed. The barn has a rectangle floor plan and receive a way through in longitudinal direction. The overall size is round about 0,90 m x 0,60 m; in original were this round about 15 x 9 m and big enough, to pass through with some of our vehicles.
For a minimal weight at this size it receives a skeleton from square pine stripes 10 mm x 10 mm. Now to realization; I’ve started with cutting pine stripes and to assemble the first gable side.

Image

Vertical I’ve used additionally wooden dowels from wooden skewers as at my timbered house. This gives more stability.

Image

The first gable side is almost finished.

Image

I decided me to give my gates archways. The necessary bows were saw from a 10 mm thick board.

Image

The parts were drawn, cut and…

Image

…thereafter glued in.

Image

The counter side is also finished.

Image

My precast side parts for the barn reminds at the sides of a child’s bed…

Image

After subsequently assembly of all single parts was the base framework finished; it follows some struts for a better stability.

Image

Image

Continued soon…

The material costs for the barn should be so low as far; for this reason were the most stripes made from rests of boards and thick boards.
As described receive the barn at the sides clap boards; at the right side additionally a little annex.
Here now the first pictures from the clap board, view and…

Image

…a bit closer.

Image

As at the original I’ve nailed the boards with little nails; also for a good stability.

Image

The first row is completed,…

Image

…many must follow. Now to the annex; the base framework was also built from square pine stripes.

Image

Image

Thereafter I’ve tested my barn on usability; even my kingtiger fits through.

Image

Some adjustments are still needed; later I will come back to this point. Here once some photos from my test…

Image

Image

Image

Continued soon… :wave:

Excellent work Hotte.
The Königstiger could always drive straight through the barn and demolish it !
Be a shame to do that though :)

Today’s theme is the roof construction. One roof part consists of two rafters, a stator and the ceiling beam. They were also made from pine square stripes.

Image

Due to the annex are the rafters of the middle roof parts at one side longer; altogether were four roof parts made.

Image

Image

The annex will be a bit adjusted; the complete roof shall later be removable.

Image

Here once all four parts set up; too note is the cutting at the top ends – here will later the ridge purlin mounted. The ridge purlin has a profile from 10 x 5 mm.

Image

At the gable sides I’ll have a roof overhang; therefore were especially rafters at the outsides mounted.

Image

Here is a view from the side, which shows…

Image

…how the roof construction arises. Both gables receive no stators; here were later still doors mounted. All purlins are flush with the upper edge of the rafters.

Image

Image

Image

Until the next time.

After the mounting of the purlins I’ve glued between the rafters foot purlins to receive more stability.

Image

Thereafter receive my annex the clap boards.

Image

Here is the complete annex construction from inside to see…

Image

…and here once for fitting at the main building mounted.

Image

The clap board at the main building was also slowly finished…

Image

…and the roof gables receives a stiffening as timbering construction.

Image

Here once some photos until here…

Image

Image

Image

Also at the counter side were the clap board mounted…

Image

In the next year it goes on. :wave:

It goes on with finishing the annex. As first were preparations for a door made. These door receive later a pair hinges. The hinges were selfmade; here were the door tapes from a copper sheet with 0,8 mm thickness made.

Image

These sheet stripes were thereafter folded and additionally sold.

Image

The counterparts were made from eye screws with collars; into these eyes were little round brass pieces sold.

Image

The door herself is kept simple; plywood is the base plate inside…

Image

…and at the front side were old ice handles glued.

Image

Both fugues were with thin wooden stripes covered.

Image

Here once the finished door tapes; always with drilled holes for mounting.

Image

Thereafter were the counterparts at the annex mounted; simply drilled and at the backside screwed.

Image

The supernatant at the door tapes were measured…

Image

…and the door tapes mounted to the door with rivet head bolts.

Image

It goes on at the next time. :wave:

Hotte, Good Afternoon,
I believe that you must be one of the Toymasters of old, reincarnated. Fabulous barn work! Will this be a permanent installation somewhere?

You sir, are a master craftsman, I would have no idea where to start with a building of this standard. Great pics, at least we can see how you are building it...and having an immaculate workshop is a good start. :thumbup:

Hello Painless,

thanks for your kindly words. We (the IG-Panzerjäger) build up us currently a new battle ground and for this terrain is this building. But it won't be a permanent installation; after each battle day it comes back in our container. So we have also the possibility to take it with us if we have an exhibition. Have a nice week.

Hello Wibblywobbly,

also to you many thanks for your kind words.
And exactly this is the reason for such a report - all members in the forum can get some inspiration and ideas for a own building. The pics are very important for a better understanding and I promise - it goes so on. Stay curious.

Hello Mr. Bix,

also to you thanks for your reply. :thumbup: But I can calm you down; our members are not more the youngest but in favour good rc tank drivers. And - a little accident should my building survive. I hope so... ;)
