Wow! That is AWESOME! Wish we lived closer and could be there to help/witness :-)
Someday we'll be building a barn of our own.

It was a long, good, day.

Now it needs about 75 coats of outdoor paint, and some more windprooding, drainage spouts dug and such... but thanks to the Daughton Family, Tyler, Robert and Melina it went up in one long day!

Looks great - both the end result, and the process (with all the help included) that got it there!

I know that osb board isn't ideal, but before youtell me it will fall apart, know we coating the whole thing with exterrior paint soon. I couldn't buy the plywood - 5 sheets cost too much

Did you put the 2 by 4's with the 4" side facing down?

Your sheep will surely appreciate dry place to rest for the winter.

Don't knock the osb!
Our chicken coop in ALASKA is made of that stuff, UNpainted, and holding up just fine.
In fact... Your new barn looks a lot like our coop!
Good job!

One project done and many more to go. Looks great.

I use osb board for my worm bins. Still going strong after 3 years.

I used OSB for my chicken coop sheep shelter and put 2 coats of paint on the outside. No problems whatsoever!

Was wondering about insulation ... do the sheep huddle together and provide their own warmth, or will you need to add a heater? What a great start! Hope the weather holds off long enough for you to get those first finishing touches done...I remember autumn in New England, the minute you start thinking it's a mild fall, it snows on ya :) Hugs!

As long as they have the option of coming inside to a dry place sheep usually do not need heat. Ours overwintered one year under a tree in BC - all were fine.

A place out of the wind and enough good food are most important.

You can always wrap the barn in Tyvek and put up siding later on if you like. For now, it's done and the girls will be warm and toasty and able to get out of the elements if they like.
