Do you know why barns were painted red?







It was the cheapest paint. (no joke)


Oh and I want one.
Nice Set up Milk.

Sounds like a good price for such a large barn. Does this company work in TX. My dad may be interested in a barn in the Decator Tx area (Hr west of DFW and slightly closer to OK)

I don't think I could get it past the ARC! Very strict deed restrictions in the community I live in. Can't even ride a motorcycle in here (gated community).

Is that going to hold up to the winds we get around here? DFW gets some high wind gusts but I thought OK had it even worst.

I was traveling back home today on I-40 and saw your barn. I rememder thinking that would be great to have for a boat and extra storage and the price doesn't sound bad at all! I don't think the neighdors would like that in our subdivision but if I had some acreage I would jump on something like that.

Those metal barns are tough! Don't think I've ever had a claim on one!! Lowest fire rates too$$$.. Hard to burn metal! I like it..:D

Probably tougher then it looks, I just think of the little metal buildings you see in back yards. A local commercial used to have a motorcycle riding on the roofs of his wood sheds and then as the bike transitioned to the metal shed it caved in. (You never know when I might have the desire to ride my bike across the barn roof :)
... but it all depends on how thick the metal is, etc., I just assumed it was about the same construction.

I do agree about the fire damage/ins. I was looking for the pre-fab metal I-beam type buildings that I could use as a base for brick exterior. (I have to get past a HOA) That is what I thought you found, but the price seemed a little too good to be true.

Just as with anything else there's going to be differences in quality everywhere you look, but the quality bldgs are good buys in my opinion. I've seen the same commercial. That is one of the $200 specials from Lowes or Home Depot. Those are POS's:mad: A small wind and they'll be laying upside down in your back yard... Generally speaking the price is much less on a metal bldg than a wood frame. just production costs "pre-fab" everything is done CAD and cut cookie cutter style... Just depends on the guage of steel used..:rolleyes: I am learning that POA's and HOA's are pains in the arse:D

I just stocked up on 1 Shot sign painters paint last week and the price of the Red, Maroon, and Purple [high red pigmented colors] is twice the price as non red colors. The price for most red pigmented paints has skyrocketed across the paint industry because of the removal of lead from the reds, which effects durabilitiy according to articles industry publications.

From How stuff works...... If you want to beleive it.......

" As to how the oil mixture became traditionally red, there are two predominant theories:

Wealthy farmers added blood from a recent slaughter to the oil mixture. As the paint dried, it turned from a bright red to a darker, burnt red.
Farmers added ferrous oxide, otherwise known as rust, to the oil mixture. Rust was plentiful on farms and is a poison to many fungi, including mold and moss, which were known to grown on barns. These fungi would trap moisture in the wood, increasing decay.

Regardless of how the farmer tinted his paint, having a red barn became a fashionable thing. They were a sharp contrast to the traditional white farmhouse.

As European settlers crossed over to America, they brought with them the tradition of red barns. In the mid to late 1800s, as paints began to be produced with chemical pigments, red paint was the most inexpensive to buy.

Red was the color of favor until whitewash became cheaper, at which point white barns began to spring up." :rolleyes:

anchor bolts are installed before the slab is poured.

the one I looked at was simply sitting on the ground, (no anchors) and I shook it from every corner inside and out with everything I had and did not budge!
didn't even creak, moan, or pop!
