    So I had to run some stuff up to Carollton,Mo. the other day . Saw these sitting on a lot. Thought they were pretty cool. 20211210_113717.jpg
     
  2. They would make great gazebos. Looks like one of them already has a stage attached. A small town theater could use one like that. And that structure on the right gave me thoughts of turning one into a backyard Tiki-Bar. The possibilities are endless.:D
     
  3. Oh, you did say "Redneck". You could turn one into a luxurious "no pit" outhouse.:eek:

    Still a ton of them around up here. Too small to use any more for the farm. The bitch of it is deconstructing them and moving. I had a couple from my ex'x farm I was going to use. You almost have to hire a crew unless they are nearby. These were 400 miles away.

    Yeah, I looked into disassembling them. There was one that was sitting next to a new highway they built. It was like 4 miles from here.

    I would have loaded it on the trailer and did a midnight run leaving it as one piece, but someone snagged it. It was basically on the shoulder. Would have been the easiest one to move.

    I saw a picture the other day of a guy that looked like he was using one for the exhaust out of the hood of a Civic.

    The small 1000 bushel ones are easy to move . Dad has a set of bin jacks (3) . They are A shaped with a pulley on top with a hand crank boat winch mounted on the cross brace . Turn the tie down strap on the grain bin straight up . Toss the cable over the pulley and hook it to the strap . Get to cranking on them , raise the bin up , slide a couple long bridge planks across the trailer , back the trailer under it and let it down onto the trailer. Strap it down and head to the house . Some have a metal floor in them that is attached to the wall . Usually the screws are rusted into and the floor will fall away

    I wouldn't mind having a house built from silos....call it redneck or what ever but anyone of these would be pretty nice to live in I think. 16398968496344457361578567281002.jpg 16398967706376007697977628125602.jpg 16398968718933095813913327512581.jpg 16398968020289052558660612761151.jpg 16398969749228873994022374878589.jpg 16398969749228873994022374878589.jpg 16398969106087064630616608340111.jpg 16398969611022969686622325927672.jpg 16398968142496913166429477686037.jpg

    Called grain bins, actually. Got a buddy who is an oiler on dragline. He converted one to open air gazebo like pictured.
    He and his girlfriend sit in it in the summer on his hobby ranch, watch TV and enjoy the prairie sunset.

    Yes, small ones are obsolete in today's large operations, where 40,000-50,000 bushel bins are the rule, rather than the exception.
    Separate the bottom ring, drop remainder into lower ring, and with the help of aforementioned bin jack, load onto trailer, and down the road you go.
     
  14. Yes, We would live in one! And Merry Christmas. 20171202_103835.jpg

    I was wondering where they stored the dance floor?;)

    Being a fan of Steampunk, the house built from 3 could have been a good start on making a Steampunk themed house.
     
  17. .....I keep hearing about this "Steampunk" thing and admittedly I don't know exactly what it's all about. Can someone enlighten me?:)

    Near as I can tell, it is a cultural thing that combines the steam era with futuristic technology. Imagine a Victorian lady in a mini skirt. Sorry if that offends anyone but that's the way my mind works..

    I guess Jules Verne would have fit right in to the steampunk vibe
     
  20. Thanks for that. I think I'm getting it now.:)..Merry Christmas to you and yours there in South Tennessee.:D

    If I ever learn how to get links to work this would be easy. Look up the Neverwas house (I think that's how it's spelled but....). It's a rolling sort of Victorian era house/vehicle/steam driven thing. It's a great representation of the steampunk concept that will appeal to us car freaks!

    Also think The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. It's a good steampunk concept movie.

    20190919_142101.jpg Here's one I did for my wife a couple of years ago , we moved it from my wife's family farm about 50 miles away. Disassembled it and hauled it in two trips in the back of my short box Dakota pick-up !
