    Yes we did actually. We had a friend with a saw mill who let us bring logs to cut into the boards for the walls etc, and the large cedar logs we used for cornor posts we cut down ourselves as well.

    Yeah, like at MY place, where it's taken 40-50 years to rot out. You might not even live there anymore by the time that happens. Treated wood will be sufficient. I wouldn't put it in permanently bc of taxes, either.

    Only if you tell them (around here, at least).

    In my area, the ground stays in reasonable condition, in the winter, where I put the horses, but if you dig down 3 feet, you have water. Wood posts in the ground wouldn't work for us.

    Also, we can have a building of 200sqf (or less) built anyway, with no permit. It could have power, water, whatever I want. But no more than 200sqf, regardless if it's on the ground or in the ground.

    We just got one of these horse shelters. Just a 10x20. I love it :) It's very solid, and incredibly sound. I couldn't have built it in the amount of time/money that it cost me to buy it from this guy.

    Mine is floating on sand on clay. Railway ties, are the footings. I just framed on top of them, standard 24" on center. The doorway faced south and a tad east because of the winter prevailings.

    Did you mean untreated wood?

    Does 'PT' mean pressure treated? I think these are the posts we have in our pasture(electric fence).

    If your worried about rotting, you can tar the ends that go in the ground, just make sure its thick and the wood is dry.

    If you have a Home Hardware or similar farm and ranch store nearby, you may be able to buy a livestock shed pre-made, on skids and have it delivered. I bought 2 10x16 sheds from Home Hardware, already built and delivered for about $850 each. They're made with treated lumber and a metal roof and work great. The local farm store UFA makes a 10x24 run in that includes an 8x10 tack/ feed room, also on skids.

    We did that to our posts only we used some type of oil/thinner liquid to treat the ends of the posts. We used a 20x20 carport frame with a roof and built walls around it. We sunk the treated posts in about 2.5 feet and added cement to the holes as well. It wasn't too expensive and it definitely does its job. The horses are always in it and it is big enough for the three horses, 13hh pony and 10hh pony to fit comfortably in it.
