"Sheds are what a farmer adds to a barn when he or she built the barn too small in the first place.

Good one!

My prior comments notwithstanding, I do have a tendency to say to myself "OK, time to head for the barn" when I finish mowing with the 'ol 2520....

My grandfather raised and trained horses when I was young. He had a large stable 120x60, for brood mares my granny called a "barn" he called it "the w.h.o.r.e. house" granny didn't like that, but they each never changed their position!

So I agree with the guy's that say, let it go:D

What to they say about being single vs married, it's the difference between being lonely or aggravated, sooo settle for being aggravated since you are going to be wrong.

Call it "Terry" or "Chris". Avoids "barn" & "shed" & avoids implying it's either masculine or feminine.

For example, if it has concrete, electric, and overhead doors, I'd call it a garage or shop.
So a diary barn, for milking cows, that has concrete for sanitary reasons is called a dairy garage? A dairy shop?

When I finish renovating it, it will have heat, insulation, full wiring, overhead doors, etc. Maybe "shop" is the best option but I think I will take the most common and practical advice and just continue trying to think twice and say "barn". Even when I get it heated and insulated, I'm not crazy about sleeping out there.

By this definition I guess it is a barn, 'cause it sure is ugly right now (but I intend to fix it). :laughing:

What you need to do is tell your wife how much you love her and since this is such a sore subject that because of your love for her you are going to fix it up and turn it into a shop. Tell her that love is the most important thing and money is no object. Of course not to be mistaken as anything other than a shop it needs lots of shop tools. :thumbsup:

Sounds vaguely familiar to the "dinner then supper" vs. "lunch then dinner" debate my wife and I once had. Just learn to call it something different, so long as you know what it is. LOL
