It’s finally time for Pa Mac to add a few finishing touches to his new workshop, hang his tools up, and settle in to this old fashioned pole barn, made with homemade lumber using a chainsaw mill. This 6th installment of the Building a Pole Barn series is the 12th episode which brings to an end volume one of The Farm Hand’s Companion Show. Be sure and subscribe to the Farm Hand’s Companion channel to keep up with the progress as Pa Mac takes an undeveloped piece of property and turns it into a small subsistence farm. Watch for new episodes as often as Pa Mac can crank ’em out and still run a farm. (As long as he’s alive and kicking, he’s most assuredly farming and filming!) Also visit to find articles, posts, photographs, and encouragement for today’s self-sufficient farm or homestead.

    Started watching your shop build video while my wife watched tv. No sound so I wouldn’t interfere with her show. But I couldn’t stop. Had to see you finish. Loved it. Want to build my own. BRAVO. I AM A FAN.

    That was the answer I was hoping for. Most of the trees I have access to are cedar, oak (red and white), hickory and if God is willing, some walnut. My biggest challenge will be to dig in this Arkansas dirt then lifting 32 foot polls. Might just wear me out.

    I have watched all your videos on the barn. I've started to collect my polls from a friend down the road. The longer ones will be center support for a two story, took out my mailbox with last load LOL, they were 17 feet longer than my trailer. Anyway, question I have ie when you cut your lumber, did you dry your boards or nail them up fresh cut and green? Thank you

    Wow, what a piece of art. The video, editing, music, acting, the snake, the dog, the pole barn and the work. Thank you.
