A pole barn will be an eventual for tractor, boat and snowobile storage.

I'm thinking that I'm going to talk her into building a fermentation chamber that will not be put into actual use as such until the pole barn is built. She can have it as nice secure storage area to keep the critters out of Christmas decorations and such for awhile. Then as more storage space is created, I get what I want. Not ideal, but can be done on a much smaller budget than tacking a 30' x 40' pole barn on our 5 acres.
I'll either go with an under-counter fermentation cabinet or something along the lines of Boerderij_Kabouter's side-by-side chamber for the interim.
That's the plan for today, it'll change tomorrow.
