    I was born and raised 20 minutes from Boston, MA. At the age of 17, I was diagnosed with Anxiety. My personal experience with the prescribed medication was NOT POSITIVE. So I decided to find better way. I didn't know it at the time but, that was the BEGINNING for me! I have been “FINDING A BETTER WAY” in all areas in my life ever since. Better ways of how to create a modern homestead affordably, and a better way to provide my family with healthy foods, and so….. much MORE!

    At Lumnah Acres we hope our experiences can help guide you to find YOUR BETTER WAY! Please join us in sharing our journey with you, let us be a guide to Modern Homesteading, Self-Sufficiency, and FREEDOM for you!

    I vote double doors! Not that I build anything, but I feel like it would be easier now to do double doors now rather than later if wisdom is seen after the fact?

    Poor reeky Zeke lol he needed some more time to figure things out!

    Where's your hat, Al?! It looks dang cold as evidence from your red ears and cheeks! Gina, make him wear his hat. We can't have Al's ears falling off. He needs them to do...stuff ;) Stay warmy!

      I’d go for double doors gives you both of what you need big access and you can close it up when needed 😊

                If identifying predators is your aim, might I suggest you post a bunch of game cameras with night vision or motion flash around your area?

                    How about tall double barn doors, this way you can accommodate any size equipment in and out!

                      I use solar powered LED lights, they don't stop predators. They still get in and eat the ducks and chicken, eggs, and food that's left over. They get used to them. But, you can tell where they are? Raccoons fighting can sound like all the neighbors cats are fighting to the death.

                      I used several trail camera's along with the lights to trigger the camera at different angles to see what was getting into the pens. When reviewing that footage when you see lights on mark down the time then check another camera to see if you captured it from a different position. I found out that I had skunks, foxes, and raccoons stealing my animals and eggs. Outdoors with the Morgan's reviewed a cordless Bluetooth camera in the woods, might check that out? I think it was a Reolink? When something triggers the camera you get a notification? I believe.

                      Double doors most likely. To keep with ascetic of the barn, enclosed on the left side, enclosed on the right side, like you said, still able to get the tractor in and out

                          You could maybe do slide in doors, sorta like the glass ones you have in the outdoor kitchen but made out of wood. That way you could keep it closed to use it as animal stall if need be or if its big enough, you could keep it open to park the kabota :-)

                            archway like the woodshed to park the tractor in. Then make double doors to close it off, if you want doors.
                            Zeke kinda messed up, so Caleb took care of business, LOL. But Caleb has had a "taste" of the fruit, Zeke just doesn't know what he's missing, poor guy.

                                I hate the snow-warm up, partially melt-rain-refreeze-snow weather pattern. Makes such an icy mess Let’s just have winter and snow!

                                                  make the hole opening a door so it opens up all the way to the top that way you have the most access to get in and out of it if you need to that way you don't have a limited what you bring in and out of there whatever that pipe is on that pitch is what you're going to be able to get something in there that got heightunless you're going through that area a lot like a regular door and you don't want you can put a door inside a door

                                                                                                Or you could do double doors, you make very nice doors!
