    I have been given permission to put a building up, and so I am starting to look for quotes. I am going to LAMMA in Jan and so will talk to some people there as well.
    Building is 120x60x14. One half is going to be a cattle handling/ housing area and the other half will be for storage. Possibly temp grain storage, but also some hay/straw storage and implement. Possible rain water harvesting as well to feed the drinking troughs, and maybe the occasional sprayer fill up.
    Looking for a quote to include supply and erection of building. Obviously can discuss further works if required.
    Concrete panels to 3m in storage area and 2m in handling area. Gates and feed barriers. Yorkshire boarding.
    Any questions please ask. South Oxfordshire.

    Good luck. Getting quote here has been like getting truth from a politician.

  5. Just out of interest why so low? Only 4’ above concrete panels at eves?

    It is only meant for temporary grain store and so am not looking to put massive amounts in, it will just help with harvest pressure as I am looking to keep 4 crops in a rotation or expand to 5. I also did not want to push my luck as this was on Ag. Not. so not full planning, and deep down want it to be cattle yard. In 2 years time or so I will be putting in for a properish grain store which will be slightly taller, but will be done on the 28 day planning.

    whatever your planning is I would still go for at least 15' to the eaves. It is so much better for airflow etc. You will have no bother off the planning dept they will never check up.
    If you want good quality and service it may be worth giving Universal buildings a ring 01299 848012 ask for Jackie
    They have just put up a 140 x40 x15' to eaves for me . They were pounds cheaper than anyone else and the quality is great. I went for galvanised frame so cost a bit more but well worth it. They are very adaptable to what you may want .

    Interesting point . We put feelers out for a quote earlier on this year ,had quite a few back in quite quick. Where we had a problem was building firms wanted to push their ' custom ' buildings. We found Universal Buildings were the only ones prepared to come out on site and discuss what we wanted and they were by far the best quote and building. They got the job ! Very pleased with them

    Thanks. I will consider going to 15, but max height of building is 6m. I may have an issue with a neighbour and so do not want to push my luck too much! I may give them a shout. They are not too far away.

    Yes and no. Have had to do a bit of variation on the building and so am waiting for the council to come back to me.
