  1. Do you have a version of the gambrel roof barn,that has the double door on the front face rather than the end? Maybe just reversing the door placement? I’d like to build a 12×14 version of this with the doors as noted.

  2. Do you have a diagram for building a hummingbird house ? Thank you.

  3. There is no place that the PDF files can be downloaded. I have tried everything that I know. The PDF does not come to my inbox.
