They are used in heavier snow load areas than you're in so shouldn't be a problem
Be sure and run cable braces from top of 1 leg to bottom of other about every other span if you go 14 or 16' tall it makes a big difference
Basically X brace every 2nd or 3rd span if your not sheeting the walls
If sheeting the walls I would still X a couple of them


Thanks for your help!

Do you think I could buy a 100ft barn and make two 50ft barns out of it?
Would I have to buy extra supplies to do so?

50ft $3500
100ft $6000

You could but you got to taking to consideration that a 50' barn with 10' bays takes 6 trusses there will only be 11 trusses in a 100'barn
