I contracted with a well known local barn builder to build me a pole barn. They showed up on Thursday morning, it rained till almost 11 am, they worked till 3 pm and it came a flood, so they knocked off for the day. Showed up at 6 am on Friday morning, and completed the job by 2 pm Friday afternoon. These fellas don't mess around. 5 man crew, including the boss.

Nice barn... I like wood buildings but man steel is my favorite as you don't have to worry about carpenter bees and such

Strictly a inquiry did you get a quote on a metal building that size compared to the wood ?

No, the guy that built our mechanical barn did this & we're having him put a larger one in another pasture. It's technically considered a non-permanent structure, primarily for tax purposes but I think KS is considering changing that allowance. His crew dug a shallow trench & poured cement for the perimeter base and simply stacked the interlocking cement blocks (think Legos) then added the trusses & secured the roof. We're thinking about adding a couple posts at each end so we can temporarily rig up some old cattle gates or panels & use it as a makeshift catch pen. The cement keeps them cool in the summer (like being in a basement) and during the winter I put out straw plus it's facing south so they don't get the north wind & stay pretty toasty. No bread storage :( but there's actually a lot of room for storage on the top of the side walls where the roof inclines.
