Congrats! We just built one this spring, and it has improved the quality of life around here. Wish we'd done it years ago.

Sounds like the barn is going to be nice. I can only imagine your anticipation level. Hope all continues to go smoothly

did you order a pre fab red iron metal building from one of the brokers ? Im in process of doing same thing


no i'm going wood. the steel was too much for me.. i just figured the materials myself and ordered them all through the cheapest channels. i have around 15k in materials so far and i have to buy my posts and concrete..

i did help build one of those red iron buildings one time and they are nice..

Sounds like nice shed. I like the "ambience " of a wooden frame shed but over here the wood costs about twice as much as a steel frame plus labour to build would twice as much. We have a system of building in steel here that is very economical and strong (highest cyclone rating is easily achieved) it uses a lot of light C section and top hat purlins that are rolled sheet metal into a top hat shape that will span large widths for the sheeting to be screwed on.

Top hat purlins sounds like stringers used in aircraft. Aircraft are mfg similar to a steel building. As there are frames every 20 inches are so and the stringers attach to the frames and then the skin is attached to the stringers.
