    I love wood siding but the buyers have a limited budget. The lean-to's are in addition to the 36 x 36.

    After waiting for the barn material to arrive, we layed out the footprint. The lumber
    package arrived right before the rain. We are hoping to catch a break in the weather
    mid week.

    After a week of rain we were blessed with fog. Holes are dug and Saturday we
    set poles.

    Thanks Eddie, the reason I needed a 6000# high reach forklift is because we are unloading
    semi truck deliveries. The ''kit'' has been farmed out to a steel, lumber, door and truss
    vendors. I rented the forklift for our use but have spent 6 hours unloading trucks so far
    due to mud and power lines.

    Can you believe that one local company that builds pole barns insisted on 16" centers for trusses and had never heard of purlins. I couldn't decide if they were ignorant or just trying to sell more trusses. ???

    "builds pole barns" or "would like to build pole barns"?
