    Default building a pole barn

    Hello Friends

    I am building a 20 x 46 pole barn (24' open carport for boat storage/22' shop
    on the end) A lot of my search subjects led me to this forum due to the number
    of members who have built or know how to construct a post
    /beam building.

    I bought an engineered building from Hanson's and constructing it myself. I have the 15 posts cemented in the ground and plan on pouring the foundation when home next month.Before starting on the trusses and roof.

    I will begin to search for answers to questions I have and thank you all in advance for responses if I ask for your advice and expertise.

    just a suggestion here. we build them complete as a pole barn. then put concrete floors in to avoid issues with permits and innspections... for some reason yyou dont need a permit if you pour concrete in a pole barn after construction. if you pour concrete before building barn then they require a permit....... good luck have fun and stay safe... and send pics during process....

    Thanks for the welcome comments.

    I am building the open carport section for boat storage, but looking for a tractor, bush hog, disc to maintain acreage in MS. Any links to used equipment
    in my area would be appreciated. Watching ebay and MS farm market bulletin.

    The building is in a residential neighborhood and had to permit it through the city. Pouring the slab next just to have a good level work surface for lifting trusses and finishing the building.

    Not seeing how to post pictures?
