The ground sloped up in the back portion of the building so I cut it down and just pushed the dirt out of the way that day. I do have excellent dirt on my property thats for sure! And the inside is on a 7" compacted base before concrete.

How's Wick been so far? I'm hoping to do one very similar to this within a year but there's a lot of companies to choose from and the prices are all pretty similar.

Congrats by the way, should come in handy.

I will get more pics up tonight. Wick has been good to deal with. I got bids from Cleary, Morton, and Wick. Wick was the cheapest, but I know the builders. I wanted Morton but damn, 10 grand more!

There is noo framing either hahah. Our town would never allow that here. But it looks like a decent economical shop.

Why won't your town allow pole buildings???

They do allow pole buildings but with more poles. Doesnt look like that would hold a snow load.

Snow load is not typically the problem with pole buildings, usually it is wind load that makes them difficult to design. Hard to engineer pole buildings (Not for farm use), but it can be done. One I designed is attached.

Building is 40 wide and 54 deep. These buildings are very common in this area, along with the Midwest.
