Day 3 - The crane arrived first thing in the morning and away the crew went to get the trusses installed. About an hour later they were all set in place. By the end of the day most of the roof panels were installed.

The Difference Between Post-Frame and Pole Barn
While the two terms refer to the same type of building, “pole barn” happens to be slightly more dated.
Historically, these buildings were called pole barns because builders used poles — similar to telephone poles — to support the rafters making up the roof of the building.
Eventually builders began constructing with square columns which, compared to round poles, were easier to work with. Now builders use laminated columns, which are much stronger and allow post-frame structures to be utilized for many purposes.
The term “pole barn” also originates from when buildings were not as technically and deliberately engineered. “Post-frame” is more correct, as it more accurately reflects the engineering and quality of the structure built.

Thanks +Mike The Pole Barn Guru! Assembling the roof in sections on the ground seemed to make for a much more efficient process and of course the crane made light work of getting them into place. Fun to watch!
looking good. now that is the first time i have ever seen a roof installed like this. are them 2/8's between the rafters? i suppose it saves on the cost of rafters -right. here we use all rafters at 16 inch centers, on account of heavy snows. thanks for shareing-thanks.
Thanks BigJim57! They are 8' - 2x6's between the rafters and are to code for the snow loads in our area. I'm sure they will be tested in a few months when the snow starts to fall and collect on the roof!
Facilities for business continuity may include alternate workspace equipped for continuation of business operations. Alternate facilities may be owned or contracted including office space, data center, manufacturing and distribution.
Systems for emergency response may include detection, alarm, warning, communications, suppression and pollution control systems. Protection of critical equipment within a data center may include sensors monitoring heat, humidity and attempts to penetrate computer firewalls.
Every building has exit routes so people can evacuate if there is a hazard within the building. These exit routes should be designed and maintained in accordance with applicable regulations.
Business continuity resources may include spare or redundant systems that serve as a backup in case primary systems fail. Systems for crisis communications may include existing voice and data technology for communicating with customers, employees and others.
Equipment includes the means for teams to communicate. Radios, smartphones, wired telephone and pagers may be required to alert team members to respond, to notify public agencies or contractors and to communicate with other team members to manage an incident.
Many tools may be required to prepare a facility for a forecast event such as a hurricane, flooding or severe winter storm.
Materials and Supplies.
Materials and supplies are needed to support members of emergency response, business continuity and crisis communications teams. Food and water are basic provisions.
Systems and equipment needed to support the preparedness program require fuel. Emergency generators and diesel engine driven fire pumps should have a fuel supply that meets national standards or local regulatory requirements. That means not allowing the fuel supply to run low because replenishment may not be possible during an emergency. Spare batteries for portable radios and chargers for smartphones and other communications devices should be available.
