Pole Shed - Day 2 of Construction

26 ratings | 3877 views
Day 2 - The Amish crew arrives bright and early along with a delivery of trusses and steel. By days end the crew has installed all the girts and have the trusses partially attached and ready for a crane to come and set them in place.

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.

I had to cringe when I watched the skids of steel being slid off of the side of the trailer. For those Do-It-Yourselfers, please do not try to offload steel from a trailer this way - it is both dangerous as well as risking damage to the steel. With your eight foot bay spacing, the 2x6 girts flat on the outside of the columns will work, as long as wind loads are fairly minimal: http://www.hansenpolebuildings.com/2012/03/girts/
Thanks for the comment +Mike The Pole Barn Guru! I have to admit, I cringed a little as well when the crew unloaded the steel from the trailer. Thankfully, other than foot prints all over the side of my building, the steel was not damaged. If I were to have done it myself, I would definitely recommend more care when off loading. Also, great blog post on girts. Thanks again for the information!
