looking to put up a storage building

Thinking of sizes from 50 x 80 to 60 x 120. what would be the best and cheapest to put up, can tarp buildings handle the wind in central alberta out in the open with no shelter

Barn
I wouldn't do a tarp building if it was free. Seems every couple years guys here with them have to retarp them due to wind.

I don't the price difference but your putting up a shed that you want to last 50+ years or 10? Currently putting up a calving barn, wood frame, 56x96x14 for $74k, concrete included on feed apron and approach.


Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.

Go ahead, do your own pricing. I think you should. But at the end of the day a tarp shelter in almost all practical cases will be too close to the same price as a wood structure. And in the end you will have a tarp and not tin. You don't need to be an engineer to figure which will last longer.

Up here in northern AB $74k would just be the concrete

Speaking from experience, you can never have a shed too big. If I could store all my equipment, including attachments, inside I would.
We went with 80' wide with a 50' bi-fold. Yes those big doors are expensive but having the width allows you to access a number of machines without having to move everything to get at it. If you are running wide headers, it's nice to be able to run the combine and header into the shed before a rain.
I have heard the post frame builders are pretty slow this year. You may be able to get a better price then you think by calling around.

I have done price comparison many times and pole shed always wins (unless going wide, then steel). On a 60x200 hay shed the canvas/plastic building was significantly more, that surprised me. But nothing is cheap up here.

Yeah. Bigger the better. We have 50 x 100. Heated. If we would do it again 100x100 steel frame with piles. No pole shed not strong enough. 100x100 is a lot of $$$$.

Nothing is cheap anywhere. Every time I price something it a arm and three ****
