If you do it yourself it will be half the cost, way better quality, and customized to your needs. If you are doing a grate beam I would do it before it gets cold. We used ICF forms to do our garage grade beam and it worked well. It has insulation around it so all you would have to cover would be the top if it was cold.

If a person has the time,and equipment pole buildings aren’t very complicated to build. Just have to be sure every thing is square.

We did not have the time or equipment to do it ourselves but we were very happy with our crew. They did not put it up over night, they took their time and seemed to put a lot of care into it. They used a lot of bracing in the walls and rafters and their finishing work was very nice. My theory is they build this way because their name is on the building. They put together the package and build it themselves, they aren’t just a crew building another companies package.

Newshams. That was our experience with them. Very satisfied customers. One overhead door wasn’t installed when that wind storm hit last fall. I was at home thinking for sure the wind would get in there and push out a wall or knock it down, but she didn’t move!

Have heard good things about them. Nothing bad actually.

Well it turns out a fellow standing in with the harvest crew does cement and buildings locally so it’s looking up!

They’re on a project now so I can look at their work in progress.

Way out of my element but when you say insulated blocks it’s the ones you snap together and fill with pump truck to make what I call the footing?

I'll second this. Went to elementary school with a few of them, Cory has been doing a fair bit of our electrical jobs at the farm, good work all around

As to the original topic, we have tended to do as much of our own as possible within reason. Grandpa ran a construction company in a previous life, so we do still have a decent collection of professional grade tools from the 60s and 70s, built heavy and still lasting. But we did hire out 80% of the work on our newest dairy farm, lots of specialized concrete work that they did way better than we could've and way higher rafter lifts than anything we have equipment for

One of the concrete companies in my area says to build all the walls out of ICF and concrete. He claims that the cost is quite close to a stick building that is insulated and and that you have a whole lot better building. It would be interesting to see some of the shops he has build.
Two of my friends just put up steel buildings for shops last year. They are very nice.
Just a couple of ideas to consider besides a wood frame building.

What did they do for insulation on the steel building? Spray on?
