Bloody **** they're not mucking around, how many in the crew? how long until they think it'll be finished? Looking good!

Yeah that crew is quite efficient. It's amazing how fast people get at working once they've done it a lot, farmers might be the only exception to this rule.

Interesting .we are considering that sort of building as well . What is used to tamp the posts in the ground and is there any gravel etc used around the posts to keep them straight and not sink over time ? Would it be possible to get a closeup of the post(s) at ground level ? Thanks

Think they have 5 guys working. Said it would take six days and that is including putting tin on the roof inside. Never saw them standing around and doing nothing yet.

They are putting 1 inch crushed rock around the posts to tamp them in with. Nothing underneath them.

But can you get a 20 ft wall with a stud frame building? Without a tall grade beam I mean.

Wow. Posts 4 ft apart? Down here in Wis the norm is 8 to 9 ft. End walls 10 or so. Our shop was built in the early 80's with trusses at 4 ft. Thats nice because the 2 by 4's lay on top and we figured it 4 ft was close enough for the steel ceiling. We didnt have to frame anything. Steel then 12 inches of insulation on top. I'll do my next shed that way too.

I think pole is the only way to go. You get that extra strength from the ground as long as the poles are heavy enough. Seen a couple stud framed buildings having to be pulled back straight again after a wind storm went through. 2 pole framed shops that were in the worst possible spot for that wind storm never moved an inch

I am building a pole shed (Goodon) and planning to finish it as a shop - it was a most cost effective option for me. I am concerned about how long it will last but I figured it would out last me... What do others think?
