Thanks, no particular reason on not using telephone pole. Always had it in my head to use tubing.

Willing to bet they do the wood forms just outside these bags leaving perimeter beams but I could be wrong.

Bags are used alot in foundations around here

Nice build thanks for sharing

The fill bags are used on the high side and are tamped down as you lay them. They give you a “stop” to compact your fill too.

You’re right. The forms for the turn down beam will go outside the post.

Bought the trusses. 2x6 top and bottom cords made to accommodate 4’ spacing and reinforced where they catch the middle beam.

Ordered them from a local outfit called Trussmate. You could probably find someone closer to you.

Looks great Just a thought for those planning on a barn or shop.
I built a hay barn with 4x6 and 4x4 using steal truss's in a 30 by 60
and used 5 purlin's on each side. Bolted the truss's to the 4x 6.
There is a 20 ft span between trusses . Used self tapers to secure every thing.
No welding

Got the pearlins on a couple of weeks ago then stalled out with the rain. Got back to it today and completed the roof except for ridge cap. 32 21 1/2’ sheets were bulky but went on pretty easy once we got ‘em up high.
