Well do to some changes around here it looks like I will be building a new shop. I have close to 30 white pinelogs stacked waiting for cutting. Most are over the 25" + across, some 35" +. I am thinking of useing suno(sp?) for the pillirs and placeing the post on them. If I go this route then I will not need to buy pt post, which will save me a big chunk of change. For the floor I was thinking going with a few inches of gravel packed and platic over it. Then I can lay a wooden floor for now. Other option is to go with a stick built method and pour a trench footer and bulid of that. By the way, there are no building codes in that town. Size will be around 30'wx60'lx10' ceiling. Trusses are still not decided if we are going to go w/ prefabed or built on site. I have 6+ acres on the new site and hardly any houses around me. Ideas good or bad are welcome. Plan on useing tin for the outside unless I can get ply and siding cheaper.
