I am building a 40 x 64 pole barn for a customer. We had the poles set carriers and purlins on ready for trusses when we got a huge wind.....it about took my barn down.
It just about completely blew down the front wall....
My two sons and I headed over with truck and chains, cables, towstraps to bring it somewhat back upright before it went completely down.
So after getting things back to where they needed to be....plumb, level, square, braced...... replacing broken carriers and purlins as well as losing 2 weeks of time in the processs.....yesterday we got the sheething almost completely wrapped up, now if any winds flatten it I am going south for the winter.
Next step...shingled roof, soffit & facia.
Then on to vinyl siding.
I had this building braced well when the winds hit, but they were so strong that nails were pulled right out of the bracing/posts. We re-braced it when we got it upright and this time I didn't trust 16 c.c. nails....I drove in 4" ring shanks. Those shanks were a bugger to pull off the bracing, but at least I wasn't worried about losing it again.
