You are one fast SonofaGun at those pole barns.

If I could afford it, I'd bring you out here to build a couple for me on the ranch.

Sure, I'll come build you a couple......better save up though, it'll be a heck of a bill for the commute

So I need to order a hip cap for the porch. How does one figure what angle to tell the steel shop to bend the cap at? It's a 4/12 pitch.

I'm guessing they'll know, but just in case.....

Finished up the footings today, starting foundation layout tomorrow.
Job was shut down for a day until the engineer submitted a rewritten report on the cut back bank.

I'm going to need to need a steal building on wherever we build. I was going to do it myself but I really like the idea of someone else busting their ass in the heat in a matter of days. Because the other option is me busting my ass in the heat for weeks. How many days would it take 2 respectable Carpenters and myself to do that?

I struggled with hiring out our addition to our shop. At the end of the day the guys showed up and worked...and 2.5 days later were done. It would have taken my partner and I way longer and we also would not have been out billing work. It was nice coming back to progress. They do pole barns all year long and are proficient at it...we do not ever do pole barns... something to consider.

Kinda where I'm at right now. There's a lot of guys out there who like big, heavy, fast moving work. That's just not my bag these days and I'll stop and look at it, then look at it from the other side, then try to re-engineer a better way after I started one way, then finally start. Rinse and repeat everyday for a week until I got a frame up knowing it's perfectly square and plumb, but that it's cost me a **** load more money doing work I dislike on a frame where other guys could have had it skinned already.

That being said, I just read Marks thread... I'll probably do it anyhow

I will run all my pipe for electric though because I wouldn't even want to imagine what it would cost me in change orders moving machinery around a thousand times over.

Run in floor electrical duct. While you're at at it run in floor dust collection duct.

Two respectable carpenters = 2-1/2 days.

Add you to the crew = 2-1/2 weeks. Plus the two respectable carpenters will never talk to you again.

Let the guys do it!

But what if you don't know what the perfect layout is or what if you ever want to change it?

That's the advantage to floor duct, you can tap it every few feet.

I'm not sure the dust collection duct can be done the same way.

I have a buddy who ran dust collection in floor and hates it. Here you have to remember everything is slab on grade. No changing layout if you get something new and have to move stuff around.
