hey im looking to build a horse barn and was wondering if anyone has used post and beam for the walls then engineered trusses for the roof. I cant really see it being a problem. Anyone see something wrong with this idea?

thanks. this seems cheaper than pouring a frost wall and stick framing it. what size posts have you typically seen. im looking to build it 28ishx36ishx10' high walls. no loft. im not sure what spacing should be. i was thinking 6-8'

Roof trusses don't care what they sit on as long as it is strong enough to support it. Have used trusses on timber frames many times.
