Basic package and kit info:
Lumber we use.
Standard post are 6x6 posts. All packages and kits we list on E-Bay work with 6x6 pressure treated posts unless stated otherwise.
Purlins will be 2x6 yellow pine. The length and quantity will vary barn kit to barn kit.
Steel Truss and Lean-to info.
Our clear span gable trusses will require assembly. Trusses are manufactured in two peices. Hardware to assemble peices into one truss included.
Steel trusses, both gable and lean-to's, are designed with purlin clips to easily screw or nail purlin during installation.
Standard trusses will have a 10' OC placement unless the listing states otherwise.
Lean-to's can be added to either side of the pole barn to acheive a raised center isle barn used commonly for livestock.
Through bolts, nuts and washers will be supplied to attach trusses to the posts.
Plenty of screws will be included for attaching purlin.
29 gauge, silver galvalume metal sheeting will be used to cover the roof. Silver is the standard color for all packages. Color options are free upgrades.
Prior to purchasing your kit we can provide a color chart for you.
Silver galvalume ridge cap with plenty of 1 1/2" roof screws are included.
Facia, drip edge or other enclosure material NOT included in the base package or kit unless the listing states it is included. These peices will be offered as an upgrade.
Options and upgrades.
1.) Please decide upon a width and length of your building. Length must be in increments of 8, 10, or 12 feet.
2.) Decide upon which upgrades you will need for your pole barn.
3.) Contact us through ebay with the base kit you are interested in. In this message please include this info with inquiries so we can provide you with an accurate estimate:
State, County, Zipcode
Width, Length and Eve Height
Any other options or upgrades
Eve Height Adjustments
Eve heights for our steel truss pole barn kits and packages are standard at 10'. All E-Bay listings will have a 10' eve unless otherwise specified. Any height over 10' will require an upgrade from 6x6 posts to 8x8 posts. The 8x8 posts can be used to acheive an eve height up to 14'.
Extreme Wind Upgrades
Engineering a pole barn would require adjustments to our base kit.
We are able to offer Florida engineering only.
If you live out of state you would need to find an engineer for your county/state. We cannot give a price until we see the plans that the engineer drafts. Engineering for extreme weather will affect nearly every part of the pole barn and can raise the base price by 20%-60% or more depending on a multitude of variables.
Extreme Snow Load Upgrades
As Florida does not concern itself with snow load, you would be required to find an engineer local to you to draft your plans. Again, as with the high wind load, we cannot provide a price until we see the plans that are drafted. Extreme snow load pole barns may increae 30%-70% of the pole barns base price depending primarily on your area and the engineer drafting the plans.
Package vs. Kit
A "Pole Barn Package" indicates that we will provide all lumber, hardware and any other optional upgrade materials "as is". These peices will need to be cut and marked as we only gather the materials you require.
A "Pole Barn Kit" indicates that we will provide all the lumber, hardware and any other optional upgrade materials cut and marked. There will be lumber that still needs cut and marked throughout the construction process that we can in no way cut and mark prior to assembly. Materials that will be cut and marked would be purlin and any other material requested through upgrades. Again, we cannot cut and mark all peices. There are somethings that cannot be completed until you are in the construction process (i.e trimming of posts, marking and drilling through bolt holes, etc).
All pole barns we list on E-bay are packages unless otherwise stated.
You can purchase the "Kit" form as an upgrade.
Shipping will be unique to each barn and the distance from our shop. Local deliveries can be handled by us for smaller pole barns. For larger Pole Barns, 2 full dedicated 48' flatbeds may be required to ship the pole barn. Pick up is available if you have your own trailer or would like to set up shipping through your own source.
