Re: Pole Style Building vs. Stick Building

Looks like a great shop, John! So cool you can draw what you are getting. Are you going to do some kind of floor drains?

Re: Pole Style Building vs. Stick Building

No floor drains Doug.

I put some in the first building I ever did, back in the early 80's... and never used them.

Material for the barn is due to arrive Monday.. 10-26-2015. If there isn't a flurry of activity here this week I'm going to be one pissed off fella.

I've attached an outline drawing showing how I plan to build the interior floating perimeter walls. I'm using some cross bracing to move the loading down into the columns. This reduces the vertical deflection / stresses considerably in the center of the panels that result from hanging wall cabinets.

Why 2 piece wall construction, with upper and lower sections?
The building has a 2x6 wainscot girt mounted horizontally. That will become the transition between the upper and lower wall sections. See "Detail B & C" in the drawing for a visual.
  • The upper wall 16" on center studs allows for more fasteners to attach the wall cabinets to the studs.
  • The lower 24" on center studs are for attaching the T1-11 interior siding to the walls / building columns.





Here's the Finite Elements screen shot of the lower wall:

10-25-2015 Lighting Layout

I had a chance to do some CAD layouts of the lighting for the pole barn. I ended up with (3) lighting circuits:

(8) LED flood lights in the main "high" bay work area,
(5) LED flood lights above the workbench,
(4) LED's in the storage areas.

I figure I'll wire it for this.. if I need more light I'll go from there.

Re: Pole Style Building vs. Stick Building

Ha!!!---you're way over my head on this stuff!!! I just built my interior walls in my pole barn like in anything else, and put a sub-floor on top it for my loft. Been fine for over 20 years. I built houses for several years in my younger days and managed to remember how to do some of that. Now I want to build an extension to the sub-floor from the office over 10 more feet to another exterior wall.

I'm much messier than you and sure kick myself in the a$$ for not doing some kind of floor drainage but the budget was maxed out. I'd love to be able to wash and squeegee the floor now and then.

Looks like a great plan and the result will be awesome, John!

100 Watt LED flood lights. You can get them from Home Depot for about $22.00 dollars. They screw into an old school Edison style socket and use only 15 watts of electricity... and they last for 22 years .

Or so that's the story. Here's a link: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Philips-1...5016/205213868
