Good to see your posts last longer. Pressure treated posts here in the UK will last typically 8-10 years in the ground for clay soil (shortens life by trapping moisture). I guess they have a standard process for treatment here.. either that or we need to be getting our posts from the US. The system clearly works or you wouldnt be using it! Keep up the good work.

The internet is amazing but can be horrible at the same time it’s given people the chance to share there opinions (not all good) because there opinions have never been herd plus these people listen to what others say and use that opinion with out actually understanding the right reasons behind it. Mike I love the way you come across and explain it hopefully the haters and none builders can listen and learn from you keep up the good work if they don’t like it they can leave and watch someone else

I had to laugh about you talking about everyone telling you should do it this way or that way. Seems like everyone needs to throw their two cents into the mix. We have a circle driveway that is over 700 feet long and another portion (about 100 feet) that leads to our garage. About two years ago, there was a company that was removing the asphalt road in front of our house. The guy came and asked my wife would like for them to use that old asphalt on our lower driveway to our garage. They would level our driveway, lay the asphalt with new tar and compact it. Of course, for a price. My wife checked out about having it poured in concrete, which cost a lot more. My wife told them no. Now we are regretting that decision. Hide sight is 20/20. Afterwards, I found out that because it was a driveway, it is best to have the asphalt driveway than a concrete driveway due to our winters. The concrete would crack and chip away where the asphalt is more durable and easier to repair if needed. Especially since I do use salt, even on my gravel driveway. So you have used a proven method for your neck of the woods and I would say do it. You have a plan on the building and it seems it works for your family. I cannot wait to see the final product and I really enjoy watching the stages of the building.

There's nothing wrong with the way the posts are set in and I don't see telephone electrical poles being put in with concrete because they are treated and last a very long time. They used to even burn half of the telephone pole length. How do I know? I once found an old telephone pull that looked all charred up 5 ft above the ground. Don't listen to the naysayers, just keep fighting the good fight!

The real reason why this building is going up the way it is and the reason why it will last forever is because of the crew building it. Amish/Mennonite have been in the constructions business for hundreds and hundreds of years. They know a thing or three......

In NC, the building inspector said I can do the pad and post like you are doing or a concrete peer with 6 inches above ground because they assume you will not use pressure treated posts. Both have to be a minimum of 3 feet deep because I will have 15 foot posts. I can also pour concrete around the post in the ground, but it still has to be on the pad like you have.. All are acceptable methods in the national building code, I think he said 2012 version.

Excellent Mike! Not only was this video informative on the pole barn construction options, but you demonstrate civility with class while addressing those comments which had disagreed with you. Somewhere with all this social media available, society forgot it is ok to disagree, but to do so respectfully. I wish more people could remember this. Anyway, barn looks great. I put tamarack posts in the ground twenty years ago in New England, milled by a local sawyer, and I coated the six inches around the ground with used motor oil. They are as solid today as they were when I put them in. Good luck with the rest of the build, looking forward to the updates!

Nothing wrong with pole barn construction, way cheaper than digging foundation and footings. Only issue to me is life expectancy? If this property was up for sale in 20 or thirty years I don't think the barn would add value.

You should ask the crew how many of this style buildings they build in a year and how long they have been at it, you’ll be fine, again, different regions different soil conditions, different code requirements. If you did set those posts in in concrete they would rot fast as the concrete wouldn’t allow for proper drainage around the posts. You’re fine. In regards to building size, you have to set your limit somewhere, the bigger the building, the more stuff will find its way in, and you’ll still need more space.

Concerning the post controversy. Norm Abrams of This Old House sets his fence posts in dirt except for the corners which he recommends be set in gravel. He maintains that concrete wicks moisture up against the posts and promotes rotting. I would prefer not concrete doughnuts but cut stone at the bottom of the posts and gravel to set the them. For what it's worth the method used in this hobby barn would be perfectly acceptable to me as I would not try to tell pros their business.

Thanks Mike. Curious if you also did a price comparison for a "floater" garage? I think it could be a similar price to your current setup. I'm sure you're familiar with this method....... but, you don't dig any footings, then put 8" layer of 2B limestone down, put one row of concrete block where the walls would be and stick-frame 2x6 walls on them. Concrete price, truss price, and roof would all be the same. You would need more 2x6's and plywood with the floater method..... but you wouldn't needed the 30 ish posts?? I was just curious to learn how these 2 methods would stack up financially?? Thanks!!
Jeff Sandford
Jeff Sandford Ай мурун
Mike you are so right in that there are so many ways to build and equally as many international/regional building codes. I have looked at construction methods that would make you cry but somehow last decades. In fact my parents owned a 500 year old house built with rock and horse hair/clay cement. Guess what, it is still there. In my opinion what you are doing from an engineering perspective is perfectly fine in most cases. Some say even better to not have concrete as is holds moisture next to the surface interface creating more chance of rot. The only time you need concrete is generally in high wind zones. Bracing can also deal with wind force and avoid the need for deep anchorage. Once you have your floor poured you will tie the posts to the pad and again will not get any subsidence or lift. I think if you experience any natural force that will take down this building you may consider relocating to another country:-) "I hear New Zealand is a good option for Americans" He He Looks like a great space. I built a good sized shed myself. My neighbour said, 'the reality now is you will fill it up'. He was so right!! I Need a bigger shed......

Ha Mike funny when I built my pole barn 8 years ago in northern Michigan with the frost freeze line which you guys get in Pennsylvania if you don't put concrete in and let's set up and then build the rest of the frame without coating it with oil or lubricants you're not going to get a solid base set up put me up there on your comments you're putting shell on top your base is all dirt the dirt is loamy it's not going to keep the polls straight I've seen this from several barns that have been built around me so go ahead and call me out they're doing it the cheap way would be great to get a response from you Mike. Oh and by the way you're getting free tractors from Kubota Kubota is a Japanese company so anyone that buys one the money goes back to Japan doesn't stay in America hope all the year subscribers understand that

I watched this video again so I could watch your funny little deck walk to safety. LOL . That was a very clever way to get your point across Mr Morgan.😉 I still can't believe you didn't crack up laughing while shooting that part of the video. I was laughing this time because you were being so serious but I understand why since you were attacked for your choice of letting them Amish dudes bury your lumber in dirt. So funny. Termites down here in NC would love it if guys buried there poles in dirt. The building would get sorter every yr as they chomped away . But honestly they build pole barns down here to and im sure there's ways to go about protecting the poles in the dirt. I watch Shaun James on his KGpost channel up in Canada this past week.hes building an under ground root cellar and he took a torch to all the timbers and boards to char it really well to protect it and outside wrapped the outside walls in some sort of sticky back water proof membrane then shoveled stone around all of that for good drainage. Im sure that's going to last for a very long time. Not sure if charring those polls they put in dirt for your building would have helped or not.they get such deep frozen ground up there in Canada so about have to do that up there. But yours is going to be just fine in eastern PA. Keep your head up buddy, cant let negative people rain on your parade. Its all good in your neighborhood. Peace ✌ Go Trump ☝️🤞

The facts as I know them having lived in Western NY and SE Alabama: Water and frost lines are the problem over time. I've seen what both will do to wood in the ground. Down here its water and insects. I don't care what kinda wood you use, water will eventually rot wood. You must do your very best to keep water away from the bldg and surrounding area. I've seen wood rot even with concrete, even with tar. What we see above ground looks good and strong. It's what's going on down under that counts. There's really no right or wrong but I have always felt that overkill is best when it comes to earth touching wood.

👍🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🗽🙏🏻 Enjoyed! My experience with post rotting is when you pour concrete in the hole around the post to the top. This holds moisture and doesn't allow water to drain away from the post and the post rots right at the top of the concrete. Your shale should drain well, also you will have concrete around 3 sides of your post when you pour the floor...! Love your building, are you going to have a bathroom(s) and a wood stove?😊 I have a wood stove in my garage, and have coffee and watch "OUTDOORSWITHTHEMORGANS" while sitting by the fire!

Hi Mike! Great start to your building. As far as talking about how to set your poles for your pole barn it is looking good. In 2011 I had a pole barn built and it is a 50'X80' with a 10'X50' lean and the inside is 16' high. When we set our poles they are 8' apart and we poured approximately one foot of concrete in the bottom of the 4.5' holes. The poles are treated 6"X6" and were installed the next day after pouring the concrete in the bottom of the holes. We then backfilled the holes with washed gravel most of the way up then finished the last ten inches or so with dirt. When the building was enclosed and nearly finished we poured the 5-inch concrete floor with some steel and wire mesh and of course, the concrete floor is poured around three sides of the poles. I also had macro-fiber added to the concrete to try and help it stay together when it cracks, and it will someday but should stay together much better. All concrete poured on my place has macro-fiber in the concrete. Here we are 9 years later and it still looks great with very minimal cracking and zero evidence of any rotting of the posts. Of course, we saw cut the concrete but it seldom cracks where you want it to. The only crack we have that you can see if you look hard enough is where it follows the floor drain pipe to go outside the building. I highly recommend the macro-fiber (not the micro-fiber, as the macro is much much stronger) and also be sure to have a floor drain or two, it always comes in handy. We just daylighted it to the outside hillside. I really enjoy watching your videos and what you and Mellisa are doing at your place, keep up the good work!

Tell the others that it is what was acceptable for the area and if they don't like it, oh well. As you said it is your building and with the normal practice of the area then who cares what the others say. I have seen people who build with specs that are way above what is required and that is fine if they want to afford the extra expense then that is up to the buyer and his builder. I am sure the builder would not let their name go on the building if it was not an acceptable practice in that area. IT IS YOUR BUILDING AND NOT THEIRS!
