I am putting up a 24x30 foot pole garage. Fully insulated(R50 attic, 8" thick bats in walls) with liner steel, 16x9 overhead door, lots of room for my wood shop! Excavation guys just finished prepping the pad to build on, right side had to be brought up almost 4 feet(look at bobcat in back, it is on the lawn). 12 truck loads of gravel and a little over 8 hours labor for 4 guys... was fun being woke up by the gravel packer this morning! It shakes the whole house, feels like an earthquake! So first stage is done, builder is going to start dropping off materials to get the rest going up. He said it will only take his crew about 3 days once the poles are set.
