How to build a Pole Building
Video Discription: Hello, Iʼm Jenny for Heffernan Construction Company. Today we are going to show you how to build a 24 foot by 32 foot pole building. We hope you find this video useful, and please donʼt forget to subscribe to see our upcoming videos. We used a skid steer with an attached auger saves a lot of time. It digs the holes 18 inches wide by 52 inches deep The concrete is cured solid and ready for the 4x6 treated post to sit on. All 4 corners are set first. They are straightened and plumbed. To assure that the building is square, we pull a diagonal measurement reading both ways. If each measurement is the same, its off to a square start. A treated 2 by 10 is used for the bottom girt board while The remaining horizontal boards are regular 2 by 6s. The vertical boards are 2 by 4s, and they are used on the corners, window & door openings. The nails used are pneumatic 3 1/4 inch and they are ACQ approved for the treated posts. These nails will not rust or corrode due to the chemicals of the treated lumber. For the garage door header we sandwich two 2 by 10s with 1/2 inch plywood glued in between. This header will have minimum weight load since it is on a non bearing wall. It will only have to hold itself, not the weight of the roof load. The roof trusses have a 24 foot span with 1 foot overhang at a 4/12 pitch. They are put 24 inches on center to accept R-38 blanket insulation. They are light enough to manage by hand, if any larger we would use a crane to lift in place. When installing trusses, always read the enclosed safety packet that come with them. It will guide you on how to safely handle and brace them. The roofing material is an energy star rated 26 gauge pre painted panel. The panels were precut to an exact measurement. We use matching color screws with a built in rubber washer to fasten the roof panels. The screw pattern is in a straight line and fastened tight to the 2 by 4 purlins. We used a 32 inch 9 light steel door. It is energy star rated and will swing inward.The pole building gets 5 windows that are also energy star rated. They are double pane, single hung and have built in nail fins. We outsource the gutter work. This company is set up to run very long continuous lengths of aluminum gutter. They install all the hangers, end caps, and gutter sealant. Also the guys punch out the hole and install the downspout drop. Then we take over for the easy install. Finally the garage door!! We purchased this door online for a 25% total tax and delivery savings. The local garage door company and the big box stores were overpriced. So we went online and ordered. They shipped the 7 1/2 foot by 16 foot custom insulated door directly to the job site. it took less than 3 weeks and arrived with easy to understand instructions. We saved 25% plus we installed it ourselves for additional savings. We were so pleased we produced a detailed instructional video to show you, the viewers how easy it was.
