Wow, looks very nice! That is a great size as well, are you going to do much finish work on the interior? You also gotta tell us what you are going to do in it.
I did a 24 x 30 years ago with a couple of helpers, now days I just don't have the time or the will to do much more than car projects.

Good work there.
That is an ideal size.
I have a 40 x 40 area in my shop for working on cars.

I thought I was looking at my shop. I have a 30x62 that looks almost like yours. When I had a business in Hattiesburg,I looked at those trusses in Collins. I put up osb on the walls as you did, but mine is insulated. I also built shelves just like you did.
I had a company build mine. I was going to do it, but after I priced all the materials, they put it up for $1000 more and I did not have to touch it. It would have taken me a couple of months to do it and they did it in a week. I was 105* that summer too. It has pretty much the same trusses that you have.
Where are you located?

I am up in the Delta now.
I put heat and air in mine and love it. I would like to put some more insulation in mine to cut the power bill and cut the cool down and warm up time.

Good job, I live in Picayune and want to do one in 2012, glad to see some "locals".
Priced "farm barns" out of Hattiesburg and also found a co in Ark that will do a 30x40x10 for $12,900.00, 30x50x10 for $15,700.00 which includes cement, insulation, all metal work doors and windows. W/the price of cement those seem like good deals but I like how you did your posts above the cement and not in the ground, concerned about termites. Should I be?

We are building a 40 x 80 barn with used chicken trusses but ours have a 5' leg (2" x 6" channel) that are on the outside edges of the trusses. Our biggest obstacle is how to get the trusses up to the 16' height to set on top of the 6 x 6 posts. How did you do it? Did you use a lift? A bunch of friends? :) Your shop looks great! We are getting ready to start...

Nice shop, Aubrey. My family (father's side) is from Kokomo and I lived there and Hattiesburg for several years. Went to school at USM. Are you anywhere near Kokomo (halfway bewixt Columbia and Tylertown)?

Hi I am new to this group. I am currently building a 40x40 also in central MS. Your pics helped out alot. Thanks for posting these. If you don't mind me asking, how many pieces of tin did it take to do your building on the outside?
