Default My New Garage Build

Hey Guys,
Here's my new shop build. I'm using the fittings from Socket Systems and building a "monitor" style barn (also known as a "raised center aisle"). It'll be 30X40 with 10' side walls and a total height of 24'.
My drawings are done in Sketch-up and I can't get the damn things to post.
Here's a few photo's of the work done so far.
Mike

You won't be able to post the skp files directly. You'll have to export to a jpg (under the file menu) and then post that.

Robin,
I'm actually a bit further along but I didn't want to post more photo's at a time than that.
I'll try to post a few more tonight.
I've received all of the fittings from Socket systems and should finish painting them tonight. I've scheduled a shop raising for the 21st of July and I'm hoping to have all of the frames up that day. My timbers and framing lumber will be delivered Thursday and I'll have time to do some pre-cutting before the build day.

I've always liked the style of monitor buildings, looking forward to seeing more.

Here's a few more photos. This time of the concrete work and one of the Socket System base plates. Also a shot of the first two pallets of fittings from Socket sys, I think it was 1400 lbs. I finished painting all of the fittings tonight; they're now silver hammer tone.

I assume that you are painting them with some sort of anit-rust stuff?. Are you using PT or did you get some lumber milled?.
My barn is going in just up the road from you in Murphy. I have the land cleared and I want to get started next trip up.

Robin,
I'm using non-pt'd #1 6x6, the lumberyard is getting them from the treating company but before they are treated. I priced them from a couple of sawmills and the price was about the same; But . . . . the ones from the sawmill weren't kiln-dried nor were they the nominal 6x6 size which means a lot more work for me cutting them down to fit in the sockets.

Robin,
No problem regarding the info. I'll have more photos after this weekend.
If you want to check out the building on the way to Murphy sometime let me know.

All of the timbers, framing lumber, & OSB was delivered yesterday. Today I cut all of the haunch braces and began cutting the timbers to length; that should take the weekend.

Here are a few more photo's of the shop build.
The first photo is the sub-assembly of the upper roof and the next are the drill jig for the haunch braces.
So far I'm pretty pleased with the Socket Systems products.
Mike

These should have come before the ones in my previous post.
The first is my version of work smart not hard. The 14" x 21 ft LVL beams were on top of lumber stacks. So I used my car dollies to move them. The other is the 18' scissors lift I bought, I'll sell it when the shop is finished.

OK, I need to get this thread back on track. I'm way behind on posting the photos and giving a little commentary.
These 3 photos are of the first frame going up. I had 10 or 11 friends over a few weeks ago and we spent a day assembling and raising all of the frames. I had cut all of the timbers beforehand.
