Talking 36x56x12

I'm new to the forum. I figured I would do a thread on my build as it happens. So far, only the site prep is started.

Its been raining here in southern michigan for the last 5-6 days. So no more progress to report.

Heres a few more details on my barn
36*56*12, 4/12, pitch, storage space trusses, wainscotting, 1 ft overhangs on all sides boxed in soffits, 2 10*12 insulated overhead doors one on each gable end, 1 36 inch man door, 2 double pane windows, 4 inch concrete with mesh. 1 floor drain in middle of shop.

I believe I'm getting a screaming deal. Amish crew to build and contract is signed for 22,076. I have do do my own site prep and pull my permits. I should be able to do the whole thing for just over 24,000. I was curious what others have paid in the past for a similar build?
