All of the foam, wire mesh, and 5 mil black plastic is in.

The concrete is scheduled to be poured on Thursday.

Awesome! Do you keep it wet for a few days while it cures?

Bandit- The temp here is 45, so the concrete cures slowly. No need to cover it.

350 Vortec- I have seen it done both ways . I did the plastic on top to hold the foam down so it did not blow away.

I was able to install the overhead beam that will carry the roof load over the new flame table space.

I am also planning a jib crane on the top of the columns.

Is there a reason timber is used vs steel? Here all similar buildings are steel.

Looks massive!

One more side down.

Bru21--

The reason this one is wood is cost.

We had a large tobacco barn when we bought the farm. A few years later, a tornado destroyed it.

The insurance would only pay to replace the same style. Since they were paying, I did not care.
Now thing have changed. If I had to do it over, it would have been steel.

Since the new shop is attached to the old shop, it did not make sense to overbuild it by going metal.

And then there were three!

Three sides done. Now the roof. Bad weather Monday and Tuesday. It might have to wait a day or two.

Got half of the roof on. Hopefully no wind tomorrow and the rest of the roof will go on.

Why not use a WRM - weather resistant membrane? Tyvak or Typar or equivalent. I do that to prevent moisture condensation soaking fiberglass insulation. Or are you spray foaming? Or you don't have the humidity to worry about it?

I am going to use closed cell spray foam. I am going to do the roof first, then the sides.
