It is important that questions be asked before you get too far into construction. Study this manual carefully before starting construction. You can use it as a guide and refer to it during construction. Have you talked to your local building inspector? We suggest you check with your local building official regarding site location, permit procedures, safety regulations and specifications of the materials used to construct your new building. PLEASE NOTE: This Helpful Hints Guide is intended solely to provide general knowledge as to one of the many ways that a post frame building may be constructed. Builders who utilize this guide must proceed at their own risk and are solely responsible for complying with all the building codes which pertain to their community. hereby disclaims all liability for any damages whether consequential, incidental, special or otherwise, which may result from following this Helpful Hints Guide. has many prints available to the builder to better aid them in the construction of the post frame building. (Custom Mini-Prints, Residential Post Frame Blueprints, and Commercial Blueprints. See your store for details.) Before the building is delivered make sure that your site is clear. Prepare the site so it is level 6' beyond the building on all sides. Remember to make sure there is enough room for the delivery truck to move around on your site. The bigger the building, the bigger the truck delivering the building will be. Warning: If metal is not being used immediately, store roofing and siding panels in a dry area out of the sun. See handling instructions on page 33 for more information. Tip: If you plan to have a concrete floor now or at a later date please make sure the material list has been adjusted properly to accommodate this feature. By putting in a concrete floor into your building you may lose the thickness of the floor from your total interior height. Check for proper turning radius and clearance for overhead doors. Items recommended for the construction of your post frame building: • Mason line • Tape Measure • Framing Square • Chalk Line • Metal Snips • Chain Saw • Drill • • • • • • • Post Frame Building Hammer Hand Saw Level Nail Apron Pencil Circular Saw Custom Mini-Print All of the above items can be purchased at your local PAGE 4 store. Traditional Post Frame Construction String Line Building Dimensions • Locate and stake corners of the building. Grade should be level and free of obstructions. • Drive three stakes into the ground spaced about 6' apart and approximately 4' behind each building corner stake. • Nail batter boards to the outside of the stakes, approximately 12" above the grade. • Starting at corner #1, stretch a mason line directly over the top of the corner stakes for one • side of the building. Finish stretching the mason line between the remaining corners to form • the outline of the building. Check for proper dimensions, making adjustments as needed. 6 ft 6 ft Approx. 4 ft Approx. 4 ft Batter Boards approx. 12" Stake e n Lin Maso Corner #1 Corner #2 th Leng Corner #4 Wi dth Corner #3 Call your local digger's hotline to check for underground lines before digging. Square the Building • Measure 6' from any corner along the sideline and make a mark. Measure 8' from the same corner along the end line and make a mark. The diagonal distance between the marks should be exactly 10'. If not, adjust a line at the corner to fit. Repeat this process at the next two corners. • To square mason lines, measure diagonally. To be squared, their measurements need to be the same. Adjust as necessary. Make sure your sidewall and end wall dimensions 6’ are correct. 10’ Diagonal A = Diagonal B lA na o g Dia 8’ Diagonal B PAGE 5 Set and Plumb Corner Posts Dig holes at least 4 feet deep, any less will compromise your wind loads and frost level. Dig the corner holes first. Tamp the bottom of the hole to avoid settling. Place a concrete pad in the bottom of each hole. Secure treated anchor blocks ¹⁄8" from the bottom of each post with 4" nails on each side of the post. Repeat for all posts. These anchor blocks increase the building's wind uplift rating. Post Note: If treated anchor blocks are wider than the post, use the following pattern. Anchor Blocks Place a concrete pad and post into each corner hole. See your mini-print for the correct post length. Stand the corner post vertically in the hole so the longer width sets perpendicular to the wall and the shorter width runs parallel to the wall. I.E. for 4x6 post, the 4" dimension runs parallel and the 6" dimension runs perpendicular. For buildings with bookshelf girts refer to page 24. Fit the sides of the post into the corner of mason line layout, allowing room (1½") for girts between the mason line and the post for both the sidewall and end wall. The outside of the girts is the final dimension measurements for the building. Keep checking to make sure the post is plumb and in line with the mason line. Nail a temporary 2"x4" brace on the inside of the corner post near the top extending to stakes in the ground. Bracing should be applied in both the sidewall and end wall directions. - Fill the hole with dirt and tamp solid. - Repeat this with all corner posts.

Measure to your particular spacing along mason line, stick a nail in the ground directly under the mason line. Continue down the sidewall in the same fashion. At each nail location, dig a hole on the inside of the string for the sidewall posts. Sidewall Post Jamb Posts (Door Posts) Note: For overhead doors the door width is measured from inside of post to inside of post. For sliding doors the door width is measured from center of post to center of post. Measure to your particular spacing from the temporary 2"x4" block on the corner post to the closest edge of the first sidewall post. Set in pads and posts. Allow room for girts between the mason line and post. Make sure the post remains plumb. Fill hole with dirt and tamp solid. Measure to your particular spacing from far edge of the second post to the closest edge of the next post. Set in pad and post. Allow 1½" between the mason line and post. Make sure the post remains plumb. Fill hole with dirt and tamp solid. Continue down the rest of the sidewall. Repeat procedure starting from the same endwall, on the opposite side. In order for stability and safety in the construction process, posts on end walls should be set an equal distance apart and are not to exceed 10' on center.

See page 39 for details. Rest the spacer blocks on top of the grade board, temporarily tack the blocks into place. Bay Tip: Keep posts plumb while installing girts. Remove the spacer block above the grade board and place spacer blocks on top of the first row of girts, and nail second row of girts into place on both sidewalls and end walls. Repeat. Special Note: If you have a sidewall overhang: The overhang soffit nailer is not installed at the same time as the girts and should be installed when the overhangs are being framed. See page 28. Allow room for jamb material when placing girts on a jamb post. See door framing details page 16-17.

Measure from the bottom of the grade board up each post to the height of your wall, put a mark. Header Depth Building Height Measure from the previous mark down the post, the depth of the header and place another mark. This will be your header bearing location. See pages 16-17 for Sliding door header information. Notch jamb posts for headers greater than 2-ply. Install stub posts between plys at each truss to ply location. Stub Post Tip: Dimensional lumber is 1½" thick. Optional LVL headers are 1¾" thick, adjust header notches as needed. Header Ply 2-Ply Header 4-Ply Header 3-Ply Header Stub Post Header You may need more or less material depending on how you put together your building. PAGE 11 Truss Location Measuring from the bottom of the grade board up each post, the height of your wall, put a mark. This is where your truss bearing will be located. For example: If your wall height is 10' tall, the measurement from the bottom of your grade board to the bottom of the truss would be 10' (120"). Warning: If you are planning to have a concrete floor now or in the future make sure the material list has been adjusted properly for this particular feature. To maintain the interior clearance from the top of the finished floor to the bottom chord of the truss, the thickness of the slab will have to be added on to the height of the building. Mark for Truss Bearing Sidewall Height Bottom of Grade Board Post Notch Warning: Do not notch corner posts or end wall posts. 11⁄2" Solid Posts Double check your measurements from bottom of grade board to the bottom of truss notch. It should be the same as the sidewall height. Use a square to mark post for notching. Trusses will sit in notch and may not extend more than 1½" from beyond post. Laminated Columns The truss will sit in the saddle of the laminated column. The bearing block will need to be cut to the proper length and secured to column to bring the truss bearing height equal to the building's wall height. Saddle Truss to Post connection Bearing Block - Field Cut to Proper Length PAGE 12 Truss Bearing Block Secured to column with 2 Rows of 30d (4½" ring shank) nails 3" O.C. (Each Side) raising Trusses Before raising trusses, mark the top edge of the truss for the proper purlin spacing, starting at the peak of the truss and move towards the eave. The bottom edge of the peak purlin should start no more than 8" from the peak. Note: Purlins will not exceed 24" o.c. for agricultural buildings. For residential and/or commercial buildings please refer to Engineered Prints. raising the End Frames At one end of the building, raise an end frame on the outside of the end wall posts. The bottom edge of the truss 24" must align with the Eave 24" building height you marked on the post. The heel of the end frame should extend 1½" past the outside edge of the post. Nail the end frame to the corner post first, checking to be sure the corner post and endwall posts are plumb. Finish nailing the end frame to the endwall posts at each frame to post location. 24" 24" No more than 8" Peak 11⁄2" End Frame Use 30d (4½" ring shank) nails to attach end frame to posts. Building Height Note: Endwall posts shall be cut off just above top chord. Endwall Laminated columns are 3' nail free at the top for ease of cutting and shall be nailed together at jobsite after cut has been made. raising the main trusses Truss to bear directly on top of the notch of the post. Fasten starter purlins at approximately 8' apart using 60d (6" ring shank) nails to hold them in place. Starter purlins can be premarked for proper spacing. Use 30d (4½" ring shank) nails to attach trusses to posts. End Frame Truss Starter Purlin Hang truss past post 11⁄2" Truss bearing marker PAGE 13 roof Purlins Peak Purlins Butted together Using 60d (6" ring shank) nails attach purlins to trusses. For buildings with an end wall overhang consult the endwall overhang details on page 28. After all the trusses are in place, nail all other purlins into place where you put the marks on the top edges of the trusses. 12" 12" Inside Purlins are Overlapped Peak purlins and edge purlins should be butted together, all the other roof purlins should be overlapped at the trusses. For buildings with a sidewall overhang, do not install the edge purlin, and refer to sidewall overhang details on page 28. Edge Purlin Edge purlins can be nailed to the sidewall posts and must be in line with roof purlins. Applying Braces knee Braces After all trusses are raised and purlins are in place, use a mason line to see if both sidewalls are straight and plumb. After the wall is straight, secure 2x6 knee braces to posts using 30d (4½" ring shank) nails and the knee brace to truss using 10d (3" ring shank) nails. Note: Buildings with laminated columns, using a center notch, require 2 ply 2x6 knee braces.

PAGE 25 Bookshelf Truss Placement Truss Location Measuring from the bottom of the grade board up each post, the height of your wall, put a mark. This is where your truss bearing will be located. For example: If your wall height is 10' tall, the measurement from the bottom of your grade board to the bottom of the truss would be 10' (120"). Warning: If you are planning to have a concrete floor now or in the future make sure the material list has been adjusted properly for this particular feature. To maintain the interior clearance from the top of the finished floor to the bottom chord of the truss, the thickness of the slab will have to be added on to the height of the building. Post Notch Field cut exterior plies of laminated column 3" above top of truss. This will allow nailing area for edge purlin or overhang jack. Field cut bearing block to proper length for truss bearing. 3 - ply 2x6 laminated column Truss Truss placed into column Insert bearing block into column and secure 1 side with (2) 10d nails staggered @ 3" O.C. each side. Warning: Do not notch corner posts or endwall posts. Solid Posts Double check your measurements from bottom of grade board to the bottom of truss notch. It should be the same as the sidewall height. Use a square to mark post for notching. Trusses will sit in notch and may not extend beyond post. Laminated Columns The truss will sit in the saddle of the laminated column. The bearing block will need to be cut to the proper length and secured to column to bring the truss bearing height equal to the buildings wall height.

Cutting Steel Cutting steel is best done with a panel shear, tin snips, nibblers, or electric shears. Bending Steel Bending steel is best done with a hand seamer or a brake press. PAGE 34 Hanging Sidewall Steel Note: Optional Bottom Trim May be installed at this time. Note: Positioning of the first panel is critical. The first panel installed establishes the alignment and layout of the entire wall. It is very important that the first panel is accurately positioned and squared before fastening it in place. Tip: When laying out the steel panel have the overlap side of the panel away from the main line of sight. Tip: You may want to start at a corner away from the prevailing wind. Steel Panel Cut the first rib off leaving ¼" of rib on the first sheet of side steel (Fig. 1). Position the first panel so it is square in the corner. Make sure the first sheet of sidewall steel is level and the top of the sheet is even with the top edge of the edge purlin. This should leave approximately 3" of grade board exposed at the bottom (Fig.2). Using 1½" washer nails or 1" screws, secure the top and bottom of the steel panel at the lap next to the rib, to assure proper lap and seating of the steel panel. Securing the panel in this manner will assure all laps to be seated and will not allow the steel to grow or stretch as you are running it. Once all the panels are in place and secure only at the lap, snap a chalk line at each mid-girt location and finish fastening the wall with 2" neoprene washer nails or 2" screws on top of the rib. At the top and bottom of the panels use 1½" fasteners on both sides of each rib, for the length of the building.

PAGE 43 Horse Stalls Lumber requirements The first step in building your stall is to decide on your finished dimensions, which determines the lengths of lumber required. The following specifications cover the lumber requirements for each wall model. Lumber listed is for 12' wide walls. Should your needs be different, just change the lumber lengths accordingly. Treated lumber is recommended if using 2x6x12'. Lumber from front wall can be used for door bottom rather than plywood. Front Wall with Grillwork and Door: • 1 pc. ¾" x 48" x 96" plywood (smooth 1 side) - for bottom half of sliding door. • 1 pc. 2x6 x 48" door header board • 9 pcs. 2x6 x 96" wall boards • 1 pc. 2x12 x 144" track board • 2 pcs. 2x2 x 36" door channel filler Front Wall System Door dimensions are 48" wide, 86" high. Overhead clearance must be at least 94½" to accommodate the door, trolley, and track. System comes complete with the following: Grillwork sections: 10' front includes 1 - 24" & 1 - 48" 12' front includes 2 - 48" • 2 End channels • 4 Header channels • 1 Wall Brace Assembly Screws Side Wall System System comes complete with the following: Grillwork sections: 10' sidewall includes 2 - 48" & 1 - 24" 12' sidewall includes 3 - 48" • 2 End channels • 2 Header channels • 1 Wall Brace Assembly Screws Partition or rear Wall System System comes complete with the following: • 4 End channels • 2 Wall Brace Assembly Screws PAGE 44 Solid Front Wall with Door: • 1 pc. ¾" x 48" x 96" plywood (smooth 1 side) - for bottom half of sliding door. • 1 pc. 2x6 x 48" door header board • 9 pcs. 2x6 x 96" wall boards • 1 pc. 2x12 x 144" track board • 2 pcs. 2x2 x 36" door channel filler • 11 pcs. 2x6 x 144" wall boards Solid Side Wall: • 17 pcs. 2x6 x 144" wall boards Typical corner posts are standard 4x4 lumber. Five (5) posts are required for the first stall and three (3) additional posts for each stall thereafter, when constructed side-by-side. Note: All 4x4 posts should be 8' in length above the ground. Longer posts are required if they are to be anchored in the ground. Horse Stalls Assembly Instructions Post Installation After making your lumber list, the next step is to layout the stall. Install all corner posts with 8' of length above ground and lateral dimensions at 10' or 12' on centers, depending on the width of the walls you've selected. Be sure they're all plumb, level and true. Next, install the center door post wall with a 4' dimension (on centers) from the corner post on the side that you want the door (see Stall Arrangement drawing). Take note of the 1½" offset of the center post, which is necessary so that the sliding door can open past the post. The front wall and center post must all be flush. With all posts in place, you are now ready to install the walls you've selected. Unpack each carton as you're ready for installation and account for all parts on the packing list. Review the assembly drawings to familiarize yourself with parts placement and read all instructions carefully.

Hold the gutter firmly against the fascia. Be sure to allow a slight slope in the gutter to allow for proper water drainage. Install hex head screw on the hidden fastener into the fascia board. 24" Hidden Gutter Hangers at 24" on Center To properly lap 2 pieces of gutter, make a relief cut on the gutter lap. Be sure this relief cut is on the upstream portion of the gutter. Apply a bead of silicone between the overlapped gutter portions. This will prevent the seam from leaking. Finally, apply two pop rivets in the designated locations. PAGE 46 Placement of Pop Rivets Silicone Placement Relief Cut 6" Minimum Gutter Installation Pop Rivets or Screws Downspout Outlet Rain Gutter Determine your downspout locations. Mark and cut outlet hole for downspouts outlet. Apply silicone to the bottom side of the downspout outlet. Place the outlet from the top side of the gutter. Using four pop-rivets rivet the downspout outlet to the gutter. It is also possible to install the downspout outlet before attaching your gutter to the fascia board. To attach the downspout to the outlet, slide the downspout over the bottom of the outlet. Rivet the downspout to the outlet using four rivets. Downspout Rain Gutter Apply silicone sealant on the interior channel of the end cap To install the end cap to the gutter apply a generous bead of silicone sealant. The cap will slide onto the end of the gutter. Downspout Rain Gutter It is also possible to install End Caps before attaching your gutter to the Fascia Board. End Cap PAGE 47 LAMINATED COLUMNS Laminated columns are used as vertical supports in post frames construction, and can be fabricated to any length to meet your individual building specifications. The dimension of the lumber and the number of plies are determined by the buildingʼs design requirements. TRUSS Laminated columns are produced using an automated nailing machine. The machine aligns the component members with its powerful clamping system, removing normal warpage and pressing members firmly together. The machine then automatically drives the nail through and rivet clinches both ends. BEARING BLOCK (CUT TO FIT) In addition to the rivet clinched nails, heavy gauge steel plates are inserted between the column members at the joints of the treated and untreated material. LAMINATED COLUMN THREADLOCK NAILS HEAVY GAUGE STEEL PLATES INSERTED BETWEEN COLUMN MEMBERS AT THE JOINTS. STAINLESS STEEL NAILS TREATED LUMBER Treated lumber and stainless steel nails are used in the lower portion of the column that goes into the ground to resist corrosion and rot. Threadlock nails formed from helically fluted low carbon steel wire are used in the upper portion for superior holding strength. Sidewall laminated columns are designed so the truss fits down in the notch providing a strong junction between truss and laminated column. In some cases, this junction is strong enough to eliminate the need for knee braces. The truss to laminated column fastening is determined by the buildingʼs design requirements. 4½" 8 GAUGE RIVET CLINCHED NAILS Rivet clinched threadlock nails are accepted by: • FHA-Federal Housing Administration • ICBO-International Conference of Building Officials • BOCA-Building Officials Conferences of America • CMHC-Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. 1¼" SOFFIT NAILS • A 1# box will cover 150 feet or 112 pieces of soffit 1# Box – Specify color 156-4396 E-Z SEAL POLE BARN NAILS Approx.
