Yes, all projects of this size require approval from your local building and zoning department. We provide detailed plans including foundation plans with an engineers stamp for you to present to your local building and zoning department.
Site work and foundation usually take 1-2 weeks and the construction of the barn takes 3 weeks to a month to complete. Altogether about 6 weeks from breaking ground you’ll have a completed post and beam barn.
We hire a crane to come and lift the frame. This usually happens about a week into the building process after frame is cut and assembled. The crane is usually there for half a day to a full day depending on size of barn.
If you would like to you may. We have excavators and foundation masons we work with that are familiar with our process. We will bring the excavator and mason to the job site, they will provide you with an estimate and you pay them directly.
