Before Getting Started
This Helpful Hints Guide has been developed to help you construct your post frame
building and makes no representation or guarantee that you will be able to successfully
complete your building. 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

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: Mini-Prints, Code Exempt Prints, and
Engineered Prints. 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 panels and trim in a dry
area out of the sun. See handling instructions on page 36 for more information.

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.

Laminated Columns; A Stronger Choice

Rivet clinched Laminated Columns are an option to solid treated posts. Rivet clinched
Laminated Columns provide advantages over solid posts: More versatile - up to 60' or more in
length; Engineered straight with hydraulic pressure, then rivet clinched for superior holding power;
Reinforced joints with 20 gauge steel plates; Multiple lumber grades - custom built with treated
6 lumber at the base; Safer with pre-built notch - no chain saw on ladder needed.

1. Important! Check opening size prior to assembling. If vertical members need to be shortened,
it must be done at this time. Verticals may be shortened to almost any desired length.
2. Select level assembly area with clearance to turn door and lay out members.
3. Align the vertical tabs with the lateral member cutouts keeping
the open channel of door laterals towards bottom of door.
4. With laterals and verticals in place, bend tabs loosely.
5. After assembling loosely, bend tabs to tight position, working
from center lateral toward top and bottom of door.

All materials should be used as soon as possible
Steel bundles should be stored indoors with enough of a slope to allow
any moisture from condensation to drain out of the bundle
Bare galvanized panels should be installed immediately and not be stored outside
Condensation or rain water trapped on bare galvanized panels can form a wet
storage stain, also known as white rust.

Handling
Do not slide steel panels across each other.
To properly lift a panel from the bundle place hands underneath the
under lap side of the panel and lift up and away from the bundle.
Lifting steel onto roof or building grab the panel

Bending steel is best done with a hand seamer
or a brake press.

panels use 1" fasteners on both sides of each rib, for the
length of the building.

Note: Do not put fasteners on the rib at the top and bottom
of the panel. Doing this may crush the end of the panel.

Hanging Endwall Steel


Endwall panels are fastened in the same
manner as the sidewall panels. The only
difference is the gable sheets are always
started from the middle of the building
and run towards the corners. The panels
should be measured and the gable angle Start
cut off of the top before installing the

Corner and Gable Trim


Corner trim: Level the face of the trim with one side holding it up tight to the roof steel.
Fasten into place when level.

Gable trim: When applying the gable trim, make sure the top side of the trim is in line with the
roof and the side of the gable trim is in line with the end wall.

Fasten the top part to every purlin and the bottom part to the ribs on the end wall steel.
