    After months of changing ideas and spots, sizes, contractors, etc...we are finally making headway on a new 35x56 pole building. It's about as big as I can go, financially and per county code for the size of my property. Trees are being cleared this week, and then another guy is coming in to build up a level pad for it. Looks to be about 500 ton of screenings to get it built up, since it sits on a slight grade toward the back. The extra $ for tree removal and pad kind of kicked my butt...but it has to be done. So here we are currently...

    First pic is of the spot before tree demo. Second and third are the last two days.

    Adam, I’ve had 300 tons trucked out already and still have more to get rid of after they built my 40x50. It was originally sized at 64x40 but I also had to cut back due to costs.

    Looks awesome, lots of work ahead but will be worth it.

    When I did my 30 ' 40' addition on the back of the shop it was a 3 year project. First year to get it cleared. Paid a guy with a loader to push over the trees and get the root ball out of the ground then I cut up the brush and burned / hauled it to the back of the property. Next year saved and had the fill brought in. 9 trucks full and then I was still short so the operator dug a big hole to get the rest. Next year was the pad and then I built the structure out of scrap steel I had been collecting all along.
