Finally Built a Pole Barn

I haven't been on ClassicOlds as much as I used to. The car is done and I really haven't done much to upgrade it but I finally pulled the trigger on a new pole barn. We have a one car garage that I get in the summer and my wife gets in the winter. I'd been storing the car at a local warehouse during the winter months but I couldn't work on it. We live on a very sloping lot that required cutting into the side of a hill to make a level pad for the barn. Before anyone chimes in with "you should have made it twice as large", I made it as large as I possibly could given the site constraints. I did the site work late in the summer of 2017 and began construction this past August. It's 28x36 with a 12x36 upstairs storage area. I work in the demolition business so I've acquired some materials over the last couple years that the typical pole barn might not get. (Eleven windows and two 9'x6-6" garage doors). It also has an entrance door and a 10x10 garage door that I purchased with the package. I picked up a 9000 lb Rotary Lift that I installed this weekend. Still no power yet. I'll get that installed in the next few weeks.

The concrete slab was placed about two weeks ago so I can finally start moving in:

Looks like you have made a lot of progress... There is nothing like having your own shop / work / storage space in your backyard...

Thanks John, I have an 87 Mustang convertible that was my Dad's that I'm bringing home in the next few weeks. Nothing really special about it but it was my dad's. My plan is to get it on the road for my daughter who will turn 16 next year.

The Wife and I are building a new house along with a separate 36 x 24 climate controlled garage for the Vintage cars we have, the building was designed around the cars. My Wife tells me I am Crazy, but she loves driving them.

Not a kit. I designed the layout and got three prices from local Mennonite and Amish builders. This is the plan that I did. I changed the windows and doors a little to satisfy code requirements but this is pretty much what got built.

I'm thinking about using traditional fiberglass insulation with sheetrock on the ceiling and not sure about the walls yet.

This is probably the cheapest way to go but I doubt the R value is as good as fiberglass:

Very nice ! Put in lots of electrical outlets and don't skimp on electrical power. Think about camera's for security, they are easy to add now. Spray foam insulation is expensive, but the R value is about 7 per inch. The rigid foam also adds some strength and seals against air and water leaks. 4 or 6 mil plastic and sheet rock to finish walls. Add air lines around the perimeter. Wire ceiling lights in strips or sections for where you will be working.
.......Just my two cents worth

I was considering and did purchase enough sheetrock to do my 4000 SF ceiling in my shop, but now I am reconsidering using metal instead and insulation will be 6 inch rolled fiberglass bats... Fortunately, each roll will cover the 40 FT width span which is very convenient...

Congratulations Mike!
I love it.\\If you look into the spray foam insulation, costs here in MI are around $1/sq.ft. Thats with you prepping & blocking/masking off etc. The cost versus the savings with its R value + the tightness of installation (no air leaks) is worth it.INMHO
