Osso, glad to have you for support.
Rocky- I hear you, maybe thats my problem (overdesigning) I know I didnt need the columns but what the hell its not ike the room is too small.
We were digging column footers today and I got about 10 oads of good clen fill from a buddy who is building a golf course about 16 miles nearer LAncaster and He called me yesterday and asked if I knew anyone who needed fill for FREE and delivered on a series of triaxles. Talk about dumb luck.
There was an old building there where the new one is going and I had it ripped down and hauled away free by the AMish who dont waste a thing. The whole damn building was recycled including the old concrete block and floor which was pulverized using a track hoe with a jackhammer on the backhoe end. Al thatw was taken by two AMish brothers who are building a road base to their new dairy barn. The old aluminum siding was sold to a scrap delaer as were the old windows. The tin roof was sent to a metal recycler for specialty metals and the woode was reused by everyone incuding some by my guy to make forms for concrete filing in the new cinder block foundation.
The reason the opld building was totalled was because its foundation was done by some amateur (it was above frost line so it was heaving and there was no way I cpould put on a second foor) That building was dangerous and could have fallen down ( I strapped angle stays around two corners of the back walls)
