Generally the posts will go 3’ in the ground. However, additional depth may be required depending upon the structure and post length. A general rule of thumb is that 20% of the total post height should be below the ground. Additionally, these posts should be in a hole with an 18” diameter.
If you don’t want to leave the trusses exposed, and want more of a finished look, you can frame them in so they are concealed beneath sheetrock.
We recommend that our customers do a minimum of a 6” slab. However, you can always make your slab thicker for added strength.

When installing the paneling on your barndominium or metal building, you should always install the roof panels before installing the wall panels.
