First off let me say I could not find any information or suggestions on having a pole building built in Livingston county. Of course each manufacture had their own advertising and info but nothing that was impartial. I had some other contractors quote my building. Some contractors never got back to me or would get back but it was like I was bugging them asking for a quote. Chelsea Lumber requires you to take a trip to their lumber yard and talk to someone as the sales desk. They will list your requirements and your email address. This information now goes to an estimator, my estimator was Darrell Williams. You will be emailed a quote about two weeks later. Take another trip to Chelsea to meet and finalize your particulars. Like door placement, window size, color, etc. At this time you make a sizable down payment, get a start date and are assigned a builder. My builder was Jim Bauer. The plot where the barn will be built will have to be excavated and that is the homeowners responsibility. Chelsea requires a 4" sand base. My build location had a steep grade so extensive excavating had to be done along with bringing in hundreds of yds. of stone to be compacted. I did the excavating myself to save on cost and also I have the equipment. Once the build crew shows up and starts boring holes it moves very fast, I think my build foreman was Todd. Hole depth had to be inspected and approved, then poles were left to set for a weekend. When the crew started that next week the rest of the building material also showed up. At this time you will have to pay off the remainder of build and labor cost. After that they were at my build every week day for 2-3 weeks until it was done. They do require, like all others a bin or container for refuse and scrapes. I just picked up after them every other day and threw it in the burn pile. The roofers and garage door installers work for Chelsea Lumber and are sub contractors, also very nice job. Livingston County requires a final building inspection and a compaction inspection if your going to have a concrete floor. I filled and compacted all the fill (stone) myself and had both inspections done at once. I am happy with my pole building, I have since sectioned off space for rooms and I'm surprised how accurate all their dimensions are with the posts. At one time Chelsea did offer a concrete option, but does not anymore. We did the 50 yrds. of concrete and rebar ourselves. One other note when Jim was picking up his equipment at the end of the build. There was left over materials like osb, fasteners, redi-mix, etc. Jim asked me if I wanted these left over items, I told him no so he took them back to Chelsea. The next day Darrell called me and returned almost $800 to my credit card for the materiel Jim took back. The cost listed is for 40'x60' no concrete floor. Not to many options, I went with a insulated 10'x10' bay door, shingled roof, 12" overhang on all four sides and scissor trusses. The scissor trusses give me an extra 43" of ceiling height for two second story lofts I installed. I think total for concrete, rebar, rebar chairs, wire, forms, renting cement buggies. Concrete ran $9000, 6"-7" thk.
