Default Pole barn/garage contractor Ortonville

Planning on having a Pole Barn/Garage built this year. Looking at around 40X60 14-16 ft walls.

I'm not stuck on what type yet (stick, conventional, pole, etc.) but I'm leaning toward pole with steel siding and roof. Hoist and Loft to go in down the road. What type of heat is still up in the air, possible floor heat if I plan around the Hoist.

Anyone have recommendations on a contractor/builder locally? I'd need the concrete and building done. Electrical and the rest can be done at a later date.

As far as builders go, I can't recommend a good one; only do not use Pioneer Builders. For the floor, let me know when you're doing it; I can give you a decent price on it.

What kinds of doors? I've been debating roll up or normal garage style. Maybe one of each. One will be tall/narrow, the other 16-18 ft. wide but probably only 7-8 ft tall.

Chelsea Lumber has kickass kits and has pre-built prices with numerous builders they use. I've heard nothing but good things about them and I imagine they probably come out your way.

IIRC, TopTruk had his built by Bob's Barns using a kit from Chelsea Lumber and is pretty happy with it.

we are going to be doing the same thing here in the next couple months.

I think for a 40x60 we were looking at 14k ish, and 18-20k installed if I remember right.

that was chelsea lumber. we are in the chelsea area.

Chelsea steel on steel.40 x60x14 great to dealwith.but theyer contractor was a ass hole .so would recommend for material only. In floor heat is the only way.doesnot. Matter what fuel u use.(I can help with the heat setup). Do your homework on your floor layouy(drains,urnel,water line,gas,elec,ect ***(hoist)..)it was a pain in the---laying out floor,hardest part of build,but when done would not have changed a thing,other than havering done it years ago,,,good luck pm if u want more info

I used orchard construction, they are in Armada, my barn is in Oxford. Very happy, did a nice job. Search in the pub for barn threads, there are pictures. Not the cheapest, but good work and I have some upgrades...

Concrete will add probably something like $7000-$10000+ on top of your building with that size, depending on what you do.

Good builders are often booked for several months in advance, be prepared for that and call early.

Garage doors. I can get you a good deal on the sectional. I'll have to see on the roll up, if its like a storage unit type anyway, as we don't do to many of those. The roll UPS we install are the commercial rolling steel and would be little overkill/expensive for the average barn, but I can get em.
