I'm here in Hudson Valley/So. NY state and wondering how people run with pole barns vs. conventional construction. Any strong feelings one way or another? Building (garage) is 26' x 26' with half story above, 9/12 gable roof with wall dormer over front and shed roof dormer out back. Haven't decided about post down at center and load bearing ridge vs. collar ties and whatnot. Kids will use second floor for ping pong, etc.
