Sounds like a fair price to me. So what's with the pole barn -- got an RV to park underneath it?

Hi

Park the boats.

Also I was thinking of enclosing part of one end and making a work shop/storage.

Hey Harry,

Sounds like a real good deal to me....I paid 900.00 for a 2 car aluminum carport.

Sounds about right to me, but you can always do more shopping if you don't feel quite right about it. Greg

Hi Harry,

Sounds like a good deal to me. Just the engineered, pre-measured approved plan is worth quite a bit.

Question - Do these have the 2 major pole barn trusses and 2 gable ends, with the purlins going lengthways? If so, are the trusses bolted through the posts? And do they tell you how to lift them up to where they need to be?

Hi JD

I don't know. I think I'll call them and see if I can get ahold of the instructions/plans.
