That always was a question in my mind about these style buildings. But as long as you have enough drainage it makes sense. Same reason you dont cement wooden fence posts.

I wonder if you were to coat them in tar or something if it would prolong the life any?

maybe. if it is a concern you can either pour piers or use pre cast concrete.

The concern about the posts rotting out strikes me funny. They have been building pole barns in this manner for well over 75 years and the technics and materials have changed very little over that time. With modern pressure treated lumber I would expect far more life than the warranty offered by the pole barn manufacturer.

As a point of reference my fathers very good friend is a farmer and had a pole barn built when I was very young, the building is 100% fine to this day. I was in fact in the building recently and other than the utter disregard to any sort of organization in that space (typical farmer stuff is everywhere in there) I would see no reason to even think about changing anything structurally. The building still looked perfect and was rain and weather tight, it pouring when I was there and the wind was howling and it was very nice in there. I was fixing a piece of equipment that's why I was in there as an FYI.


Love your space axle.
