Easier to finish inside and insulate, Cheaper, and I like the looks over the all steel. The roof and sides will be steel.

I never felt the need for a big fancy house. I only eat and sleep in the house. I spend 8-14 hrs a day in my shop. Cant wait for it to be finished though.

Don't think I'm poking fun at ya, my original concept when I was just out of college was a 50' x 200' with a camper parked inside....

...Future wife wasn't down with it though....

I am going to build a shop at some point this year (same as everyone, depends on the money flow)

My question is, what are the pros and cons of doing a pole shed as opposed to the stick built way?

I like the prefabbed steel ones myself. Everything comes pre-drilled, all hardware is included, and a set of dwgs. Just start throwing it up.

I like your new wood one too.
