    Yes, and in Michigan at least, a post frame construction building is considered to have a wood foundation in the code book.

    All of the posts and framing got delivered this morning. Debating on if I want to pick up the bobcat and get the holes dug today or tomorrow. My wife leaves early Monday morning and will be gone all week for work, so I won't be able to do much in the evenings with the kids, and there is a chance for light rain everyday next week. But if I get the holes in and the concrete poured, I can set posts even if it is lightly raining.

    I got the holes bored for the posts today, and will be pouring the concrete for the footings tomorrow morning. And finally a few pictures.

    All laid out and squared up

    I had to bust up the concrete pad in front of the shed to dig a hole

    I wish I had one for just storage, but I am going to have to use mine to work out out of.

    I got all of the footings poured today, and looks like I have a bunch of help for this weekend to get it framed.

    One of my guys got finished with his project early today, so he came over and we got the corner posts set.

    It looks like I have a decent amount of help tomorrow, so hopefully we will get a lot done.

    I am hoping to get it framed, and the trusses set by Monday, but we'll see what happens. The weather isn't going to be near as nice as they predicted earlier inthe week. Around 40* with a light rain/ snow mix. Blah.
