I live in Ca. and am not concerned about freezing temps, with nthat said: i erected a metal bldg 46'lx14'wx16'h at the peak. H at the cross members is 14'. Unit is on gravel. Siding is 12 gauge aluminum. Allegedly will withstand winds of 100 mph. The cost was$7,500 delivered and erected (included was $200 for fabricating barn style doors 7'w open all the way to the roof line) as I had orderd a 4 sided bldg with extra cross members and metal studs for that purpose. I am currently on the road and do not have photos. If you are interested I can send you a PM in about 10 days with contact info and photos

Sorry hit the wrong button..For my application, I'm in a RV storage facility and needed it to be temporary, The I had them use 8 21/2 ' anchors that twist into the ground. A machine is used to turn the anchor. In addition the installers drive a 2' rod into the ground evvery 4'. If you have property that you own the anchors can be embedded in cement or you could actually build a foundation with bolts every 4'.

One of the smartest things I've done in the last two years was build a RV/shop/office/apartment building.
This is what we got for 125K

We used to have a 30'x40' pole barn when we lived in northern IL. I had a big 14' high sliding door for the MH and a reg. garage door for my pick up and tracktor. I had a wood roof on our ploe barn. No condensation drip from roof inside. Can not remember what it cost back than. But it was the cheapest way to go.

JB looks like a great set up and your property looks great. The building I'am looking into is similar but on a smaller scale. What size overhead is that in it.
