http://www.buildyourown.ws/wood-truss-pole-building.html This is part one of a 13 part series of pole building construction videos. Nothing fancy here. Just simple proven methods of barn installation construction using basic tools. In this section we layout the post locations using string line and batter boards and square it up using old fashion cross hatching for this 30X40X10 barn layout. Ultimately in order for the building to be square, the diagonal measurements from corner to corner must be the same length.
