Do you build a house on a rock or sand? I had a 30x40 pole barn put up 4 years ago. After the fact I learned that posts are the weak link in a pole barn. Recently a utility worker in Florida found out that a 50 year old pole broke off and paralyzed him from the neck down. My posts were put on sand and two bags of rock put around them. I had treated landscaping timbers eaten by termites in 4 years. If I had it to do over, I would insist on having a cement pad under my posts, termite treat the holes before they are back filled, and make something to anchor the poles to the cement floor. I don't care how good your posts are, sooner or later the posts will rot at ground level. This past summer, I had my barn termite treated. Have rigged up a way for my posts not to settle too.
I would also recommend, removing the sod, elevating the ground so rain water will run away from barn. I put my floor down after the building was build. Kept the sun from drying the concrete. Don't have the first crack.
I like eves on the sides to keep the rain and green mold from running down the sides. I like the idea of putting translucent panels under the eves to light the barn.
