I threw together a quick building about like you describe for my location, a 4 foot spacing was over $500 more than an 8 foot normal spacing. Donít know why you would want a 4 foot spacing.

Could do other adjustments to be more efficient too, this is just one item.

Got to play with the options and find the logical specs that make a pole barn shine.

I put trusses on 4 ft because a stick built the trusses will be on 2 ft, osb decking, and shingles.

The guy who built my pole barn said metal roof and shingle roof same price. My pole barn was built for snow load.

The blizzard of 1978 flattened many pole barns.

At home depot right now.
Shingles is $27.00
OSB is $11.00

27 + 11 = 38
38 / 32 = $1.1875
1.1875 x 3 (because metal is sold in 1 foot by 3 foot sections) = $3.56
Your metal roof would have to be #3.56 a foot to be the same price.

The trouble with your program is it forces you to deck the roof with OSB no matter if you put shingles or metal.
Poles barns are not usually decked with OSB on the roof.
