We plan on building our house on our waterfront parcel across the street from the garage next year. We spent alot of upfront time thinking about the colors and look of the garage as we wanted it to match with what we do with the house. Here are some inside pics of finished 2nd story and one from the water (Dockside)

Oh wow, you're in Cicero huh? I live on the north shore in Cleveland. I've seen your boat out at 3 mile before I think! Your barn looks great! What's the inside measurements of the living space? My mother will be living in it when it's done, so a bedroom, bath, kitchen and such will have to be in it also. That's kind of why I'm hesitant to use attic trusses, I really don't want to lose much space side to side up there and end up with something long and narrow.

Ding, Ding, Ding... We have a winner!

I would bet that this project would be cheaper in the long run using metal building construction.

The e-bay building someone spoke about 'ARE NOT DEALS!' Check with your areas builders for small metal building manufactures. Make sure the building are 'engineered' for your codes with respect to IBC or governing code, wind, lateral and snow loading. Your live and dead loads will need to be calculated for the loft or 150 psf is an overkill number you can use - again check with with your codes!

Also - don't forget the majors. Butler, Star, VP, Metallic, Rigid, Kirby to name a few. EVERY metal building manufacture is hungry right now. But, line it out quickly - I'm hearing a steel material increase in coming next month/early Sept.

Best of luck!

I want this 40' deep and 12' walls. I don't think metal is an option with double width doors and wood span would be difficult. This design is 62 wide.

You can easily clear span 32' with a floor truss system, than rafter the roof with collar ties.

Agree floor trusses will easily span 32'. A 16" PRI-80 I joist will span up to 34' 12" OC and 31' 16" OC.

THANK YOU! I never even thought about that option. I have a truss company working on it (called this morning) and they should have something for me Monday sometime as well as Gambrel trusses for the roof. Again, a huge thank you to everyone who has given their thoughts!!!!!
