Switzer Construction LLC recently built a pole building for a client out in Iron River, Michigan.
The owner of this property needed a new pole building to store his tractor and equipment. Switzer Construction LLC went out to access the site in September and got to work!
The team started by clearing and leveling the site removing all of the trees and brush from the construction zone. As a standard, Switzer always places cement footings at least 42″under the surface to avoid frost heaving during the harsh U.P. winters.
Next they put up the frame of the building using pressure treated posts on cement pads. High-grade studs were used for the wall girts and the roof now sits on continuous LVL header beams! As an extra line of defense, the crew also put the optional housewrap on this pole building to help keep wind driven rain out.
