They just put the last screw in my 40x60x12 Cleary Building today.

Working from home.

Super excited.

Now I get to do my thing inside!

What sold you on using Cleary? Did you have any concerns about the quality and lifespan of the Valspar Weather XL SMP paint system that Fabral uses in their Grandrid 3 Plus panels (that Cleary uses)?

I'm going through this right now with a bunch of pole barn constructors here in upstate NY.

Thanks,

Kai @ WBC

I had zero issues with the Fabral metal. If I remember correctly it has a 35 or 40 year fade guarantee.

I like the bolted trusses. I liked the non spliced column. I like the fact they have built over 100,000 post frames since 1978.

I have a 30x40 Wick on the property, it's well built. One neighbor has a Wick and a Morton.

I looked at many post frames before deciding on the Cleary. In fact I could have had the Amish build the same size for around $6K less.

Picture of interior. Dry wall will be finished this weekend, central heat and air (round duct) will be finished first of next week. I'm all wired. Paint on walls and floor and I'm moving in.

Just my dad and I have done this. Way too much work. I think it about killed him!

Your shop looks real well thought out . Something i saw and wondering about your Grizzly down flow bench looks to be up against the wall behind them are they exhausting into a area behind them as the info on there web site says you most be 12" from a wall

Thanks Ron!

These smaller units exhaust from the side. The larger unit exhausts from the back. That is why I went with two smaller benches.

Have you looked at the Baleigh line of metal benches?

They say these are not recommended for metal but I had my last one 8 years with zero issues. Just kept fresh filters in it..
