Can you enlighten me / us which way your going
The 15' metal posts will be bolted to the slab just like a metal building. I'm going to use doubled 8" c perlings for my plates. The trusses are designed to be on a 5' center, but I'm puting my on a 4' center and they will be bolted to the c perlings with angle iron brackets that will mimic hurricane clips. so it's part metal building and part wooden thus a hybrid.
