Ok, the ufer ground makes sense. Especially in a metal building. Thanks guys.

Hoping they start building on Monday.

Materials got dropped off today. Wouldn't be surprised to see them getting started tomorrow. Either way looks like the building is just a few days away. Click image for larger version

Did you get to test out the new grounding rod last night?!? Big metal structures like lightning I hear


I'd say it's great timing on the construction, and I'm glad they didn't have a chance to start hanging the panels yet. We had stuff blow all over the yard even though things were tied down pretty well.

Luckily we didn't have to test that ground rod. It did get pretty intense there for a bit though.

I shot a time lapse of them putting up the framework and posted it on YouTube. What's the best way to post the link?

Total of 4 videos in the playlist so far. This should be the link for the first one. 3 days totals a bit over 11 minutes of video. They should be done tomorrow, only lack some trim, the over head door, and cleaning up their mess.
