I have nothing against post frame houses and am working on one right now that I am converting from a standard foundation, crawl space, platform frame house to post frame with 4 ply 2x6 PT glulam post 8' oc, 2x4 girts @ 24'' oc. inside and out, roof trusses 48'' oc with 2x4 purlins @ 24'' oc., in 24'' x 48'' dia concrete footing and a slab on grade...all covered w/ metal.
One story, 10' walls, 2500 + - sf conditioned space.
My client, who is also a builder, tells me that he "thinks" it will be cheaper. I could see it if it were a rectangle, but this is not just a rectangle. I am curious what other members think. Sf cost comparison if there is such a thing.
Nicer "custom'' subdivision homes are well into the $250.00 sf and up.
