Before Getting Started
This Helpful Hints Guide has been developed to help you construct your post frame
building and makes no representation or guarantee that you will be able to successfully
complete your building. It is important that questions be asked before you get too far
into construction. Study this manual carefully before starting construction. You can use
it as a guide and refer to it during construction.
Have you talked to your local building inspector? We suggest you check with your
local building official regarding site location, permit procedures, safety regulations and
specifications of the materials used to construct your new building.
PLEASE NOTE: This Helpful Hints Guide is intended solely to provide general
knowledge as to one of the many ways that a post frame building may be
constructed. Builders who utilize this guide must proceed at their own risk and
are solely responsible for complying with all the building codes which pertain
to their community.
hereby disclaims all liability for any damages
whether consequential, incidental, special or otherwise, which may result from
following this Helpful Hints Guide.
has many prints available to the builder to better aid them in the
construction of the post frame building: Mini-Prints, Code Exempt Prints, and
Engineered Prints. See your store for details.
Before the building is delivered make sure that your site is clear. Prepare the site
so it is level 6' beyond the building on all sides. Remember to make sure there is
enough room for the delivery truck to move around on your site. The bigger the
building, the bigger the truck delivering the building will be.
Warning: If metal is not being used immediately, store panels and trim in a dry
area out of the sun. See handling instructions on page 36 for more information.
Tip: If you plan to have a concrete floor now or at a later date please make sure
the material list has been adjusted properly to accommodate this feature. By
putting in a concrete floor into your building you may lose the thickness of the floor
from your total interior height. Check for proper turning radius and clearance for
overhead doors.
Items recommended for the construction of your post frame building:
• Mason line
• Post Frame Building Hammer
• Tape Measure
• Hand Saw
• Framing Square • Level
• Chalk Line
• Nail Apron
• Metal Snips
• Pencil
• Chain Saw
• Circular Saw
• Drill• Mini-Print

All of the above items can be purchased at your local
store.
Traditional Post Frame Construction
String Line Building Dimensions
• Locate and stake corners of the building. Grade should be level and free of obstructions.
• Drive three stakes into the ground spaced about 6' apart and approximately 4' behind
each building corner stake.
• Nail batter boards to the outside of the stakes, approximately 12" above the grade.
• Starting at corner #1, stretch a mason line directly over the top of the corner stakes for one
side of the building. Finish stretching the mason line between the remaining corners to form
the outline of the building. Check for proper dimensions, making adjustments as needed.

Call your local digger’s hotline to check for
underground lines before digging.
Square the Building
• Measure 6' from any corner along the sideline and make a mark. Measure 8' from the
same corner along the end line and make a mark. The diagonal distance between the
marks should be exactly 10'. If not, adjust a line at the corner to fit. Repeat this process
at the next three corners.
• To square mason lines, measure diagonally. To be squared, their
measurements need to be the same. Adjust as necessary.
Make sure your sidewall and end wall

your strength for wind loads and frost protection.
Dig the corner holes first. Tamp the bottom of the hole to
avoid settling. Place a concrete pad in the bottom of each
hole.
Secure treated anchor blocks 1⁄8" from the bottom of each
post with 10d, 3" nails on each side of the post. Repeat for
all posts. These anchor blocks increase the building’s wind
uplift rating.
Note: If treated anchor blocks are wider than the post, use
the pattern in the diagram.
Grade
For buildings with bookshelf girts refer to page 24.
Fit the sides of the post into the corner of mason line layout,
allowing room (1½") for girts between the mason line and the
post for both the sidewall and end wall. The outside of the
girts is the final dimension measurements for the building.
Keep checking to make sure the post is plumb and in line
with the mason line. Nail a temporary 2" × 4" brace on the
inside of the corner post near the top extending to stakes in
the ground. Bracing should be applied in both the sidewall
and end wall directions.
- Fill the hole with dirt and tamp solid.
- Repeat this with all corner posts.

Thickness of Footing
Width
Follow your print for the correct post length.
Stand the corner post vertically in the hole so the longer
width sets perpendicular to the sidewall and the shorter
width runs parallel to the sidewall. I.E. for 4×6 post, the
4" dimension runs parallel and the 6" dimension runs
perpendicular to the sidewall.

Laminated Columns; A Stronger Choice
Midwest Manufacturing has incorporated Laminated Columns for certain building specifications.
Rivet clinched Laminated Columns are an option to solid treated posts. Rivet clinched
Laminated Columns provide advantages over solid posts: More versatile - up to 60' or more in
length; Engineered straight with hydraulic pressure, then rivet clinched for superior holding power;
Reinforced joints with 20 gauge steel plates; Multiple lumber grades - custom built with treated
6
lumber at the base; Safer with pre-built notch - no chain saw on ladder needed.
Locate Sidewall Posts /Laminated Columns
Temporarily tack a 2" × 4" block on the end wall side
of the corner post, approximately 1' up from grade.
Measure to your particular spacing along mason line,
stick a nail in the ground directly under the mason line.
Continue down the sidewall in the same fashion. At
each nail location, dig a hole on the inside of the string
for the sidewall posts.
Jamb Posts (Door Posts)
Note: For overhead doors the door width is
measured from inside of post to inside of post.
For sliding doors the door width is measured from
center of post to center of post. See pages 16-23.

Tip: Keep posts plumb while installing girts.
Remove the spacer block above the grade board and
place spacer blocks on top of the first row of girts, and
nail second row of girts into place on both sidewalls and
end walls. Repeat.
Special Note: If you have a sidewall overhang: The
overhang soffit nailer is not installed at the same time
as the girts and should be installed when the overhangs
are being framed. See page 28. Allow room for jamb
material when placing girts on a jamb post. See door
framing details page 16-17. Before installing the last
girt, set all headers.

Truss Location
Measuring from the bottom of the grade board up
each post, the height of your wall, put a mark. This
is where your truss bearing will be located.
For example: If your wall height is 10' tall, the
measurement from the bottom of your grade board
to the bottom of the truss would be 10' (120").
Warning: If you are planning to have a concrete
floor now or in the future make sure the material list
has been adjusted properly for this particular feature.
To maintain the interior clearance from the top of the
finished floor to the bottom chord of the truss, the
thickness of the slab will have to be added on to the
height of the building.

Use a square to mark post for notching.
Notch Posts 1½" for single ply truss so entire truss
can rest on notch.
Laminated Columns
The truss will sit in the saddle of the laminated
column. The bearing block will need to be cut to
the proper length and secured to column to bring the
truss bearing height equal to the building’s wall height.

Raising Trusses
Before raising trusses, mark the top edge of the truss for the
proper purlin spacing, starting at the peak of the truss and
move towards the eave. Place the mark for the bottom
edge of the peak purlin. See diagram.
Note: Purlins will not exceed 24" O.C. for
agricultural buildings. For engineered
buildings please refer to
Engineered Prints.
Raising the End Frames
At one end of the building, Eave
raise an end frame on the
outside of the end wall posts.
The bottom edge of the truss
must align with the building
height you marked on the
post. The heel of the end
frame should extend 1½"
past the outside edge of the
post. Nail the end frame to
the corner post first, checking to be sure the corner post
and endwall posts are plumb.
Finish nailing the end frame
to the endwall posts at each
frame to post location.

Tab-Loc Sliding Door Assembly
1. Important! Check opening size prior to assembling. If vertical members need to be shortened,
it must be done at this time. Verticals may be shortened to almost any desired length.
2. Select level assembly area with clearance to turn door and lay out members.
3. Align the vertical tabs with the lateral member cutouts keeping
the open channel of door laterals towards bottom of door.
4. With laterals and verticals in place, bend tabs loosely.
5. After assembling loosely, bend tabs to tight position, working
from center lateral toward top and bottom of door.
6. Square door frame.
7. Pry tab in final lock position
with a screwdriver. This aligns all
members and holds frame square.
8. Turn door frame over and repeat

Installation of Guide Rail Brackets
Attach guide rail brackets to guide rail loosely with 3⁄8" × ¾" bolts. One bracket and one bolt is
furnished for each hole in guide rail. Align end of guide rail with inside of door opening.
Important! To prevent the wind from lifting doors away from the building, fasten guide rail
brackets to the gradeboard with 5⁄16" carriage bolts or 3⁄8" lags. Do not use Nails. Hold the
bottom of guide rail approximately 1¼" below the bottom of the door.
Make adjustments so doors operate properly. Tighten
all fasteners to secure brackets and guide rail in its
final position.
Tips: Continuous guide rail engages bottom lateral
of door and guides the door along building keeping it
secure and away from the siding. Slotted holes in
guide rail bracket allow lateral and vertical adjustments.
To adjust door in and out, turn the lateral adjustment
bolt with wrench to obtain desired clearance.

Bookshelf Truss Placement
Truss Location
Field cut exterior plies of
laminated column 3" above
top of truss. This will allow
nailing area for edge purlin
or overhang jack.
Measuring from the bottom of the grade board
up each post, the height of your wall, put a mark.
This is where your truss bearing will be located.
For example: If your wall height is 10' tall, the
measurement from the bottom of your grade board
to the bottom of the truss would be 10' (120").
Warning: If you are planning to have a concrete
floor now or in the future make sure the material
list has been adjusted properly for this particular
feature. To maintain the interior clearance from
the top of the finished floor to the bottom chord of
the truss, the thickness of the slab will have to be
added on to the height of the building.

Use a square to mark post for notching.
Trusses will sit in notch and may not
extend beyond post.
Laminated Columns
The truss will sit in the saddle of the
laminated column. The bearing block
will need to be cut to the proper length
and secured to column to bring the truss
bearing height equal to the buildings wall
height.

Bookshelf Trusses, Purlins, and Braces
Raising Trusses
Before raising trusses, mark the top edge of the truss for
the proper purlin spacing, starting at the peak of the truss
and move towards the eave. Place the mark for the bottom
edge of the peak purlin. See diagram.
Note: Purlins will not exceed 24" O.C. for
agricultural buildings. For engineered
buildings please refer
to Engineered Prints.

overhang is measured from the
outside edge of the girt less 1½"
to the end of the overhang jack.
With your jacks on your end frames,
run a mason line from end overhang
jack to end overhang jack along the
sidewall. Then install overhang jacks
on trusses, making sure the ends of
overhang jacks are flush with mason
line. When all of your jacks are in
place install your 2×4 soffit nailer and
fascia board.

Storing, Handling, and Cutting Steel Panels
Storing
• Specifically check your quantities, colors, and lengths
• All materials should be used as soon as possible
• Steel bundles should be stored indoors with enough of a slope to allow
any moisture from condensation to drain out of the bundle
• Bare galvanized panels should be installed immediately and not be stored outside
• Condensation or rain water trapped on bare galvanized panels can form a wet
storage stain, also known as white rust.
Handling
• Do not slide steel panels across each other.
• To properly lift a panel from the bundle place hands underneath the
under lap side of the panel and lift up and away from the bundle.
• Lifting steel onto roof or building grab the panel
in the flat of the panel and not in the rib.
• Bending steel is best done with a hand seamer
or a brake press.
Scratches
• A scratch in the panel may only cause rust
if it is deep enough to cut through the paint
and zinc coat.
• Color-matched touch-up and spray can paint
is available if you happen to scratch a panel.
• Touch-up paint is color matched to all Pro-Rib®
• Perfect for scratches and nicks
• Beveled brush great for tiny spots or thin lines.
• Quarts and gallons available for color matching
other components of your building.

Steel Panel Installation:
Proper lapping of Steel Underseat
Proper
Overseat
Proper lapping of steel panel is very important in the panel’s ability to prevent leaking.
The anti-syphon drain channel must be clear of debris and obstructons for the panel’s ability
to minimize the potential of capillary action of water from getting under the steel panel.
Undertight
Proper Fastener Tightness
Proper
Overtight
Fastener tightness is critical in the longevity of the fastener’s ability to help prevent leaks and
structural load carrying capacity. Over-torquing of screws will reduce the screw’s withdrawal
capacity, regardless of the construction materials involved. Under-torquing of screws will
increase the potential of roof leaks.
Fastener location is critical for installers to minimize the potential of oil canning, dimples, and
other appearance related issues.
Note: Both professional and first time installers have fewer problems with oil canning, dimples,
and other appearance related fastener seating problems if they install them on top of the rib.
Fastener Specifications:
Roof: Nails must be installed on top of the rib. Screws can be installed
on top of the rib or in the flat surface of the panel between the ribs.
Wall: Nails or screws can be installed on top of the rib or in the flat surface between ribs.

Note: Screw lengths may need to be adjusted.
Note: If an alternative fastening method is used, then the material list may have to be altered
for proper fastener lengths.
37
Hanging Sidewall Steel
Note: Optional Bottom Trim May be installed at this time.
Note: Positioning of the first panel is critical. The first panel
installed establishes the alignment and layout of the entire
wall. It is very important that the first panel is accurately
positioned and squared before fastening it in place.
Tip: When laying out the steel panel have the overlap
side of the panel away from the main line of sight.
Tip: You may want to start at a corner away from the
prevailing wind.
Cut the first rib off leaving ¼" of rib on the first sheet of
side steel (Fig. 1). Position the first panel so it is square in
the corner. Make sure the first sheet of sidewall steel is
level and the top of the sheet is even with the top edge
of the edge purlin. This should leave approximately 3" of
grade board exposed at the bottom (Fig.2).
Using 1½" washer nails or 1" screws, secure the top and
bottom of the steel panel at the lap next to the rib, to
assure proper lap and seating of the steel panel. Securing
the panel in this manner will assure all laps to be seated
and will not allow the steel to grow or stretch as you are
running it. Once all the panels are in place and secure
only at the lap, snap a chalk line at each mid-girt location
and finish fastening the wall with 2" neoprene washer nails
or 2" screws on top of the rib. At the top and bottom of the
panels use 1½" fasteners on both sides of each rib, for the
length of the building.

Note: Do not put fasteners on the rib at the top and bottom

Endwall panels are fastened in the same
manner as the sidewall panels. The only
difference is the gable sheets are always
started from the middle of the building
and run towards the corners. The panels
should be measured and the gable angle
cut off of the top before installing the
panels.

Start
Installing Roof Steel
Note: Install optional Eave Trim before roof steel is installed.
Note: Install optional inside closure strips before placing
each roof panel. Be careful not to stretch the closure strips.
Nail a temporary 2×4 block on the outside of each end truss
extending 4" to 6" beyond the heel of the truss on both ends.
The length that you extend the 2×4 will determine the
overhang length.
Run a mason line the full length of the building between
these blocks. This mason line determines the length of the
eave.
Cut the first rib off leaving ¼" of rib on the first roof sheet
of roof steel. Lay down the first roof steel panel, squaring it
with the mason line. The roof panels are installed similar to
the wall panels in layout. The only difference is the middle
fastener is secured to the top of the rib instead of the flat.
Fasten the sheets on the rib only.

Using 2½" washer nails or 2" screws, fasten roof at top

when using screws; on the rib only when using nails.
Corner and Gable Trim
Corner trim: Level the face of the trim with one side holding it up tight to the roof steel.
Fasten into place when level.
Gable trim: When applying the gable trim, make sure the top side of the trim is in line with the
roof and the side of the gable trim is in line with the end wall.
Fasten the top part to every purlin and the bottom part to the ribs on the end wall steel.

Horse Stalls
Lumber Requirements
The first step in building your stall is to decide
on your finished dimensions, which determines
the lengths of lumber required. The following
specifications cover the lumber requirements for
each wall model. Lumber listed is for 12' wide walls.
Should your needs be different, just change the
lumber lengths accordingly. Treated lumber is
recommended if using 2×6 × 12'. Lumber from
front wall can be used for door bottom rather
than plywood.
Front Wall with Grillwork and Door:
• 1 pc. ¾" × 48" × 96" plywood (smooth 1 side)
- for bottom half of sliding door.
• 1 pc. 2×6 × 48" door header board
• 9 pcs. 2×6 × 96" wall boards
• 1 pc. 2×12 × 144" track board
• 2 pcs. 2×2 × 36" door channel filler
Front Wall System
Door dimensions are 48" wide, 86" high.
Overhead clearance must be at least 94½"
to accommodate the door, trolley, and track.
System comes complete with the following:
Grillwork sections:
10' front includes 1 - 24" & 1 - 48"
12' front includes 2 - 48"
• 2 End channels
• 4 Header channels
• 1 Wall Brace Assembly Screws
Side Wall System

Solid Front Wall with Door:
• 1 pc. ¾" × 48" × 96" plywood (smooth 1 side)
- for bottom half of sliding door.
• 1 pc. 2×6 × 48" door header board
• 9 pcs. 2×6 × 96" wall boards
• 1 pc. 2×12 × 144" track board
• 2 pcs. 2×2 × 36" door channel filler
• 11 pcs. 2×6 × 144" wall boards
Solid Side Wall:
• 17 pcs. 2×6 × 144" wall boards
Typical corner posts are standard 4×4 lumber.
Five (5) posts are required for the first stall and
three (3) additional posts for each stall thereafter,
when constructed side-by-side.
Note: All 4×4 posts should be 8' in length above
the ground. Longer posts are required if they are
to be anchored in the ground.
Horse Stalls Assembly Instructions
Post Installation
After making your lumber
list, the next step is to layout
the stall. Install all corner posts
with 8' of length above ground
and lateral dimensions at 10' or
12' on centers, depending on
the width of the walls you have
selected. Be sure they’re all
plumb, level and true.
Next, install the center door
post wall with a 4' dimension
(on centers) from the corner
post on the side that you want
the door (see Stall Arrangement drawing).
Take note of the 1½" offset
of the center post, which is
necessary so that the sliding
door can open past the post.
The front wall and center post
must all be flush.
With all posts in place, you
are now ready to install the
walls you’ve selected. Unpack
each carton as you’re ready for
installation and account for all
parts on the packing list.
Review the assembly drawings
to familiarize yourself with parts
placement and read all
instructions carefully.

Our columns are an engineered product.
You know what you are getting and what
the column is capable of withstanding
before you install it. You don’t get that
with a 4x6 or 6x6 piece of timber.
It’s not just glue and finger joints holding
these columns together. There are thread
locked wires driven straight through the
layers of these columns and then rivet
clenched on both sides to provide
superior holding power.
Our columns feature a 20 gauge
stainless steel plate at all splice points
in the column. This provides maximum
strength even at what would normally
be the weakest point.

Premium Pro- Rib is one of the most versatile members of the Pro-Rib
family of quality products. It is truly a premium wall and roof panel whose
applications span a tremendous variety of residential, commercial, and
industrial construction projects. The superior performance of the Premium
Paint System sets this panel apart from the crowd.
Our columns are straight. Hydraulic
pressures systems generate hundreds of
pounds of pressure over the entire length
of the column to straighten it before it is
manufactured.
Our columns are more versatile. We build
columns up to 60' or greater. Try getting
a 6x6 - 60' from your local lumber yard!
We also provide multiple lumber grades
so that your columns are built for your
application. Not overbuilt or overpriced.
We use a galvanized thread lock wire
in all areas of the column except for
the treated portion that will contact the
ground. This area gets coated stainless
steel wire protection. Midwest columns
can also be built with 4 or 5 plys.
Our columns are safer. They feature a
pre-built notch. This allows for the truss
to sit firmly in the column and eliminates
the need to carry a chain saw up a ladder
to notch the timber.
The nations’s leading nail manufacturer
does not make a nail long enough to
go completely through three layers of
dimensional 2" lumber. Our process
doesn’t need a nail because it makes its
own. We drive all the way through the
layers, making this the column you can
count on!
