    I love these threads. I put the full story of mine on another forum back in the day.

    I'll never forget the first night after mine was put up. I didn't have doors, electric, concrete or anything. All I had was a 2-bulb floodlight from Lowe's hanging from a rafter, powered by my Honda Generator. My 37AT was in one side, and my dually was in the other, and I was polishing the wheels on the dually in the middle of the night. I came in the house with tears of joy in my eyes, as I had been waiting my whole life for a toy box as such.

    Now my big boat is sold, but the building is still packed to the gills and then some. I just installed a 14K lift so I can play with the cars and trucks.

    Bulding of a Storage Shed 2.0

    So day one is in the books.

    I heard something that sounded like a small motor running around 6am and thought no way they are here. Would have called first so I rolled over and went back to sleep. At 7am I decided to look out the window and they were already drilling holes.

    Here is a photo to show how deep my pad is. The red on top is the pad, the brown under is the existing dirt in the yard. First picture is the deepest section of fill dirt, the second is the thinnest section of fill.

    Below are a couple photos of them getting the posts ready to set.

    And finally what I ended up with at the end of the day. I pretty much watched, but did mix the Portland cement in with the quickcrete on my own while they poured the yellow bags to make sure it was done to my liking. Every post but one 24' is set, it can't go in until they are setting the last roof truss. Well on their way.

    They said they'd be here around 7:30. Still haven't made it. Just started raining.

    I'm going to call them in a bit. If they aren't coming out today I may as well go to the office.

    I have "6x6" "GluLam" posts in my building. (Three 2x6s laminiated together.)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91nUG_n4Hwk

    This is exactly one my posts look like:

    Things that sold me on this (when I bought from Pioneer Pole Buildings)...
    -You have a handful of boards that have to be "coaxed" into warping vs. a single board which can happen with a solid 6x6.
    -The finger jointed lower portions (in the ground) are treated lumber, but everything above ground being Grade-A lumber.
    -My in ground portion of the post is totally sealed/wrapped in Teflon, AND they are parabolic shaped so the concrete in the hole sets around the post for anti-lift protection (winds).
    ---This is better than having your posts drilled through and having re-bar placed through them for lift protection.

    My posts have post protectors installed which provide upforce protection. No reedbar.

    I wanted my posts like yours, how we built my FILs, and how my BIL is building his now, but this builder will only use solid posts.
