The second day the concrete crew was working on our arena, I literally only took one photo. It was cold out, so was the general mood. It feels a bit odd pointing a camera at guys lifting & pounding, when they are trying to work. I would be annoyed. Besides, this day was all about the panels and it's just not that exciting (to me).
They used aluminum panels on our arena footings & walls (vs wood). Much lighter. Some guys love them, some hate them. I always find it interesting how the angle of a photo skews the perspective. That long paneled side sure doesn't look like 144' but it is, and it is much taller than appears.
You may remember from our barn build the walls will end up being buried. Inside and out. They are frost walls, somewhat like house basement walls. The building is secured to them and goes from the walls on up. If you look at the lower corner of the barn in any of the photos taken from either side, you can see the barn floor is close to the top of the panels.
Some people skip the expense of walls. If you live in a cold weather State like WI and don't put in frost walls you are asking for trouble.
