Kevin and Rebecca Berning liked the aesthetic appeal and longevity of metal, so they asked for McElroy Metal and their Mesa panel. This barn in Fort Wayne, Indiana, uses a complex system of trusses and lean-to’s along with a floor system of steel I-beams to carry the main building load almost the length of the building. McElroy also used steel posts to carry the building load in key areas.
This is a gambrel scissor truss with a cap to it. There is also a 30’ clear-span floor system that creates a second story. The gable end has some of the largest individual windows that Pella makes in order to get as much light as possible upstairs.
