    Our company is building this salt shed for the Borough of Parryville in Northeast PA.

    Im not on the project, I only do flooring, but I stopped by to take some pics for you today.

    The Borough only has one snow plow as seen in the pics, kind of hard to imagine why they needed it so big?

    Looks sweet! I'm sure they went that tall so a dump truck can clear the ceiling when dumping.

    Are those walls a full 1' thick?!

    I want one! So do they plan on getting a couple years worth of salt at once?

    Town is small, I'll get details for you as to why it's so big when I see our job foreman on Monday. Although we mainly renovate homes, as evidence by our company name, a recent project was a complete covered bridge rehab after a guy pulling a backhoe smashed into all the rafters with the boom

    Designed to hold 175 tons of salt, they do buy as much as they can at once to control costs.

    Total project $115,000

    I too am stunned that that is $115000. I'm not in construction, but how does the price get so high?

    Some one is getting hosed I build and those studs would have to be gold plated to be that much! Is the drive being paved or does that include all the equipment and filled with salt? What are the measurements?

    Why run gerts all aound the outside walls if you are just going to sheath it? Seems like a waste of time and money with studs @ 16'' O.C. I could see if it were a pole barn and your poles were 6' apart.

    Who was the brainiac who speced out concrete walls? I hope that they spec'd out some specialized coating to protect it.

    I would think there going to steel side it and this makes it easier to keep your screw lines straight and make sure they all sink but thats one expensive shed!
