I drew up the design for my 60x40 x14' steel framed shed and had all of the computations done.
Bought and cut all of the 2"x6"x1/8" frame, welded all of the 1/2" base plates and connector plates and 1/4" plates for the purlins and girts, all of these were supplied cut to size.
We are not in a snow area and are not rated for the higher cyclone specifications.
I had all of the foundation holes drilled, located all of the hold down bolts in the correct locations and concreted them, then poured the slab. As you can see I then just used a scissor lift and a couple of mates to put it all together .

I found a quote I had from a local lumber yard for roof trusses from 2014.

40 foot span, 4-12 pitch and 6 feet on center. Around $200 a truss. I had a quote done for 6.

Watching Red mature has been more fun than watching our kids.We have not had to deal with the after effects. Red we for the most part are proud of the way you have turned into a productive man. I do see the 20 year that you may attain the title of crumguion . I am not even close enough for spell check .

not really it is high carbon steel designed to withstand torsional loads and carry drilling mud downhole to lube and clean the cut.

when it has been used to its' cycle life it is sold as surplus. the material is very similar to spring steel, hard to weld and most often magnetized .

Quote from the local steel supplier puts the 4x6 tube out of reach. $250 each. Would need 16 total.

Option B would be wood posts but with steel brackets.

Example:
https://www.permacolumn.com/store-sturdi-wall

With posts sitting on a knee wall I think think that would greatly reduce the risk of damage from rot and termites.

Option C, but unlikely would be buying a used 40x60 steel building and taking it down my self. I have seen a few, but no one wants to let me take two months to dismantle.

Option B looks like the best.

Tim, isn't there any oil outfits in your state where you could get tubing or oil pipe that has been taken out of service?
I would also start haunting auctions, and scrap dealers. If they know you are interested many of them will save stuff for you. It would be better to use pipe in termite country.
