Default Steel poles for wood pole barn?

Anyone here used steel poles to support a otherwise wood pole barn?

Bouncing some ideas around. Hoping to begin building this winter.

Don't see why it would not work as long as the poles were more than 2" pipe.
4" or better 6" would be a fine structure.

2' pipe would be too small for me. 2 3/8" drill stem would work if it was set in concrete, as it is a heavier wall thickness.

What is the OD of the 2 3/8" drill stem? I am not familiar with that in my area.

I would think about using pads welded to the pipe and bolted to the cement.

Need to link Neal's build to this, he did it using the drill stem piping. Rest of structure wasn't wood, but just as easily could have been.

Search Smokin' Dodge.

Found the link.

I'm thinking of using 4x6 rectangle with 1/4 inch wall.

40x60 building with 14 feet to the eves. Thinking about a two foot tall knee wall also to put me at 16 feet. Zoning isn't a issue as I am agriculture.

Living area is going to be 20x40 and along the 60 foot side. Estimate three years time from start to finish.
