Enclose one end at least. Tin screwed together makes them stronger in wind.

My last week in Viet Nam we had a typhoon come thru our base and do a lot of damage. When i got to the airfield to fly out  i saw a hanger that was built with 1ft. steel i-beams and tin sheeting. On one end the tin on the roof was gone and the end i-beam that was canter-levered out for the roof had a 1/4 twist in the middle of it just like a giant had grabbed it in his hands and twisted it. There were 29 helicopters there that were destroyed,.....a rotor here, a tail rotor there, a chunk of fuselage in-between or whatever. Rained so hard that you could not see more than 30 ft at the most, and the rain was going parallel to the ground.

Sledhead,
SOO correct on your posting, we all have had issues of some sort, our biggie was a 150' Ham Radio tower, long story short, I built it, the inspecter later says boy you must get good TV reception !  TV antenna are exempt or were here. Code book is not clear, so I just did it. Grin

Looks nice, but to me doesn't look stout enough to with stand a high wind. Need some angled cross members for reinforcement. Good Luck, TomC

Gee guys I am sure his structure is engineered for his location or they would not gave him a permit in that county just about every place requires a engineers stamp on a metal structural for wind 

I know where he is located wind is not a big factor but nothing is engineered for a category 5 tornado 

good luck

Cliff, out in country here in texas (100 acres) you build what you are big enough to build. No permits, inspections or folks telling you No!

I live in the country here also but they are strict on metal buildings and wind rating  

We have a place in Anahuac Tx on the coast in Chambers county I been fighting for 2 years for permit on a 40x60 metal building there.

Like you say some counties in Texas are easy for a long time when we lived in Conroe the Montgomery county was anything goes not that way there now in Montgomery County it's all about revenue

The Texas Gulf Coast has always been tough and for good reason with hurricane winds blowing though. We tried to get a Bus cover built in Surfside Tx. and found out you can't even tie in your RV overnight to your house unless you have a permit and then just a few days and have to move it, Only 4 or 5 permits a year.
