Trusses are set into a notch cut in the support post to maximize load-carrying and uplift capability. The trusses are then nailed to the columns.   2" x 10" pressure treated mud board keep sidewall metal from ground contact, protect against rot and decay, and function as concrete forms for pouring the floor as well.
All trusses are factory built and computer engineered to meet specific loading capability of each individual building. They can also be designed for a ceiling load for sheet rock. Click here for the Kootenai County Snow Load Map (13Mb) for specific loading requirements in North Idaho.   Screws color matched to your exterior steel are standard. We also predrill our steel for straight lines (no chalk lines or pencil marks).
All overhead or sliding doors are spanned with K.D.F.L. 2" x 8" (rollup) or 2" x 12" (sliders).   Available in a variety of colors to provide an attractive matching or contrasting compliment to your building. See our photo album for examples.
Champion Steel Buildings uses 29 gauge steel panels which are available in a wide range of colors.   Base trim seals the bottom of the sidewall panels to prevent insect or rodent infiltration.
We incorporate bottom chord bracing (rat run) to fully utilize truss strength.   Wall light trim provides a smooth transition from sidewall steel panels to wall lights.
Building sizes are unrestricted and can be customized to meet your requirements. Standard sizes that provide the most economy are:
Height: 8' through 18' in 2' multiples
Width: 24', 30', 36', 40', 50', and 60'
Length: multiples of 8', 10' and 12'
  Eave trim give a clean finished look at the top of the sidewalls.
Posts are full sawn material, grade stamped pressure treated (0.60 CCA), set at the proper engineering depth, and backfilled with concrete. Posts can range from 6" x 6" to 6" x 12".   "C" trim covers cut steel edges around the overhead and entry doors and windows.
Doors can be placed in most locations of your buildling, and are engineered for ease of operation and minimal maintenance.   Jamb trim covers the jambs around your overhead door openings to eliminate the need for painting.
K.D.F.L. 2" x 6" or 2" x 8" (or larger as required per engineering) purlins on edge are joist-hung between trusses 2' O.C. (or closer per engineering).   Track covers supported by interlocking brackets keep out the weather and protect door hardware.
100% OSB roof decking is used control condensation.   Gable and corner trim give your building that finished look and seals up the building.
Translucent fiberglass eavelight panels are available in white or clear poly and come in lengths of 2' in the same configuration as the siding panels (optional).   The ridge cap is fastened with color matched screw fasteners, as are all of our trims, to seal off the peak completing a weather-tight roof system.
Standard vinyl windows are available in many sizes with regular or insulated glazing. All opening windows come with screens (optional).   Overhangs add a very nice appearance to any building (optional).
3' 0" x 6' 8" raised panel doors are equipped with keyed exterior lockset and custom trim.   Facia trim covers the wood facia on overhangs so you have that finished look.
K.D.F.L. 2" x 6" or 2" x 8" (depending on engineering) lumber is spaced 2' O.C. to support the wind loads being applied to the walls and to provide area for screw fasteners.   Soffits on an overhang add that finished touch and prevent birds and bees from nesting.
Stud walls can be easily framed between the poles along the ceiling joists, so you can insulate and finish off the interior of your building (optional).   Lean-to's and gable extensions are an inexpensive way to get a lot more roof coverage for extra storage (optional).
