6x6 post is off center of concrete footer


A mason cant get footing exact like that it happens all the time, thats why they are 24x24. By the time the framer squares his building and tweeks it here and there they always are off. You landed pretty close to the center and to me, hats off to the mason!

The way we work is i draw what i want, send it to Arch. He draws official plan, i submit and build it. Only thing he might change is size of beams, in which i call and argue how much weight will really be on the beam and we compromise usually lol
If any arch draws a plan and doesnt answer questions isnt a very good arch. But its a pole barn so its pretty cut and dry.

Hand drive, Thanks for your response. I am at the site as we speak and have just laid out the strings for my parameters. Two of the four posts are within 1" of center. The other two with one being worst case would be no closer than about 7" to the edge of the 24" dia. Pad. Now that I've laid it out I feel much better. Please let me know what you think. Thanks again, Walt

Hammer, that's exactly how I did was to draw very crude plans and have the arch review and make it legal. I understand the thought that people say "that's why they are 24" in dia. To add a little wiggle room but due to my second floor area in the last 24' of the building the arch wanted 24"x1' pads for weight distribution. Thanks, walt
