pole barn ? @ span length & size lumber req..


I will be building an enclosed 24'x36' pole barn and pulling permit to do so. Here is a link to the barn plan I will be building http://www.rodeobarns.com/s3624.html I plan on using 6"x6" treated posts set in concrete and spaced 12' apart on exterior and interior walls. My question is: Since there will be no walls supporting these, Do I need to run 2-LVL beams on all of these spans or can I get by with less, code-wise? I had to run these on my garage door headers because of the length of span. Some of the interior spans will be supporting ceiling joists and there will be a loft. Also, what size ceiling joists would i need to span 12'? Thanks.

Do you plan on using the upstairs?......If so.....if it were mine, I would place the 6x6 post every 6'....I probably would place them 6' apart even if I was not going to use the upstairs.

I spoke with an engineer about what will be required, lots of LVL beams and $$$. I am thinking of going 20'x 30' with 10' OC.....
