on a 20 x 30 pole barn, 6"x6" post every 10 ft for a total of 8 posts , 3 on each side and 4 across the back, can I have front 30 ft. span open with no posts and what size lvl and how many should I use.Its a basic no walls pole barn with just a 4/12 pitch roof with 2x8 rafters and 2x8 joist on 2ft centers.
If the trusses will bear on that beam, the answer is No Way! If they run parallel to that beam, then I think it might be possible. There are other factors to consider other than just the loading though.
