When using a bolt to fasten a truss to a pretreated post does the bolt have to be stainless or hot dip galvanized or can a standard carbon steel bolt be used? and where would this requirement be found?

The airport board is working on new design parameters for hangars and some concerns were voiced. the way the lease works is that the lessee will build their hangar and have a 20-30 year lease at which time the hangar would revert to the County. The concern the county commissioners have is that a post frame structure may be at the end of it's life expectancy at this point and they would be left with an unusable structure that would need to be removed. What are the thoughts of some of the experts in this area?

Hi I'm currently planning to use Post Frame techniques for a house I'm building. I've already chosen to use Perma-Column to keep the posts out of the ground. I'm wondering what options there are for the skirt board to avoid any ground contact of wood on the building. Can the skirt boards be removed after pouring the slab? Or can ripped cement boards or something that is rot-proof be used instead?
