I was contacted today by a guy who got his hands on some old utility poles that a town recently removed. He wants to install them as beams to support floor joists for a house. He wants to use some of them as piers (bury them 6' deep in the ground) and then run other utility poles on top for the beams. He would then run conventional 2x10 floor joists on top and build a 2x6 wood stud framed house.
The poles are 12" diameter at the start and taper down to 10". Does anyone know of any kind of load tables for something like this?
