Post frame houses are a simplified technique in the building industry that are adapted from the traditional technique of timber-framing. With post frame houses, the need for studs and framing are replaced with large posts that have one end buried into the ground. Post frame houses involve a foundation built that provides structural support, vertical support, and horizontal support provided by girts.

Post Frame House Benefits

A Quick Build With a Small Crew
After the girts, poles, and trusses are done, a small crew finishes up the construction in a brief period, often under a month.

Stronger Than Other Construction Styles
Post frame houses are usually stronger than other types of constructed houses because the columns are buried below the frost line which makes them more resistant to weather conditions. Thus, they are more stable.

They are Flexible in Construction

For the homeowner that wants high ceilings, pole frame houses construction is the answer. If you want a loft, not a problem. If you want a unique staircase, no problem. The homeowner’s own unique style and taste can be met fairly easily in most cases.

I worked with Monte on a new project and he is very professional. I have seen his quality of work first hand. I would highly recommend Bradford Buildings for quality Pole Barns in Tulsa and surrounding areas.

Kenley finished up my pole barn last night and it looks really nice.

I have to say that Kenley, Seth and all the guys involved did a great job and were real easy to talk to and get along with. I’m real happy with the building and how it looks. I’d recommend you guys to anyone.

Thanks for all your help.
