More Reasons You Should Go With A Pole Barn


We recently published a piece on why you should go with a pole barn versus a conventionally built barn and among the main reason being they are cheaper, we listed other reasons too. Such as the strength they offer and the versatility of where the can be built.

Other reasons that you may want to consider going with a pole barn on your land is that they are more energy efficient. A typical pole barn will have 8-foot centers for the posts sometimes greater, which allows fewer thermal breaks than what a conventional constructed barn, garage, or workshop does at 16 inches to 24-inch centers.

In areas where the weather can play havoc on a structure, a pole barn offers the structural stability that a conventional structure doesn’t. The posts are buried deep in the dirt which conducts lateral forces aka wind loading, on the walls directly into the ground. Thus the pole barn is less likely to collapse. With conventional framing made of wood on a cement foundation, they are quick to collapse in fires or high winds.

A pole barn is more versatile in how they can be used. Some of the more common and popular uses are:  

  • Barns

  • Cabins

  • Garages

  • RV Shelter

  • Utility buildings

  • Vacation homes

They are also popular among commercial properties as well such as

  • Aircraft hangars

  • Banks

  • Gymnasiums

  • Office buildings

  • Retail stores

  • Strip malls



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.
