Pole Barn FAQs

This is an important place to start any building project. It is advisable to contact your local building department or planning department. You will provide the physical address and a description of what you are planning to build. This issue is usually settled over a phone call.

Here is some good news. Often times pole structures are less subject to building codes than traditional builds. This is often due to them being separate from residential structures. Also, the nature of the construct, with poles being driven into the ground for support, as opposed to concrete foundations, can lend to more lenient coding.

Pole Barn Information

Discover The Benefits of Pole Barn Construction

Pole buildings, also known as barns, have a wide variety of construction and design, but traditionally were used in the agricultural industry. In recent years they have been expanded to usage in an incredible variety of applications. The reasons will be discussed in this article, but are mainly due to their post-frame construction. As we look at pole barn structures in comparison to stick frame buildings, the value of the pole design will become evident. But let’s first make sure we are clear on terms, specifically an exact definition of a pole barn.

Details for the Pole Barn

Pole buildings are historically described as larger structures used in agriculture. They typically have no rooms beneath them, like basements, extend high into the air with the trusses, and cover lots of spacing. Most use wood posts that have been laminated as the main framing. Therefore, the term “post frame building” has become the most common term today.

The importance of the laminate post design is that they are prefabricated pieces. Engineers design them specifically for the project at hand. This includes the truss for the roof as well as the side wall posts. Because they are built for durability and more economical, pole buildings are great for a wide variety of residential and commercial needs: garages, work areas, sheds for special projects, animal housing, or even as a home to live in.

A Clearer Picture of the Difference between Pole-Barn Framing and Stick-Frame

Stick framing is very common in residential projects. Most homes, traditionally, have a structure that is made of untreated lumber, often affixed with screws or nails. Also, they are typically constructed at the build site. Post barn frames are designed on a computer and come to the site pre-cut and ready to be assembled. These laminated pieces can carry immense weight and ultimately cost less than a stick build home or barn.

Often when people think of residential homes, they think of untreated wood constructions. And when they think of simple, non-residential barns, they think of a laminated construction. But the post-frame construction can be pre-designed to hold any form of exterior and accommodate nearly any need. In fact, many of the stick frame buildings in existence today could have been designed to last longer and stand up to more effects using this system.

A Look at the Construction Differences between Pole-Barn and Stick-Frame

Pole Buildings involve pre-designed, specifically engineered, and prefabricated wooden pieces, laminated for durability, and brought on site to be easily fitted together. They are able to be spaced apart upwards of eight feet on the center. Vertical pieces are driven into the ground around 5 feet in depth. Since the product is laminated, there is no risk of decay. Horizontal structural members of the same material are used to connect the vertical poles.

Stick built framing begins with stacks of untreated lumber being delivered on site. Each piece must be cut and fitted along the way. Effectively all engineering is done on site. Wall studs represent the primary framing and extend to as much as twenty-four inch centers.

Since the lumber cannot be buried for support, these buildings are often built on a cement foundation. The need for such anchoring is a big part of the extra cost for this approach.

A List of Reasons to explore Pole Building options before and above Stick Framing

Options with Foundations

In a post framing setup, the beams are in the ground up to six feet deep. There is no other material required, like concrete slabs. Certainly cement flooring can be added for the base of the interior, but it not required and does not have to be established as a base for the poles.

Concrete costs can add between 10 and 20% to the cost of a building project. All stick frame constructions will require it as a base for constructions. When comparing costs between the two builds, don’t forget to figure in the cost of the foundation. Note that saving money here can fund a larger structure and opens up options for much less expensive flooring.

Preparing the Site

For concrete based stick frame projects, site preparation is extensive. The area must be leveled to a degree than an even pour can be accomplished. There are install costs associated with site preparation for cement flooring as well.

With pole buildings there are no requirements or limitations for the flooring. You could leave it as is for the initial part of the process. You could instill rock or complex flooring at a later date that does not have to be attached to the structure, and can be done at any time later.

Evaluating Site Conditions

In a traditional stick build, site conditions require a lot of upfront work. What kind of equipment will be needed for proper excavation of dirt? Is it sand or dirt or clay? How deep will it need to be moved to establish a proper base? Will dirt need to be brought in (often the case)?

Again, with laminated, engineered pole beams, they can be buried in nearly any soil condition and fitted together without the required foundation evaluations, plans and preparation costs.

Adding on Later

Most of us get interested at add-ons as time passes. Often times concrete foundations are limitations. With the pole design, extended overhangs, additional buried beams, and general expansion are much more simple and cost effective.

With stick forms you’ll once again have to start with a foundation cost and design before changing the covered area. This up-front cost is often prohibitive.

Building More Quickly

Pole barns have incredible advantages when it comes to speed of construction. There are fewer on-site preparation steps and costs. The materials come precut and perfectly adapted to one another. As soon as the main beams are buried connection between them can begin.

Additionally, with tightened construction time comes lower labor costs, as well as fewer crews. You won’t need a concrete crew and an assembly crew. Things go faster and more simply.

Enjoying Larger Openings

This one is easy to visualize. If the horizontal beams on a structure are eight feet wide, that allows for a great many options in between, from windows to double doors. If you wanted an eight foot opening in a stick frame building, extensive overhead work would be needed to support the weight of the structure. This would add to costs significantly.

If you are looking to construct something that needs wheeled equipment to go in and out, the choice is clear: pole building wider centers make almost all options possible. This applies most definitely to commercial sites, farming needs and places that store larger items.

Air flow is also a valid consideration. Cooling a facility is a big money task in most cases. Larger opening for wider and taller doors, and more extensive window options create better air flow throughout the building.

Achieving Greater Stability

Forces upon a structure transfer to its grounding. In other words, the nature of the foundation determines the strength of the building. When forces are leveled against a stick framed building, the integrity depends on the relationship of the untreated wood with the concrete base. But all of that is on the surface of the ground.

Because pole barn grounding is buried under the earth, the load of the elements transfers into the ground, which of course is nearly absolute stability. Fewer weaker links build dependability.

Greater Interior Space

Engineered laminated beams make them stronger than traditional lumber. This not only means wider horizontal beams, but also longer vertical runs without required lateral beams. The truss system can be more expansive meaning much wider open spaces within the building itself. This services larger interior spaces for equipment, storage and work.

This translates to fewer interior walls and supports. Often times walls are constructed in stick framed homes because some form of support is needed to keep the roof up. This problem is remedied by a much more durable truss construction that doesn’t have such needs. Again, all of this translates to lower costs, both in the labor and material departments.

Investing Longer Term

Any building you invest in has upfront costs. Ultimately , we want those costs to lead to longer lasting, more durable and dependable products that last for many years. With traditional untreated wooden structures, the boards are thinner and susceptible to the elements.

Post frame buildings are not only protected by lamination, but are thicker pieces of wood. They are weightier, stronger, and will last longer based on those simple differences.

Creating Better Insulation

Insulating against the elements is important in most applications, regardless of the region. Some areas have extreme heat, while others have seasonally low temperatures. At first glance, the wide open possibilities by the pole barn approach may seem less likely to be insulated well. But the opposite is true. Because there are fewer wooden beams, there can be more insulation! Imagine a 30 foot wall with only 5 horizontal beams, and insulation filling all of the open space.

Compare that to a stick build design which would have 15 or more pieces of wood. Much less insulation can be placed in the provided spaces. This can make it more difficult to meet minimal energy requirements in terms of local codes. Also, energy costs will certainly be higher.

Enjoying Limitless Options

Ultimately, the idea is for our team to construct a building that perfectly fits your needs. This could require extremely lofty ceilings. Post frame construction makes this more possible than ever. Whether you need to go higher or wider, a personally and perfectly engineered solution can be planned out, observed, and approved, before anything happens on site!
