Start Your Next Pole Barn or Post Frame Project With The Experts at Keim

A post frame building is a type of structure that uses large posts or poles as the primary support structure. The posts are usually set in concrete, making them strong and durable. Post frame buildings can be used for various purposes, including storage sheds, garages, workshops, and even homes.

One of the biggest benefits of post frame buildings is that they can be highly customized. For example, the size and spacing of the posts can be adjusted to accommodate larger doors or windows. In addition, the roof can be raised or lowered to create more headroom or allow for a loft's installation. As a result, post frame buildings are extremely versatile and can be tailored to suit a wide range of needs.

Build Within Your Budget - Sizing and Cost Considerations for Your Post Frame Building

When it comes to post frame buildings, there are many factors to consider regarding sizing and cost. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you plan your post frame building:

  • The size of the pole barn will largely be determined by the purpose for which it will be used. If you're planning on using it for storage, you'll need to factor in the size of the items you'll be storing. If you're planning on using it as a workshop, you'll need to factor in the size of the equipment you'll use.
  • The type of pole barn you choose will also play a role in determining the cost. There are several different types of post frame buildings, from simple storage sheds to complex multi-purpose structures. Choose the type that best suits your needs and budget.
  • The material used for your pole barn will also affect the cost. Metal pole barns are typically more expensive than wood pole barns, but they're also more durable and require less maintenance. Ultimately, the decision of which material to use should be based on your needs and budget.

By keeping these factors in mind, you can ensure that you build within your budget and end up with a pole barn that meets your needs.
