What is a Pole Barn?

A conventional stick frame building is what your typical residential home is. There is a concrete foundation that the home then gets built on top of. The foundation is what supports the home. This is different from a pole building that may not have a conventional foundation. In most post frame buildings, the support for the weight of the home comes from the poles. There are a number of reasons to choose a pole building these days. While they may have started out as barns and farming structures, these days you are only limited by your imagination for the use for your pole building. 


Within those categories, you’ll find all types of buildings, including:

  • Little to no foundation cost
  • Built faster
  • More flexibility
  • Less labor intensive
  • Better insulation & air flow


Poles can either driven into the ground or secured above ground. The poles support the trusses and the roof (in conventional homes the walls support the roof). Therefore your pole building home will not have any load-bearing walls, and gives you design freedom with wide an open space to start with. The open floor plan can be adapted to address any requirements that a homeowner will have.

The Cost Of a Pole Barn

Pole Barn & Post-Frame Builder

Pole barns are a type of post-frame construction, highly engineered to combine efficiency and adaptability. The cost of a pole barn building can range anywhere from $30,000-$175,000. Size and customizations are the most important factor when determining the exact price of a pole barn.


Creating a concrete slab for a barn or garage is typically about 20 to 30 percent of your overall cost. Because pole barns don’t require this, you have the option to forego a concrete foundation and save money (Although we can do this upon request).  Pole buildings or Post Frame buildings also require less wood on average to complete than typical buildings. Fewer materials means lower costs.
