How much does that pole barn cost? Can’t you just give me a number? That’s a very common and realistic question we hear at FBi Buildings almost daily. Our customers see a farm shop they fell in love with on Facebook, or a unique pole barn home caught their attention instead. Intrigued by the overall pole barn design, they’re quick to call into the office with the famous question, “What’s the cost of that pole barn?”
Have you considered building a new farm shop or hobby barn? Or you've already received quotes from post-frame builders and were surprised by the total cost, so you decided to hold off on your project until prices dropped. Our rational thinking tells us that pole barn prices will come down, but we are still determining if costs will return to where they once were; others might doubt if that will ever happen.
The most common exterior siding in post-frame construction is pre-painted, corrugated steel panels. These panels help form the walls and roof of the typical post-frame building and ultimately make up a large portion of the exterior. Customers also have the option to include an interior steel liner package that can be installed on either the walls or ceiling of their pole barn. This is easily the most popular finishing option that our customers choose. The steel liner package helps enhance the appearance of your pole barn, giving the interior a more finished look.
Have you been tossing around the idea of extra storage for your cars, hobby toys, or even miscellaneous items? Maybe your home has an attached garage, but you’re considering building a pole barn garage because you know you’ll need the extra space down the road (especially if you have more than one driver in your house).
If you invest your money in a new pole barn, you’ll have to ensure it’s engineered to handle various stresses and door placements. For instance, your pole barn will inevitably encounter inclement weather (e.g., rain, snow, and wind). Do you know if your pole barn builder uses your location's designated snow and wind load ratings?
Have you been tossing around the idea of building a new farm shop or hobby barn? Or maybe you’ve already received quotes from post-frame builders and were surprised by the total cost, so you decided to hold off on your project until prices went down. That seems like the logical thing to do, right? Maybe.
