Pole Barn Kits in Alabama

Pole barns are a signature trait on any farm; everyone pictures the red barn with the rustyold tractor out front with a horse grazing in the pasture behind it. This may sound a bit far from reality but with the manufacturing of pole barn kits this can happen in less time than you may think. Some companies provide very in-depth and detailed plans to help anyone regardless of skill level. Since you are in control of the build, you have the ability to tackle whichever task you feel comfortable doing and hiring out the ones you don’t. Some choose to hire out someone to pour the concrete slab, then complete the barn build themselves. Others pay someone to build the whole pole barn but decide that they want to put the exterior walls on.

The Beauty of the pole barn kit is that you have the ability to build a massive structure on your property that is for the purpose of “agriculture” but can be turned into many other things. Pole barn kits can be built for storing equipment at floor level while building nice living quarters within the trusses. I have seen some decked out living quarters that were made into insane man caves and a man cave cannot be located in a better place than above all your toys. The great thing about the design of a pole barn kit is that once the outside structure is made, the internal framing can be designed with unlimited possibilities. Having a structure on my property that can allow me to have horse stalls, equipment storage, a man cave, gym, small mechanic shop, and a place to sleep, all under the same roof is amazing and I cannot think of a better project to get started on.

I hope your imagination goes as crazy as mine when I think about all the possibilities that are available when you own a pole barn. This website was created to help provide a resource to the pole barn kit purchaser, owner, or builder that can use ideas, insight, and motivation to tackle their build.

 

 

How much do Alabama pole barn kits cost?

Pole barn kits can get complicated when you start talking about the finished cost. Things to consider in the budget of a pole barn kit project should include things like the foundation. The foundation is a cost that is usually made outside of the pole barn kit purchase. Permits can also run a small fee that is often overlooked. All states vary on what type of requirements and fees are associated when trying to get a permit. If you call your local building department, they will provide you with application fees and requirements. The cost of lumber also plays a huge role in the overall price of a pole barn kit but you can get an exact quote that will be valid for a set period of time. In addition, there are many variations to different pole barns based on a particular persons need. Some people prefer windows, while other don’t. Small additions and preferences will all factor into your final price. These are just a few things that can sneak up on you when you start to budget for your pole barn. I can show you a few examples on prices to give you an idea of what you will be looking at depending on the size of structure you want. Read more…

Some counties may not require a building permit at all and the only way to know is by contacting your building department.

Pole barn trusses are used in a barn structure, usually for an agricultural purpose, or for a home storage and/or workshop building. Normally, they have a metal roofing system supported by purlins between trusses, instead of plywood and shingles, like residential construction.
