First, what is a pole barn?

It is originally a technique for quick constructions of sturdy and reliable structures. Basically, it is a type of post-frame construction combining efficiency and adaptability. By history, the term “pole barn” originates from the agricultural practices in 1930s when farmers built new buildings from cost-efficient materials- recycled telephone poles- during the Great Depression. It has eventually evolved to a shorter term of “pole barns” from the original “telephone pole barns”.

By its name, buildings are constructed with poles that are buried in the ground or anchored to a concrete slab to provide stability keeping braces unnecessary. Walls are optional as it may also be open shelters, or may be designed with shear walls. These buildings commonly use metal roofing while the flooring may just be soil, wood, or concrete.

Building a pole barn will definitely add value to your home because they are multi-purpose. The best nature of pole barns is its adaptability. Whatever you have used your pole barn for, you or the next owner can easily turn it into something else that their lifestyle requires. Your garage now could easily be turned into a workshop, man-cave, or a guest house.

Expanding your property also adds value to your home, whether you decide to sell it, or for your own living space. Over time that you reside in your pole barn, the more you will need more space, either for storage, a new area for relaxation, or for your growing family. Outbuilding your property to accommodate your lifestyle needs is how you save against moving expenses, and definitely adds value to your property if you decide to sell it.
