Best Additions for a Pole Barn
Building a pole barn on your property can give you the space you need to shelter your vehicles, tools, equipment, or livestock year-round. Pole barns are available in sizes to suit any need and can be customized with many additional features.
You need to decide how many doors you will need for your pole barn. If you are planning to store several vehicles, it may help to have doors on either end to make it easier to move them around. If you are going to use your pole barn to house livestock, it might help to have doors at both ends so that they can enter and exit freely. The size of the doors you choose will depend on what you plan to store in your pole barn. If you are planning to use it to shelter one or more vehicles, you will need to be sure that you have enough room to drive them in and out with clearance on both sides.
You can also customize your pole barn with windows to allow in natural light and ventilation. You can choose any number of windows in a variety of sizes with or without screens. This is especially important if you are planning to house animals in your pole barn. You can allow in extra ventilation by installing exhaust fans. You can increase natural lighting by installing skylights, and you can use shutters to provide shade.
If you live in a region with cold winters, you might want to insulate your pole barn if you are planning to use it as a work space. This is also a good idea if you are planning to use the building to house livestock so that they will be warm and comfortable in cold weather.
You can choose from several roof options, including gable, gambrel, and raised center. This will depend on things such as the amount of snow you receive in your area during the winter, as well as your style preferences. The color of the roof will affect how much heat it will absorb from the sun.
Other features can enhance the appearance of your pole barn. You can choose from siding in a variety of colors, wainscoting, and cupolas.
Planning the right pole barn will require selecting from both standard and optional features. There are many extras that you can add to enhance the function and appearance of your pole barn.
