Is Your Land Right for a Pole Barn?
Before you build a pole barn on your property, you will need to choose a site carefully and do some prep work. This will help you ensure that your construction project will be successful and that your pole barn will be secure.
The first thing to consider is the size of the area you will need. You have to find an area that is large enough for the footprint of the pole barn. It should be a place that is easily accessible by a driveway or road that can be traveled even in bad weather.
The location that you choose should be clear of trees, shrubs, and roots that could get in the way. If the site is not clear, you will need to remove all of those materials before you can begin to build.
Choose a site that is as level as possible. If you do not have a large enough area that is level on your property, you may need to move dirt to even it out.
Your chosen site should have good drainage. Water should be able to flow away from your pole barn to prevent it from flooding in heavy rain or when snow melts in the spring.
You may want to put gravel or stone on your site if you don’t have it there already. This can be done before or after you build your pole barn.
Before you dig, be sure to contact your local authorities to make sure there are no underground utility lines on your site. You can get this information in many areas by calling 811.
Choosing the right location and preparing the land can ensure the success of your pole barn. Take the time to evaluate your property, find the most appropriate site, and do some preparation before you build.
