A pole barn garage is a lot easier to put together than any other type of wooden structure. You can build them very quickly and you don’t need a high degree of building knowledge. Given that manufacturers make very detailed instructions, many people decide to make them themselves.


The best part about building a pole barn garage is that they are extremely adaptable. That is, you can adjust them in any way that suits your needs.

Here are some pole barn garage tips for building that are useful to consider before actually starting.


Plan and Design Your Pole Barn Garage

Before starting you need to choose a flat area for building your barn garage. And examine the type of soil that exists in that area. When that is checked, think of the dimensions you need.


The size of your pole barn garage should be determined by how you intend to use it. For example, are you building a garage for one vehicle or more? Want to have a workshop area in the garage or not?


You need to think about insulating a pole building too. Do you need just roof insulation or plan to insulate the whole garage? It’s a good idea to begin by drawing a simple rectangle and sketching items inside it. Make a list of all things you’ll need before starting to build your garage.


Door Options

Keep in mind that selecting the type of door you want to use is a big decision. There are two types of doors: sliding doors and overhead doors. Each of them has its own set of advantages, disadvantages, and other factors to consider.


Sliding doors are more traditional. They are still popular today due to the variety of benefits they provide. Adding a sliding door to your barn is less expensive and long-lasting but they are mostly manual.


On the other hand, overhead doors are commonly built to be used with automatic door openers. The other big plus is that insulated overhead doors are easy to find for the garage, which means better temperature control.


Windows & Ventilation

When you determine the general size and layout of your garage, the next thing is to think about ventilation. If it’s done right it will make your time in the barn more enjoyable.


If you want an attic space with a flat ceiling, then consider installing a vented ridge and soffit vent during the construction process. This will keep your airflow and moisture at the right levels in every season.


Think of placing your windows and doors in a way that will maximize your interior space. But also going to look visually balanced on the outside. Keep in mind that if your space will not be climate-controlled, it will contribute to a cross breeze.


Flooring & Drainage

A pole barn garage typically has a concrete floor to provide a better working surface and to keep things tidy. Keep these suggestions in mind as you collaborate with your flooring contractor to ensure a high-quality product and proper drainage.


Make sure you prepare your site, and you will save money when it comes time to pour your concrete floor. Remove all sod, bring in sand fill, finish a rough grade so the area is somewhat smooth. Also, make sure there are several access points.


When you think of building a pole barn garage consider the possibilities beyond the near future. Pole barns are much easier to expand than other types of structures. Your requirements may change – and grow. Plan to allow extra space around your building.
