Building a garage or shed requires a lot of planning. You may decide that a pole or post frame building is the best design for your barn. Knowing what wood, material or steel to use for the structure is important. You will have to decide whether you are going to do the work yourself or hire a contractor. It is a good idea to look around for examples of other pole and post frame buildings to see what you like. Your garage, shed or barn will serve a purpose and you want to ensure that it is stable to hold up for a long time. To maintain the integrity of the structure, you may want to buy higher quality wood and steel. The following are key terms to familiarize yourself with before starting the project.

    Pole buildings are simple structures built around the use of posts. Barns, storage sheds, garages, houses, and carports are often built using this method. This construction technique does not generally employ the use of framing and studs as in traditional construction. Laminated columns or square posts make up the supporting frame, and materials used can range from metal and steel, to wood and fiberglass. Pole buildings first emerged in the 1920s. Utility poles were used to construct simple buildings like horse stables and barns. Since then, the techniques have become a bit more sophisticated, but the basic premise remains the same. Pole building providers can offer prefab walls, steel siding, prefabricated sheds and garage storage, and structure kits. One may specialize in residential pole buildings, while another may focus more on commercial or industrial projects. Many offer all three types of services, along with agricultural buildings as well. In most cases, customers can design their own floor plans, get free estimates or quotes, apply their own color scheme, and obtain financing. Many pole building providers sell construction kits for handy consumers to put together on their own. These companies may also sell roofing materials and supplies, posts, house plans, and general construction supplies. Services offered may range form sales and service to installation and repair. Companies and individuals who want to build a pole building or have one built for them can consult with area providers. The Internet is a great resource to start with, as is the phone book, or even word of mouth.
