Exciting times, I hope to build another pole barn in the next few years.
I enjoy seeing other people’s builds as they progress, what are the details on yours?

Thanks,
Mike

Thanks Mike. It’s as big as the budget allows. 27x30 with 12’8” to the bottom of the rafters. 10x10 overhead door with a man door next to it under an 8X10 covered porch. Porch and barn floor will be 4” concrete, 4000psi, fiber mesh and metal wire reinforcement. Underside of roof is coated to prevent condensation and provide some sound deadening. Running 100 amp service to barn

Sounds well thought out, I went with 8’ ceiling height and regular 7’x9’ garage doors on my garage/pole building, still regret both. I plan to go at least 12’ ceiling for a lift and definitely larger door openings on the next build. First building is 24’x40’ still debating L‘ X W ‘ on the next one.
Thanks,

Mike

I wanted 30x40 but with the crazy prices, had to downsize. The other dimensions were from my BIL’s barn. I liked the height for a lift and we marked out the size on his floor and moved some equipment around to verify space and get comfortable with the overall dimensions.

That’s my biggest issue with the barn build process. Not a lot of places to go and walk through to get comfortable with size as well as physical construction. I could have gone with a cheaper company but in the end I would have had to add in pad prep, concrete and electrical work so costs would have been the same. I watched this company build my BIL’s barn and been able to see it age. No issues with the structure or prep after 10 yrs.
