The pole barn designs of your choosing depends on your specific situation and needs. Whatever your personal situation is, there are many different pole barn designs to choose from.
First, what will the barn be used for? Will it be used for storing materials such as hay, or will it be used as an animal shelter, such as a horse stable?
Some folks store their hay outside the barn beneath. If you choose to do this, then you will need an extended ‘porch’ area with no exterior wall. If you choose to store materials inside, then you will need this exterior wall.
If the barn will be housing animals, you need to decide how many stalls you will need. You may only have one or two horses now, but do you think you will want more in the future?
For some folks, this barn will be multi-use. You may decide that you need an extension for a carport. If so, this will need to be calculated into your budget.
Others may be using the barn as a temporary or permanent residence. There are many 2-story pole barn plans available that will guide you step by step into creating a loft apartment on the second story.
The most important item is getting a good set of pole barn blueprints. There are many free pole barn plans online, but the average person would have a very hard time completing their project with these. They are usually very hard to read and are lacking two very important items, the materials list and cut sheet.
Starting your project off with a cut sheet and a materials list will ensure that your pole barn designs are constructed on budget with little headaches. These two items are only included with professionally done barn blueprints.
