Residential pole buildings have come into vogue in the past few years. Why? Pole barn houses now have the look and feel of a modern, sleek home, without the metal home look. Residential pole buildings were traditionally plain and boring in design. Not anymore!

At first glance, one of the most enticing features of a post frame home is the affordability. Costs to build pole barn houses are often substantially less than other construction methods. Even with added features such as wainscot, overhangs and decorative windows or doors, dollars spent on a pole barn home typically will be less. Why are the costs of pole barn homes less you ask? Because pole building houses require less material to construct as supporting poles are commonly placed 10' to 12' apart.
Durability and ease of maintenance are two more “pluses” for choosing a residential steel sided pole building. Your home will require little upkeep, having no exposed wood to require scraping and repainting, or even worse, replacing if it warps and rots. Roofing and siding on residential metal buildings is virtually maintenance free, no shingles to replace or siding to paint!
