What Does an Animal Confinement Pole Building Look Like?

If you can dream it, we can design it! Building an animal pole barn doesn't have to be restrictive in any way. Your animal barn design can have the look and feel of a gable-style barn, or it can be something unique and original. Hipped roofs, single slopes, monitors, and of course the ever-popular gambrel style (traditional barn design) are just a few of the custom barn packages available. We want to be sure the barn design you have in mind is the right fit for you.

Although steel is probably the most durable material, and the easiest to maintain for roofing and siding, your barn package can include other sidings as well: T1-11, board and batten, vinyl, or sheeted with OSB for the application of other sidings such as brick or stucco. Besides steel, other roofing options include standard shingles, architectural shingles, tile, and standing seam steel.
