Horse Barn Pole Building Disadvantages

Construction Size Limitation

If you're looking for a multi-story horse barn (for extra storage space, for example), you may want to look into a more conventional building method. While pole barns are perfect for 1-2 story structures, anything higher than that likely isn't doable with a pole barn kit.

DIY Construction

While the ability to construct your own pole barn structure is a major advantage for most, not everyone wants to put a building together themselves. However, you can still order a Hansen Pole Building horse barn kit and hire a contractor to put it together for you.

How Long Does a Horse Barn Pole Building Take to Build?

The amount of time your horse barn will take to build ultimately depends on the size and customizations you choose.
