What Is a Roof-Only Pole Building?
A roof-only building is what most people call a hay barn, and while storing hay is certainly a common purpose for this kind of building, there’s a whole lot more it can be used for. Sun, rain, snow, and hail take their toll on tractors and other expensive farming machinery, so a freestanding roof-only building is an excellent place to keep these under cover. How about wood? It will last longer and burn much easier when it’s kept dry under a roof. We have tons of ideas for hay barns and other roof-only structures!
How Much Does a Hay Barn Kit Cost?
The hay barn kits we have for sale vary in cost because all of our pole barn kits are completely customizable. We’ll be able to give you an exact quote once you’ve chosen a size for your hay storage building, plus other features, like siding, roofing, and more.
Small, Medium, and Large Roof-Only Buildings
Hay barns are simpler than most building types, so their average prices tend to be lower. Here are some estimated price ranges for each building size.
How Much Does a Small Roof-Only Building Cost?
If you’re planning on getting something small, like a hay storage shed, your pole building will likely cost between $7,000 and $18,000. Of course, these costs are subject to change depending on the exact design of your roof-only building.
How Much Does a Medium Roof-Only Building Cost?
For medium-sized roof-only structures, which you might use to store large machinery, you may find yourself paying between $18,200 and $39,100. Again, the exact price will be quoted once your plans are finalized.
How Much Does a Large Roof-Only Pole Building Cost?
Large and complex roof-only buildings will run you between $36,000 and $88,000, and the price will continue to increase as you increase in size and complexity of your design.
What Does a Roof-Only Pole Building Look Like?
All of our pole building kits can be custom-designed to meet your exact specifications and preferences. Want extra protection on one side of your hay barn? No problem—you can enclose any of the four sides with a siding of your choice. Steel siding is resilient against nature and requires very little upkeep if any.
The endwall trusses and overhangs are also fully trimmed in steel, eliminating the need to replace rotted wood or chipped paint. You can also ask for reflective insulation to prevent condensation issues inside the building. Both 26- and 29-gauge steel are available in 17 colors.
Roof-Only Building Kits Advantages and Disadvantages
What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a Hansen Pole Buildings kit for your hay barn? Read on to learn more.
Roof-Only Building Kit Advantages
Storage is a breeze with a freestanding roof-only building. They’re simple to put together, they allow easy access to your equipment or resources, and they prevent the loss of hay and wood due to rotting and spoilage.
Don’t rely on tarps or flimsy covers that will blow away in a gust of wind to protect your belongings, and definitely don’t count on a standard open-sided agricultural building. Uplift on a poorly constructed open storage building is a serious problem—a windy day can pull these buildings out of the ground and send them flying like a kite to your neighbor’s yard.
A roof-only pole building, on the other hand, will stay put because of poles firmly fixed to the ground with concrete. Hay barns made from Hansen Pole Buildings kits are designed to withstand wind, snow, and seismic loads, and they can always be built according to your local building codes.
Not only that but our wood or metal hay barn structures are completely customizable and affordable. Because all of our kits are designed for DIY assembly, you save on labor and material costs!
Roof-Only Pole Building Disadvantages
While DIY construction may be a major advantage to most, some people would rather not construct their own pole building, and that’s OK! If you’d rather hire a contractor to build your roof-only hay barn for you, we can help you make the arrangements.
How Long Does a Roof-Only Building Take to Build?
Once you finalize your custom design for your roof-only hay barn, we’ll give you a time estimate. All of our estimates are based on the time it would take an unskilled builder to put together your specific building kit.
