Why Choose Pole Barn Construction in Portland?
Pole barns from Hansen Pole Buildings are affordable, easy to construct, and environmentally friendly. We focus on minimizing the environmental impact of every building we produce by using sustainable design practices and the most efficient materials. A Portland pole barn is the right choice when you need to construct a durable agricultural, commercial, or residential building at a reasonable price.
Post-frame homes are becoming increasingly popular, and a pole barn can be a great option if you’ve been dreaming of building your own hunting lodge, lake house, or cabin in the woods. A small Portland pole barn could also make a great backyard office. Eliminate your commute and give yourself a dedicated professional space at home with a Hansen pole building.
While the Portland metro area may not have many agricultural buildings, you don’t have to go far outside of the city to start finding farms, wineries, and horse boarding facilities. The wide open spaces of rural Oregon lend themselves to pole building construction. If you live outside Portland and want to add a farm storage facility, workshop, machinery shed, horse barn, or covered riding arena to your property, contact Hansen Pole Buildings.
With several state-level incentives available for business owners in Oregon, Portland is a great city for the bootstrap entrepreneur. If you’ve started a business in Portland and need an office, warehouse, or storefront, a pole building can help you get the space you need while keeping your overhead low. Just make sure you’re complying with local zoning codes—at Hansen Pole, we can work with you to custom-design a structure that meets zoning and building requirements.
Weather and Building Code Considerations for the Portland Area
Although Portland is known for its frequent misting rain, the city also has relatively mild seasons and very few extreme weather events, making it a great place for pole buildings. However, while the weather may not be a huge concern, there are some building codes you’ll need to take into consideration:
• If you’re adding a garage, shed, or accessory structure to your property, you’ll need a building permit.
• If you live on a farm and are building an agricultural structure, your building will be exempt from state structural building codes. However, you’ll still need to adhere to local zoning codes, and you’ll need electrical, plumbing, and mechanical building permits if you install any of these systems.
• For all single-story prefabricated buildings, the minimum footing embedment is 12 inches.
• Earth anchors in pre-fabricated buildings need to be proof load tested to ensure they can stand up to high winds and seismic events.
This is not a complete list of building code considerations for Portland pole buildings. You should contact your local building department for more information about requirements for your planned project.
Our pole barn kits come with detailed step-by-step instructions so that you can construct the building yourself. However, if you’d rather leave it to the professionals, you can always work with your favorite contractor.
