What Are Pole Barn Garage Kits?
A pole barn garage kit is a simple way to increase your storage space. Most standard two-car garages don’t have enough space to store multiple vehicles and other household or hobby-related items at once.
A garage building kit allows you to construct your own residential pole building efficiently and inexpensively. You’ll design the garage you want, then we’ll send you the materials to put it together. Our kits are made so that anyone can build their garages themselves, whether or not they have prior construction experience.
Our residential garage kits come with tons of high-quality standard features, but you can also purchase add-ons to customize your pole building.Get A Free Quote!

Consider how much space you need before deciding on a garage kit package and price. It’s not unusual for families to have more than one pole barn garage. You might have one to use your vehicles, one just for storage, and one for a workshop, art studio, or “man cave.” You’re only limited by your space, budget, and imagination.

What Do Garage Pole Barns Look Like on the Inside?
What your garage pole barn looks like on the inside will depend on the size of your building and the features you want to include. Things like doors, windows, insulation, and more will affect the look of the interior of your garage. In general, though, garage pole buildings offer a large, clear space where you can park cars, add tables and benches, or store equipment.
How Do Wooden Garage Pole Barn Differ From Steel-Frame Buildings?
Steel-frame buildings get their support from large steel frames that can be spaced up to 30 feet apart. They require large concrete footings and carefully placed anchor bolts. Steel buildings are typically taller than pole barns and much more expensive when you factor in the concrete and machinery needed to construct them.
Pole buildings, by contrast, are low-cost and easy to construct. Our residential pole barn home concepts are designed to create the largest possible building using the least materials. Our garage building kits use widely spaced pressure-preservative-treated posts for the main vertical supports, embedded in the ground with a small amount of concrete around them. All of our pole buildings are modular so that you can easily vary the length of your building.

Garage Pole Barn Disadvantages
Construction Size Limitation
There are very few disadvantages when it comes to using one of our residential pole building kits. Your size options are somewhat more limited, however. Pole buildings are meant to be low-rise buildings, often one story, although two-story pole buildings are definitely possible. If you need a building that’s any higher than that, a pole building probably isn’t the best solution.
Pole buildings are perfect for things like garages, workshops, barns, storage spaces, and residential barn homes.

The length of time it takes to build a pole barn garage depends on the building’s size and complexity as well as your level of skill as a builder.
