you have decided it is time to actually get started on that
pole barn you need. You may have driven by or taken the time
to look at a particular building that caught your eye because
of the style or color. However, there are many important
aspects of the building you will need to know, such as what
size and height, before making a decision. Here are some
ideas to help you in deciding what type of building will
best fit your needs.
of all, a location for your pole barn needs to be determined.
The site itself may bring some limitations as to what size
of building you will be able to build. A call to the local
building inspector is very helpful. He will be able to give
you the zoning and code guidelines for your township. This
could save you a lot of time and disappointment if you have
selected a particular building that does not fulfill the
requirements for the location that you have chosen.
will want to know what price range you would like to remain
in and the maximum amount of funds available for this project.
you will be using your building for storing various items
such as travel trailers, motor homes, vehicles, or boats,
make sure you consider the overall size and height as this
will have a bearing on how large of a building you will need.
You may also want to consider future items to be purchased
that will find a "home" in your building. You cannot
build a building too big! A suggestion that many customers
have found helpful is to purchase graph paper and draw the
outline of the proposed building at _" scale. Once you
have completed this, draw to scale the things you are looking
to store in your new building. Cut them out and place them
in the scale drawing. This will help you visualize the finished
storage building and whether it is going to accommodate the
groundwork has now been laid. It is time to email, call or
