Why is Pole Barn Living a Good Thing?
You may have never heard of a pole barn house, let alone thought of it as an option for your next new home. But we are here to tell you that you should consider it. Welcome to the great new world of pole barn living! People here barn home or barn house and immediately think of a traditional barn. We promise you (as you can easily see in the photos below) pole barn homes are NOT like living in a barn.
Pole barns as an option for residential living bring many benefits to the table. They can be a cheaper option than traditional wood frame homes. They are easily adaptable to fit the design ideas or needs of the owner. Pole barn homes are easier to insulate than traditional homes as well. Another great factor is that build time can be trimmed down from traditional home build times.
As we head into winter another great factor to mention is that a pole barn can be very energy efficient. Post frame buildings have fewer thermal breaks than you might find in more traditional wood frame or steel frame buildings.
In the past you might consider a post frame building for utility solutions, shelter for RVs or cars, shops, agricultural solutions, even office buildings. But as you see in the gallery below you can do beautiful things with a pole barn / post frame building for residential living. The only thing that can hold you back is your imagination.
