Benefits of Pole Barn Farm Storage Buildings

Are you looking to get some equipment storage for your farm? There are a lot of benefits to using a pole barn or pole building for this agriculture equipment storage. Check out some of these benefits below.

  • Equipment Safety – Keep your equipment safe and secure by storing it in a durable and high-quality storage building. You can protect your investments and give yourself peace of mind when you have a secure place to store farm equipment.
  • Protect Equipment from Weather – Your farm equipment and machinery are large investments. You can extend the life of that investment by protecting your equipment from the elements. Rain, sleet, snow, and other weather can impact your equipment and its ability to work for you. There is no need for that additional wear and tear if you have an equipment shed for your ag machinery.
  • Design Flexibility – A pole barn shed is a great option for farm equipment and more because it offers you flexibility and customization when it comes to design. You can customize the size and structure to your specific needs and uses. Some people want a simple storage shed for all types of tools and equipment. Others want a workshop space as a part of their shed so that they can work on projects small and large. You have the option to customize the interior and exterior of this type of building to get exactly what you are looking for from equipment storage and beyond.
  • High-Quality Construction – When it comes to any type of building, you want to be sure it will be durable and long-lasting. At Greiner, we make sure our equipment storage sheds stand the test of time by using only high-quality materials and construction methods. For example, we offer products like Kynar metal roofing and siding; this is high-strength, 26-gauge steel with energy preserving paint that can hold up to the elements and reduce heat levels. We also use machine-stress rated lumber, high-quality windows and doors, and other durable and weather-resistant materials.

As you can see, a pole barn equipment shed can be a great option. However, there are some things to think about when you are looking into this type of machine shed.

Important Considerations with Farm Equipment Sheds

Before you get too far into planning for your farm storage shed, there are some questions to ask yourself and things to think about. Check out some important considerations below, and if you have any questions, you can reach out to us at Greiner.

  • Doors and Windows – You will also want to think about doors and windows on your farm shed. Some people create open-sided sheds, which is a possible option, but there are also a lot of great doors specifically suited to equipment storage. You can find overhead, hydraulic, slider, and bi-fold doors for your farm shed. Sliders use a roller and track system and are a large door at a very affordable price. Hydraulic doors are becoming more popular because they can seal very tightly and keep a storage area more insulated. The exact choice depends on what your specific needs are.
  • Custom Design Needs – Do you have any need for a custom design? Are you looking to have a workshop or office in your equipment storage building? Do you want a particular layout or specific materials? Custom designs are an advantage of pole building equipment sheds, so think about whether or not you have specific needs for custom design.

These are just a few different factors to consider when you are thinking about your farm equipment storage solution. We can discuss further considerations with you, as well as sharing some different equipment shed design ideas when you reach out to us.

 

  • Size – As mentioned above, one of the benefits of a pole barn machine shed is that it is customizable to your needs. This means you can look into small machine shed plans or a large farm storage building. You have to think about your current needs for storage, and you will want to consider how those needs may change or grow over time.
  • Location – What is the best location for equipment storage on your farm? This is an important thing to think about. Consider the specific equipment you’ll be using and the location that is most beneficial for its use.
  • Doors and Windows – You will also want to think about doors and windows on your farm shed. Some people create open-sided sheds, which is a possible option, but there are also a lot of great doors specifically suited to equipment storage. You can find overhead, hydraulic, slider, and bi-fold doors for your farm shed. Sliders use a roller and track system and are a large door at a very affordable price. Hydraulic doors are becoming more popular because they can seal very tightly and keep a storage area more insulated. The exact choice depends on what your specific needs are.
  • Custom Design Needs – Do you have any need for a custom design? Are you looking to have a workshop or office in your equipment storage building? Do you want a particular layout or specific materials? Custom designs are an advantage of pole building equipment sheds, so think about whether or not you have specific needs for custom design.

These are just a few different factors to consider when you are thinking about your farm equipment storage solution. We can discuss further considerations with you, as well as sharing some different equipment shed design ideas when you reach out to us.
