Post Frame Buildings 101
Large wood columns form the foundation of a post frame building. These columns are spaced about 6-8 feet apart across level ground and embedded deeply into the ground onto concrete bases. The columns are connected by sidewalls and topped with roof trusses. Post frame buildings (also called pole barns) are usually simple in design, with only the essential accessories – usually doorways, windows, skylights, and roof.
Older post frame buildings were usually confined to agricultural uses – horse stables, livestock sheds, cattle shelters, barns, tractor storage, tack rooms, etc. However, today’s post frame buildings serve a wide range of uses as commercial, industrial, educational, medical, and even residential structures.
Benefits Of Post Frame Construction
The defining feature of post frame buildings is the broad, open space they offer, due to the lack of interior walls or supporting columns. Their unique design and construction methods provide several advantages over traditional stick framing:
- Flexible Design: With a wide open space to work with, the design possibilities, including room layout, are virtually limitless.
- Durability: Sturdy timbers and a concrete base allow post frame buildings to withstand strong winds and harsh environments better than many other structures.
- Cost-Effectiveness: The simple design of post frame buildings means less materials, faster work, fewer laborers and a lower cost.
- Open Concept: The ability to build a facility with no interruptions from wall to wall is extremely attractive to several industries: car dealerships, livestock storage, fire stations, retail stores, even private homes.
- Easy To Insulate: Posts are spaced 6-8 feet apart, creating large, easy-to-insulate cavities.
