Post frame buildings, also known as pole barns, are built using square posts for vertical structural support and posts for horizontal reinforcement. Post frame construction is the process used to build a pole barn structure and is an ideal method for constructing many building types, such as:
- Airplane hangars
- Vacation homes
- Retail buildings
- RV shelters
- And more
Post frame buildings are an outstanding choice that is energy-efficient, cost-effective and incredibly strong and resilient. Customers in the Minot, ND, area can learn more by calling Frueh Construction at 701-693-5765.
Post Frame Building Benefits
Post frame building is an exceptional construction option that offers various benefits over conventionally framed, stick built structures. Some of the pluses of post frame building include:
- Cost effective: Post frame-built pole barn structures are constructed without a conventional concrete foundation, which eradicates the significant costs of excavating and pouring a foundation. This type of building also saves money in relation to truss and framing.
- Stable: A correctly designed and constructed pole building can withstand extreme weather conditions that would destroy a conventional structure. Additionally, pole-supported buildings typically will not collapse in a fire like a conventional wood framing building on a foundation.
- Energy efficient: Post frame structures have fewer thermal breaks compared with buildings that are constructed conventionally. Posts on 8-foot centers or greater can be much more effectively insulated than stick frame buildings that have studs 16 inches or 24 inches on center.
- Adaptable: When a building has a conventional foundation, the building site must be leveled if it isn’t flat, requiring earth to be moved and the site to be graded. Many prime building sites are abandoned because of excavation issues, but a post frame building needs much less site preparation and can be built in spite of contours in the land, in some cases.
