Pole Barns

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Anyone have a recommendation for a pole barn company. Got some pricing for larger sheds (12x20 & 12x24) and there so expensive Im wondering if I should just go w/ a pole barn. Would love a 20x24. Any positive, or negative, experiences appreciated.

Morton is pretty much the standard, no??? :squid? Most that I see in my area are Mortons. My father has one, 24' x 50' I think. Had it put in 5 years ago. Nice building, no problems so far. Let me know if you want more details.

I prefer a good pole barn myself, but have ya checked 84 Lumber for garage kits?
I've put a few up over the years, and am gonna put up a 30' x 32' for a bud in a few months.
I cant come close on material prices to stick build what he wants, compared to their prices.
They use trusses, so ya dont get an attic. A trade off

I worked as a pole barn builer in the early 1980's. They are much sturdier than a conventionally framed building and they look way cooler too! Can't help you with a contractor , sorry.

I have two large ones at work, a Morton and a Butler. Both have held up quite nice for over 15 years.

Thanks for the replies.

I googled Morton, Butler, & Jaime. Saw a site for Morton Building Co. but their not local. Nothing for Jaime or Butler. Anyone got a website addey for either???

I sent info to get a price from Conestoga & Fetterville. Consestoga was kinda high, mainly cuz their smallest model is 24x28. I really only want 20x24. Might consider going block also.

Try Cedar Buildings dot com. Prefab kits made in Canada, but very nice. The owner delivers the building and helps you get started, then you can finsih it off yourself.

Morton is kinda of the 'National' name out there. However, they are very easy to design and build yourself. Just have to get creative on setting trusses. We have a bunch of builders in my area that specialize in these due to all the farmers in the area.

I built a 30'x48' with 12' walls for my woodworking shop several years back. I used scissor trusses, which gives me nice high ceilings; I set them with a forklift which worked out fine, and much cheaper than renting a cherry picker or crane. These are a great project for the DIY and a couple buds.
