Pole Barn Packages
Few structures are more utilitarian, versatile and budget-friendly than a TimberROOTS brand pole barn from Builders FirstSource. In the rural settings of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, they hold everything from lumber and Christmas trees to harvesters, mechanical shops or cattle. In more urban areas, they serve as warehouses, commercial wholesale and retail spaces, and even public gathering halls. Whatever your pole building’s intended purpose, the experts at your Builders FirstSource locations in Michigan are ready to help, and we take our commitment to you seriously. Our staff guides you from quote to completion. We offer pre-packaged kits or fully-custom designs. We can do full take-offs and we can even complete the installation for you.
The trait that distinguishes pole barns from other structures is the post-based frame. Upright posts or poles bear the building’s weight. The posts can be buried in the ground or secured to a footer or foundation, depending on your application and building site. The result is a building technique that allows large, strong expanses able to handle over-sized doors and windows, for example, while also eliminating the need for interior load-bearing walls that can limit a building’s utility.
This is what makes post-frame buildings so versatile and cost-efficient—lots and lots of space. Plus, we can site them in a wide variety of locations under many different types of conditions. As for utility and function, pole buildings allow for an equally wide variety of styles, and Builders FirstSource has the know-how, plans and materials for all of them to suit Michigan’s unique geography and unpredictable weather conditions—the long summer days as well as the cold, short winter ones.
Start with one of our standard pole barn package plans or kits. They’re a terrific source of ideas and a solid starting point for what really works. Then, you can modify that plan to your specific requirements and needs. If you have something really special in mind, let our experienced building experts take your vision further with specialized custom-build configurator software. Add an office area, or expand an overhang to allow a pull-through. Raise the gambrel roof for additional storage or office space, or incorporate some essential amenities.
With Builders FirstSource, you’ll know that your pole barn or post-frame building is built to the proper engineering standards and specifications—built to stand and built to last. Stop by your nearest Builders FirstSource location, and let our experienced professionals create your pole barn design and give you a price quote you can live with. Builders FirstSource will get you started and see you and your pole building all the way to completion (including installation, if you need).
