Proper Pole Barn Planning Prevents Problems

Proper Pole Barn Planning Prevents Problems

Planning ahead with your pole barn project will avoid headaches and complications down the road. Some of the problems that most people face when it comes to pole barn construction is incorrect sizing, poor site planning, not deciding on plumbing and electric until the last minute, not being aware of local codes and lastly, not hiring professionals such as Rossbrook Construction to build their pole barn.

Pole Barn Sizing

Pole barns can be built in a variety of sizes to accommodate our customers. When planning out the dimensions of your pole barn it is important to consider what the pole barn will be used for and allow ample room for its intended use.

Too Small

It’s always a good idea to make your pole barn larger than what you think you need. The best way to determine what size pole barn you need is to take some time to thoroughly consider what your pole barn will be used for and how much space you truly need.

Too Big

On the flip side, it’s also possible to have a pole barn that is entirely too large for its intended purpose and for your property. A smart idea is to assess the building site and take accurate measurements of how much space you have available, while also considering what the pole barn will be used for.

Site Planning

Planning an appropriate site for your pole barn is critical. Some major considerations include accessibility, sunlight, airflow and drainage. Rain and weather conditions are also another consideration when it comes to site planning.

Not Hiring Professionals for the Job

Hiring professions to build your pole barn ensures that it’s done properly and that the structure is as safe and stable as possible. Rossbrook Construction employs a highly trained staff of Amish builders and engineers who can create the perfect pole barn to suit your needs. You can count on Rossbrook Construction to build safe, long-lasting pole barns that will serve you for many years to come.

Plumbing and Electrical

Like any other building project, it’s best to iron out all of the specifics before building. This is particularly important when it comes to plumbing and electrical. Planning these things out in advance saves time and the extra work involved with having to add these things in at the last minute.

Not Being Aware of Local Codes

Local building codes are put into place for safety reasons. As a homeowner, it’s always a good idea to educate yourself on your local municipality’s codes.

Safety Concerns

Electrical codes aim to reduce risk and promote safe practices, but wiring is complex and dangerous. Potential issues that can arise from faulty wiring can range from power loss to major issues like fires or electrocution.

Resale Issues

When selling your property, homebuyers often schedule inspections, which may reveal code violations. These code violations do not only pertain to your home but also extend to other structures on your property, such as pole barns. Ensuring that your pole barn is up to code will avoid any potential problems when you go to sell your property.
