Building A Pole Barn
Pole Barn Building Photos
We started building a pole barn on
Here we will
show more views of the construction and the inside framework.
One of most important things you can when working on a project of
this size, keep everything square. No matter what you are
doing, keep it square and double check often.

roof is on and one wall is almost finished, with a lot more siding
to go. As we were installing the siding we used just enough
screws to hold the panels in place. This kept the process
going quickly. Once a wall is sided we use a chalk line to
mark all the rows for the rest of the screws. When all you
have to deal with is driving screws on a purple line, it makes the
task pretty easy.
that's left now is the front wall. This will be the most time
consuming because it includes the large sliding door. It also
includes the miter cuts at the top, the same as the rear wall. Cutting
the miters on the steel panel is a perfect example of measure twice and cut
once. You have just enough panels to do the job because these things are
expensive. There are times a mistake can be used on a shorter section,
but you can not always count on that, be careful.
the pole barn in Missouri, with winter fast approaching, can mean
working in some pretty nasty, cold, windy weather. Once the
roof is on we at least have some place dry to do the rest of the
cutting, if needed. I prefer doing this outdoors, but there
are those times it's nice to be inside with the propane heater
rafters were about to get framed for wall board. Since this
was to be a work area, heat and cooling would be used. By
closing off the top portion of the room it's easier to heat and cool
the rest. The savings could be substantial if this room is
used on a regular basis. The extra storage area created in the
rafters can be useful also.
the ceiling could be installed we ran all the electric and hung all
the lights. This customer went all out and wanted lights and outlets
everywhere. Now is the time to do it, and do it right. It's a bit
expensive but a lot better than wishing you had done it right to
begin with. Now is the time to run all those wires.
