Amish pole barns offer the homeowner a wide array of benefits from the environment, economy, and quality of the house. The three main common construction factors between Amish, Log barns, and Steel pole barns are that they are all built without nails, glues, or screws.

The Basics of Pole Barns

Pole barns are built with posts and beams, which are also known as columns and rafters. This type of structure is most often used for agricultural purposes, such as storing hay or grain, but it can also be used for other purposes, such as a workshop or garage. Pole barns are similar to traditional barns because they are made out of wood, and they have pitched roofs. However, unlike traditional barns, they do not have a concrete foundation, and they are not made out of stone or brick.

Amish Pole Barn Construction

The process of building a pole barn begins with placing the posts into the ground in an organized pattern so that they form a rectangle or square shape. The posts should be spaced far enough apart so that they do not touch each other when viewed from above. Once the posts are set in place, beams are attached to them at equal intervals along their length using bolts and nuts. The beams will support another set of crossbeams at regular intervals along their length. These crossbeams will be attached to both sides of each beam using bolts and nuts on either side of where they meet the post below them so that there is no gap between them when viewed from above.

Finding the Right Amish Pole Barn Contractor

The first step to finding the right pole barn contractor. You want to find a contractor that has experience dealing with Amish pole barns. Asking the pole barn contractor for references and talking to previous customers is the best way to do this. You can also check with local building codes to see if there is any additional information that your contractor might need to know. 

Once you've found a good contractor, it's important to work with them throughout the entire process of building your pole barn. This will help ensure that your new structure is built correctly, which will save you money in the long run.

With an Amish-built pole barn, you get convenience, quality, and peace of mind. Contact an Amish pole barn construction contractor to start discussing the options to have a barn built for your property.

About Me
More Than Concrete

Concrete has been an incredibly popular construction material for centuries, and maybe even millennia. The ancient Romans even used a form of concrete to make dams and aqueducts! When we learned this fact, we just had to share it. In fact, that happens a lot when we learn new construction facts and information. That's why we created this blog — so we have a convenient place to share! Since the construction and contracting industry is so vast, we come across new material all of the time. Some of it is about specific types of construction, and other facts are more generalized. But we share it all!
