Basic package and kit info:
Lumber we use.
Standard post are 6x6 posts. All packages and kits work with 6x6 pressure treated posts unless stated otherwise.
Purlins will be 2x6 yellow pine. The length and quantity will vary barn kit to barn kit.
Steel Truss and Lean-to info.
Our clear span steel trusses will require assembly. Trusses are manufactured in two pieces. Hardware to assemble pieces into one truss included.
Steel trusses, both gable and lean-to's, are designed with welded purlin clips to easily screw during installation.
Standard Steel Truss Barn packages will have a 12' OC post/truss placement unless stated otherwise.
Lean-to's can be added to either side of the pole barn to achieve a raised center isle barn used commonly for livestock.
Through bolts will be supplied to attach trusses to the posts.
Plenty of screws will be included for attaching purlin.
29 gauge, silver galvalume metal sheeting will be used to cover the roof. Silver is the standard color for all packages.
Prior to purchasing your kit we can provide a color chart for you.
Silver galvalume ridge cap with plenty of 1 1/2" roof screws are included.
Options and upgrades.
1.) Please decide upon a width and length of your building. Length must be in increments of 8, 10, or 12 feet.
2.) Decide upon which upgrades you will need for your pole barn.
3.) Contact us with the base kit you are interested in. In this message please include this info with inquiries so we can provide you with an accurate estimate:
State, County, Zip code
Width, Length and Eve Height
Any other options or upgrades
Eve Height Adjustments
Eve heights for our steel truss pole barn kits and packages are standard at 10'. All packages and kits will have a 10' eve unless otherwise specified. Any height of/over 14' will require an upgrade from 6x6 posts to 8x8 posts. The 8x8 posts can be used to achieve an eve height to 14-16''. Width of the pole barn may be a factor in post size as well.
Extreme Wind Upgrades
Engineering a pole barn would require adjustments to our base kits far as the concrete footer is concerned. The kit itself has been engineered to 170mph wind load if you use a 24"x24"x4' footer for posts.
We are able to offer engineering for 43 states.
Please contact us for more information.
Extreme Snow Load Upgrades
We can engineer our steel truss buildings for 43 states. Please contact us for inquiries. Extreme snow load pole barns may increase 30%-70% of the pole barns base price. This is dominantly based on the height of the barn and the psf requirement of your area. Custom trusses with steep rises may be required.
Package vs. Kit
A "Pole Barn Package" indicates that we will provide all lumber, hardware and any other optional upgrade materials "as is". These pieces will need to be cut and marked as we only gather the materials you require.
A "Pole Barn Kit" will be packages when focusing on the steel truss pole barn. The process to construct is far simpler and does not require in depth knowledge of construction to assemble vs. that of a wood truss or conventional pole barn.
Shipping will be unique to each barn and the distance from our shop. Local deliveries can be handled by us for smaller pole barns. For larger Pole Barns, 2 full dedicated 48' flatbeds may be required to ship the pole barn. Pick up is available if you have your own trailer or would like to set up shipping through your own source.
