Eve heights for our steel truss pole barn kits are standard at 10'. Upgrades to the eave height may require larger posts. This largely depends on the eave height, windload and snow load of the pole barn.
Engineering a high wind load pole barn would require adjustments to our base kits. Windload Engineering capable up to 165.
Reference: A standard kit with 10' eave and 10'OC post placement will engineer up to 150mph without adjustment.
We are able to offer engineering for 39 states. Engineering Availability.

We can engineer our steel truss buildings for 39 states. Please contact us for inquiries. Extreme snow load pole barns may increase 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.
Shipping will be unique to each barn and the distance from our shop. Local deliveries can be handled by us for smaller pole barns. Rate is $1.50 per loaded mile up to a 200 mile radius. Rate is $2.00/mi beyond 200 miles.
Example: A 250 mile delivery will be charded $2.00 every mile for 250 miles.
For larger Pole Barns (extremely massive or very large with enclosure materials), 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.
For long distance hauls less than a 48' flatbed requirement, UShip (an online auction broker) seems to be a popular route for previous customers. $3 per loaded mile if we ship over 1000 miles cross country.
Pole Barn and delivery to be paid in full prior to long distance deliveries.
