Today I want to talk about some things to consider when choosing the perfect spot for your new pole barn. As one of the top post frame builders in the Midwest, we see a lot of people who make some common mistakes when it comes to this process.

First, let's talk about building placement. You might be tempted to put your pole barn as close to the property line as possible, but that's not always the best idea. Remember that you'll need access to the building for future repairs or additions, so make sure you leave enough room.

Second, consider the climate when choosing a location. If you live in an area with severe weather conditions, you'll want to make sure your pole barn is built to withstand those conditions. For example, if you live in a windy area, it's best to avoid locations that are prone to strong gusts of wind.

Finally, think about the property itself. Is it level? Do you need to do any site prep work before construction can begin? These are important things to consider, because they can affect the cost and timeline of your project.

If you keep these things in mind, you'll be well on your way to choosing the perfect spot for your new pole barn. Thanks for reading!
