If you need a less expensive DIY barn plan, a pole barn plan may be a good fit for you. Pole barns get their name from the poles that make up the framework and act as a foundation for the barn. It is more affordable to build a pole barn since they tend to use fewer materials. The foundation and stability comes from the poles used for the framework and the concrete laid into those holes to keep the poles in place. Pole Barn construction saves money by removing the need for a wood or other foundation.
Because pole barns tend to be relatively simple to construct, you can use our blueprints to help you with your next DIY project. Pole barn plans can be a great way to increase the affordability of your barn, since you won't have to pay contractors for their labor.
