Pole Barn Homes
Open up your living space with a custom pole building home.
Residential Pole Barns
One thing we love about pole buildings is their exceptional adaptability. Once used solely as farm buildings, pole barn houses are a growing trend in the residential sector.
Also known as “barndominiums” or “shomes,” these pole building homes are popping up all over the country in both rural and suburban areas as more and more people are looking for unique, affordable housing options that allow for open floor plans and quick construction. The flexibility of pole buildings allows for nearly unlimited customization at a much lower price point than traditional homes and the simple nature of pole buildings makes the construction process significantly faster than traditional methods.

We know that when you invest in something, you expect it to last. Quality builds start with quality materials — which is why we only use materials we trust to stand up to the elements for decades to come, including sustainably-sourced Douglas and Hem fir lumber and 100% American-made metal. Over the years, we’ve streamlined our design and construction process, relying on our local knowledge, connections, and experience to provide you with exceptional service and clear communication from start to finish. What's more, we back every build with an industry-leading 10-year contractor warranty.

Because our pole buildings are so adaptable and customizable, there is no standard price for a pole building home.

Depending on how you plan to finish the interior and whether you plan on doing any of the work yourself, we recommend estimating another $60 to $110 per square foot.
