Post frame storage buildings are growing in popularity and for good reason. They combine efficiency,
flexibility, durability, and affordability. They are also low maintenance, have a quick construction time,
and lower construction costs.
Below is a list of different types of post frame storage buildings have many options that are
good for residential, agricultural, and commercial needs:
- Open sided – One of the most versatile options. These buildings vary in shape, size, height, and
materials used. They offer convenience and flexibility in entry into the building. If storage for
heavy use equipment is your main priority, open sided buildings are a great option since you
won’t have to open/close doors to move your machinery in and out.
- Lean-to – Another great way to get the most out of your post-frame building. A lean-to can
provide the space you need for items you want to keep out of the weather but don’t necessarily
need to have inside the main part of your building. Open lean-to’s are popular for machinery
storage because of the additional space they offer with easy access from all sides.
- Multi-unit – A multi-unit storage building may be, at its heart, a great big rectangle with a roof
over top, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. You can consider both aesthetic and
functional options in the design phase. For example, cupolas or dormers can be added to the
roof to help ventilate the interior while providing visual interest. The pitch of the roof itself can
be altered, as can the style and shape of the roll-up doors.
- Garages – You can add a post frame garage to your home or build it as a stand-alone to instantly
maximize your storage potential. It creates storage for your large tools, machinery, or you can
use it as extra workspace. There are many options when it comes to design, size, style, and cost.
- Agricultural – post frame structures provide a durable and cost-effective solution for your
farming and agricultural needs. Use these buildings to house livestock, hay, or
equipment/machinery. Climate-controlled or insulated buildings are valuable options that are
also energy-efficient year-round.
- Commercial – Because post frame buildings are an affordable alternative to conventional
construction, they are an excellent building type for manufacturing, warehouses, office spaces,
or retail. The trusses are engineered to transfer the ceiling weight to the posts, so there are no
load-bearing walls. This allows for more open space inside your building. Also, the savings over a
brick-and-mortar building, which requires more load-bearing posts or walls within similarly sized
areas, can be significant.
