    Default Building Plans For An Open Faced Pole Building?

    Hi:

    Does anyone know where I can get building plans for an open faced pole buliding? Nothing fancy! I want to build something to keep my 6.5 x 16 foot utility trailer in. I invision the front to be 8 foot hight and the back to be 6 foot high. The width would be 10 foot and the length 20 foot. I would use gravel for the floor.

    Thanks:

    Vern From Illinois

    If you look around on MotherEarthNews.com you can probably find something similar to give you some ideas to work from.

    When I was planning my barn I found all kinds of designs at university sites...I think I just Googled "pole building plans" or something. Those buildings are so simple that plans are free from various places.

    Try North Dakota State University Building Plans, all types of plans, even from the '30s.

    Where you from? There's a place near me will give you the construction drawings if you buy the material from them.

    I missed the Illinois in the first post.

    Menards sells them. I'm been talking with midwest manufacturing (they sell post frame buildings via Menards) concerning a project I'm working on.

    I was thinking of APM near Gettysburg PA. They are out of your area, but they sell all sorts of barn kits, and you get plans to build from.

    Check them out , you can see samples of their plans to kind of see how to build it.

    Kit Includes :: APM Pole Building & Garage KIts

    For the size you want, I would put 3 posts on each side, put a header across each side, and rafter sloping from one side to the other. you can also pick up really small trusses very inexpensive.
