This discussion centers around buildings without a ceiling (exposed rafters) and insulation following the roof-line.
In the south attics are vented to flush heat. However, heat transfer in an attic comes mainly from radiation. Venting an attic doesn’t flush radiation effectively at all (no ceiling – insulation follows roof-line).
If your plans include outdoor storage of pole barn kits for more than a couple of weeks you run a high risk of storage corrosion, mold and condensation related issues.
Air temperature, humidity and other factors impact storage concerns so these factors should be considered to make sure you don’t have a terrible surprise when opening bundles and beginning construction.
So, what is the difference between a pole barn and a pole building?
The most accurate description of both is post frame construction or post frame buildings but the pole barn and pole building acronyms both really mean the same thing. Regionally one term is preferred over the other.
For arguments sake, lets say pole barns are farm buildings or uninhabited garages or equipment storage buildings. Then pole buildings are structures that are inhabited or has some commercial use involving the public or residential purposes.
Then we can identify the distinct differences we offer for those two different applications and throw a name on both of them!
