Pole Barn Plans

Available Engineer Stamped Nationwide

Our pole barn plans are complete, easy to follow, and are accompanied by how-to tips and free technical support. Nothing is left to chance as everything needed to build the structure are included in our pole building plans including the quantity of fasteners to use in every connection (something offered only with engineer stamped plans by the competition).

Here is a sample of the post plan offered with our industry leading pole barn plans. It provides the post spacing for the sidewalls and endwalls, post embedment technique to be utilized and post orientation.

Pole Barn Plan Details

Notice that the plan measures each post spacing center to center except for the corner posts. Also the corner post spacing is 1 1/2″ less than the overall building dimension to leave room for the girts to be nailed around the building perimeter.

Also included are post orientation images to aid in setting your posts on the gable endwalls and eave sidewalls. 6×6’s are square so they aren’t shown but if your building includes 4×6 posts or laminated posts this is the orientation required for post setting.

The images at the top show the post embedment technique utlitized and also the uplift cleats used to ensure your building doesn’t get jacked later on by a windstorm.

Another drawing included in all pole building plans would be the bearing wall cross section. This drawing provides the necessary information for a permitting office to quickly see how the building will be constructed based upon the load requirements for the building site location.

For the DIY builder it provides a snapshot of the detailed drawings to follow that describe the exact length and fastening requirements at each connection point. The drawing can be magnified to see the trim pieces utilized for overhang and every detail to be included in the building based upon the plan.

We provide construction photos and free technical support for first time builders that need a little more explanation or just want to make sure they build their pole building exactly to specification.

Leaving nothing to chance we provide the exact number of nails for each connection point. Truss supports and headers for large openings are calculated and each includes the exact number of ring shank nails to support the loading of the building based upon the span, opening width, opening location, number of plys, and snow load.

    Good day.
    I’m a class ‘A’ contractor and have an order for a residential 2 story 2 car garage with a framed in work shop. Due to the customers budget we intend to build a pole barn. The county requires stamped engineering drawings (Fauquier County Va.) because it is residential, not agricultural.

    I can provide the layout, can you provide the engineering drawings?

    Basic size and layoutis; 32′ x 40′. Gable end doors. (2) 12′ wide bays for the garage .From the right corner (looking at the building), a 10w x 12h garage door, to the left of that, a 8′ x 8′ garage door. To the left of that, a 16′ (by 32′) work shop with a 3/0 entry door. The ceiling height will be 8′ tall.

    The work shop will be framed and have stairs that allow access to the floor above the work shop. Kind of like a loft.

    2 windows in the back gable wall of the garage (1) per bay. And (2) windows centered on each eve wall for the first floor, and a second window on the 2nd story only above the workshop.

    1′ soffit on the back and eves, 2′ soffit on the front gable end (above all of the doors).

    The building will be metal sided and roofed.

    Can you help?

    I am looking for stamped plans as well. My county requires them as I would like to go the DIY route. It would be an agricultural barn being used for housing animals. 50x30x14 (LxWxH). Thanks in advance. Any info is greatly appreciated.

      Matt, engineer stamped plans (inlcuded in the building package) cost $600 for garage and farm buildings. Residential and commercial buildings are $900. It takes about 2 weeks to get the engineered prints completed to start the permitting process. Let us know if we can help.
