Post Frame Buildings

Post Frame Construction

Post frame construction is the building process used for creating what are frequently referred to as pole barns. Post frame is the construction method, while the pole barn is just one result.

Today we should no longer think of post frame construction as a simple, rectangular metal-roofed structure sitting behind a farmhouse. Post frame buildings offer a wide range of designs that work well in any environment.

Post frame construction has evolved to be much more than a barn-building method. Quicker, less expensive and more capable of withstanding harsh conditions, post-frame has become a preferred solution for buildings other than agricultural or barn-type structures. Municipal buildings, fire stations, schools, clinics and even attractive homes are built using this method of construction.

Wall boards on a post frame building are called girts. Girts are installed horizontally and attached to posts. This allows the load to be transferred to poles. This is main reason pole buildings do not need a traditional foundation, which result in substantial cost savings.

Post Frame Purlins

Roof Purlins

Deep South Buildings and Garages

Purlins are horizontal beams that span between each of the trusses to provide framing for sheathing material attachment. Their responsibility is to resist gravity and resist uplifting wind loads. Not only do purlins do all of this, but they also laterally brace the rafters, or what’s known as the top of the trusses.
