Here at superior Outdoor Structures we can help you in making wise and intelligent choices as you plan and execute this process. You will have to do your “Homework” on these buildings for sure.

HOMEWORK POLE BARN HOME'S
Get a tablet and a pencil you're going to need them to take notes, and sketch or draw a layout or floor plan. It will also help to get a measuring tape of at least 30' and sometimes a 100' tape would be better. Plus look through our frequently asked questions to help guide you through this process before you call.
Measure the area you are going to construct your Superior Outdoor Structures pole barn width, length, and height for obstructions. Make a note of these numbers to give to us when you call. Knowing your size is the starting point and most important information to know. We can help advise you once you give us these dimensions. This will be the first thing we ask you when you call. It’s best to add 5’ around the building when measuring for dirt and site prep and room to perform the construction of the pole barn. Also determine the roof pitch you desire from 3/12 to 5/12. For roof pitches 6/12 and up there is and additional equipment charge to build these buildings.
Next decide 29 gauge or 26 gauge sheet metal.
Now measure the width, length, and height of the items that will be going in your Superior Outdoor Structures pole barn. Make sure to allow enough space between two vehicles if you’re parking two or more items side by side to open doors and to walk among them comfortably. Do not forget to leave room for your Mac and Matco tool boxes and Miller welding equipment when measuring just to name a few things. Allow enough room also to place that Harbor Freight Air Compressor in the corner out of the way of doors and such.
Now determine if you are going to build any lean-to’s on the side’s or end’s on your Superior Outdoor Structures pole barn. Determine the minimum height under the eave to drive and walk under. We will use a 2/12 pitch on most lean-to’s. Determine if you want them partial closed in or open all the way around.
Now determine the number and size of your large openings for access or doors and determine their location. Next decide if you wish to have us install our garage doors, slider doors, dutch doors, or custom sliders. Keep in mind if you're going to want to install a door opener a conventional garage door will be your only choice. Also note when putting doors on the eve sides of the buildings you will need 18” taller than the door. We can install up to an 18’ wide garage doors standard in the gable ends and eaves we will need to install a L.V.L. header when putting the wider doors on the eave side. Next determine if you want insulated or non insulated doors and possibly any windows in the garage doors.
Next is to decide if you are going to insulate your building and if you’re going to heat only or heat and cool the pole barn as well.
Next step is walk through doors and windows. Number of personal doors and type, steel jamb/steel door or aluminum jamb/steel door. Next is windows 2x3, 3x3, 3x4, or 3x5 and locations. Pencil them in on your drawing.
Next is to decide if you want a solid wall color or wainscot.
Now comes the time to decide if you want 12” soffits, or standard metal overhang, and any other option’s as well.
Now if you have the ability, get some stakes and string and stake it off in the location you're going to build it in, then drive the items inside the staked off area to verify you are going to be able to accommodate all the items you are going to store and walk about comfortably is one of the best ideas to confirm your needs.
Determine if you're going to construct your building with concrete inside and out.
Make sure there are no utilities that will be harmed or in the way when building the structure or driving the anchors. In Oklahoma call Okie "811" if you are in doubt. Other states just contact your local utility company they will advise you from there.
Check grade and verify how far off level the area is. Determine how you want to level the area beforehand. We have contractors that we can recommend in most cases to help you. All bids are made considering you have a flat and level pad, we very seldom include dirt and site prep in our bids unless it’s specifically noted and initialed by you.
Now put it all on paper and decide if you need more room to grow. In all the years of advising customers and selling buildings I have never heard anyone say they wish they had built a smaller building. But it’s very seldom a day goes by without these words spoken to me. “I
wish I would have built a bigger building last time
". So you might determine if your area and budget will allow for a bit larger building say 20% for growing room. It's always easier in the beginning and cheaper to do it the first time.
Next determine your
if possible at this point. Roof, trim, walls and if you're going to wainscot the sides. Wainscot is when you see a building that has the first 3' or 4’ a different color than the rest of the wall and usually matches the trim and or roof.
If you are financing determine the method you wish to use. Let us know which finance option you are looking at and we will advise you from there. See "
" for more detailed information.

Please keep in mind that it is up to you when purchasing a Superior Outdoor Structures pole barn to research and obtain any permits that your particular state, county, and city require. *Superior Outdoor Structures and its contractors do not require that you have a permit to build and we take no responsibility in the event that one was not obtained before construction. If permits are to be obtained you will likely need to have an engineer drawings of some sort for your local codes, please inform us of this when purchasing or pricing so we may assist you in obtaining the proper paperwork and price the pole barn correctly.
NOTE: For post frame homes we will require that you have a basic drawing and in most cases come into our office to discuss these buildings, there are many variables when designing and constructing pole barns that are to be use for homes that need to be discussed in person. Be sure to tell us if you are constructing your pole barn for a residence when you call or come in.
