Frequently Asked Questions About Pole Buildings and Post Frame Construction


Q: Is post-frame construction cheaper?
A: Compared to other building methods, post-frame is often the faster, more efficient alternative. However, less expensive doesn’t mean cheaper quality.

Q: Are your buildings custom designed?
A: Yes. Almost any amount of design customization can be accommodated. We suggest you work closely with your Miner Pole Buildings sales professional to ensure that all questions are answered and addressed at the time of the building’s design plans.

Q: What type of structure do I need, agricultural or exempt or county permitted?
A: It depends on 3 different factors: what the intended use of your structure, and what county do you live in.  In Oregon every county allows agricultural structures but in Washington some counties allow them and some do not.  Check with your local county and they will inform you on which type you will need.  If your county allows agricultural structures you will need to meet their criteria for the use of the structure which is most commonly but not limited to:  Horse structures,  Hay storage, Machine storage, Crop storage

Q:  Are there any differences between the two different types of structures?
A:  Yes.  An agricultural exempt structure is exempt from the permitted process and does not need to be inspected or have engineered plans submitted to the county.  The county allows these structures to save farmers and ranchers time on the installation and money for engineered drawings.  A county permitted structure requires site specific engineered drawings and regular inspections throughout the building process.

Q:  What width can I span?
A:  We can span up to 80 feet with wood trusses.  After 80 feet we use steel trusses with which we can obtain a span of up to 100 feet.

Q: How long will it take for my building to be constructed after I sign the contract?
A: This differs by time of year, building type, current schedule. Typically, though, it is about 4-5 weeks from the time your contract is signed until the construction of your building is complete.
