When to Choose a Post and Beam Barn

When to Choose a Post & Beam Barn

Many customers approach Legacy after they have decided they want a barn, but are not quite sure what construction method best fits their needs. Barns come in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials, and price points. Deciding which option is right for each use can be a challenge. However, knowing the basics can help interested individuals wade through the options. The table below outlines where a Legacy Post and Beam barn comes in from a quality, lifespan, and price perspective.

While a true wood barn is not the lowest cost option, there are many reasons a Legacy kit rises to the top of the list for customers across the nation. First, the quality and corresponding lifespan of a post and beam kit is significantly longer than its pole barn counterpart. For those looking to make a long-term investment in their property, our kits make a strong business case over the lifespan of the building.

Second, the inherent character of post and beam greatly exceeds that of a pole barn or stick frame building. A choice for post and beam is nostalgic and aesthetic in addition to being practical. Finally, adding living space to our barn kits is extremely easy. For those looking for an apartment barn, office space, a living quarters above or next to an equine/animal space, or a building they can turn into a full time residence in time, post and beam construction makes this seamless to achieve.
