Pole Buildings

For Any Purpose...

S.T.O.M. Contracting in Richmond, Kentucky offers custom pole building construction to meet all your needs. Pole buildings, or pole barns, are structures primarily used for the purposes of conducting agricultural business in the traditional sense. However, these frameworks can be utilized in so many ways. They are primarily constructed of long wooden rounded poles that are buried deep into the earth to maintain the integrity of the barn. With no foundation needed to begin construction, pole buildings are built quickly and without a lot of location limitations. The professional crew at S.T.O.M. Contracting brings decades of experience into fabricating your new pole building construction.

The original pole buildings

S.T.O.M. Contracting constructs pole buildings for multiple uses, just like grandpa used to build. The methods used to assemble this type of post frame construction originated in the 1930s when mechanized farming methods began to emerge. This was a way to build agricultural structures quickly and cost effectively. Farms began to require engine powered machinery so this expensive equipment needed a safe space to be stored and kept safe from the elements. The easiest way to construct these buildings was by using old, recycled telephone poles as the main structural component. Pole building construction grew in popularity due to their versatility and ability to withstand inclement weather of all kinds.

Integrity with S.T.O.M.

Pole buildings offer excellent vertical structure support. Timber girts, or sheeting rails, provide internal support laterally across the frame of the building. These horizontal beams bolster the integrity of the structure, particularly during inclement weather events where high winds are of concern. Pole buildings are rated for heavy snow loads and unpredictable weather pattern variations. They can be built on uneven ground with no foundation necessary and still maintain reliability and sturdiness. We pour concrete footers and set the poles deeply for additional stabilization. Pole building construction offers variability in construction sites since no foundation is needed. There are many reasons why pole building construction is an excellent choice for your next project:

  • Capable of withstanding extreme weather
  • Naturally ventilated by design
  • Easy to prepare the building site for construction
  • Built very quickly to save time
  • Flexible options for your intended uses 
  • No foundation necessary or needed unless you desire one
