I know that many people on this forum are not overly concerned about cost vs value. I am a real estate appraiser and I often appraise homes with large pole barns. If you build a $50,000 pole barn you might get $25,000 back in resale; ESPECIALLY if you already have enough garage space.

Before you take the plunge, I would recommend calling up a real estate appraiser and get some advice. Probably the biggest mistake I see as an appraiser is people putting up an over improvement and then getting beat up when they have to sell.

Kind of depends on the property, though, donít you think? Outbuildings on a farm can add value if done right. For example, if the door is big enough for a combine or large tractor.

If it is a working farm. I am thinking more of residential homes.

If you put up a pole building & sheet the outside walls you could use any type of siding you like. Same for the roof then use shingles.
This would make it a whole lot less barn like.

If you use vinyl siding it wonít be as durable. If you use wood itís going to cost quite a bit more and youíll have to stain it. If you use SMART siding thatís really expensive. The advantage of metal is it is durable and pretty much maintenance free. I thought about just using T-111. Then it would mean using 2x6 walls 16 inches on center since I wanted to go 14í high.

Then if you use shingles remember it is on a low pitched roof. Donít want to have 14í side walls and a 6x12 pitch roof. That would be a huge looking building. Also shingles tend not to last as long and if you are in snow country it would add significant weight to the roof since snow tends to get stuck on shingles. With a metal roof snow generally slides off easier and doesnít get caught up there.

Thereís a good reason that most storage buildings are metal. Durable, easy to maintain, and cost effective.

Also you can make metal buildings very attractive if done right. They donít have to look like a barn.

Also a good rule of thumb is drive up and down your area. See what people have built. If you see lots of pole buildings on residential properties then you will more likely recoup the cost since people want them. If you see one or two pole barns then you might have a problem in recouping much of your cost.

Itís kind of like pools. In my area in WI we have a few people that put pools in. Waste of money. They get nothing back in resale value. People just donít want them. Too expensive to maintain for such a short season. Most people fill them in.

Now go to Phoenix and just about every house has a pool. Itís a very typical amenity. If you donít have a pool it will hurt your value.

Same principle applies to outbuildings like pole barns. I know that if I try to resell my property tomorrow I might get about half of my cost back in resale. I already have a 3 car garage. But if I live here another 10 years I save lots of storage cost and my AS will be maintained better. Thus over time my value will go up. So I wonít get hit too hard. Plus thereís the convenience etc. Also I purposely kept it modest since I live in a modest house.

But whatever you do donít build a really nice pole barn for 100,000 with a modest house. You will really get knocked on resale value.

Modest house = modest pole building.
Expensive house = modest or expensive pole building.

Kellog Kid - Very nice; we especially like the proportions. Stop by and say hello when you get over to MT.

Daq- If you have already taken the "plunge" on an expensive Airstream, the extra cost for adequate storage and recapture of cost is really moot ...if it prevents a loss to your RV ... just another old insurance adjuster's opinion!
"But whatever you do don’t build a really nice pole barn for 100,000 with a modest house. You will really get knocked on resale value. " WHO does that?

Dingo- We partially sided our "AS storage" barn with the same cement siding as we have on the house...painted the same too.

Here are some exterior shots ... don't think we over did it - we expect to get all of the investment out of the modest barn if/when we sell the property ... and it blends nicely. Usually we would have several feet of snow by now .... but just Christmas lights dangling. LOL

The lean-to addition to the side of the storage barn adds to the versatility of the structure ... covered barbeque / patio area, truck parking (Silver does not like to be far from Eddie), tractor parking, or summer season cover up for Eddie ... with easy access for loading before departures. Photo taken before addition of concrete walkway to side door.

1. I don’t particularly like to throw away money. I bought an AS because they have better resale value and should I decide to sell it I’m not going to get beat up as badly. And I can sell it quickly. Yes it is a luxury, but why spend more money than necessary and yet have an adequate storage for the AS.

2. Who does it? You’d be surprised! I’ve seen some pretty palacious pole barns. 1400sf house with 2 car garage and nearly 6000sf pole barn all insulated. Needless to say that is an over build. You figure it out at $25 per sf.

3. Insurance adjusting is much different than determining market value.
