Your pole barn fits well with your house. Typically someone buying your type of house will have “toys.” I actually saw a pole barn that 6600 sq’ this past year. He got beat up real badly on resale. And that was even on a million dollar sale.

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.
Mine is metal and does not look like a barn at all.

Just ran across this thread. I didn't read all of it but I will jump in as I had a pole barn built with insulation and a concrete floor. Cost? $19,000 for a 30 x 60.

I hired a group of Amish and the building was up in one week. I live in Ohio with a large population of Amish. They worked sunrise to sundown. Great quality and has lasted me over time. One 8 x 12 garage door and one 16 x 12 door. Also one man door.

Just a thought.

Daq- I disagree with your assertion about a pole barn not adding value...not sure where you live, but an addition like a nice pole barn or RV garage is something most of us "guys" would love to see when looking for a new home if there is space and no HOA's! Problem is, in many neighborhoods the HOAs may not permit. I know I am looking for solutions for both MT and TX now (no HOA's). My good friend been selling real estate for 45 years says "great addition" if done right. I doubt anyone buying a "million dollar" home is complaining about the pole barn or anything else....that type dollar usually has a good selection of homes to choose. By the way, usually it's the home that gets the most attention...the garage or pole barn is added value! Anyhow, off topic now...

Did I say it didn’t add value? Did you read my post? I said you are not going to get your COST back. COST DOES NOT EQUAL MARKET VALUE. I’ve been a professional real estate appraiser for 22 years. I’ve probably appraised 8,000 properties in the last 22 years, and I have worked with other appraisers in this area for as long. And I can categorically state YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR COST BACK. You will got some value, but the amount will depend upon your market and lots of other factors.

A “great addition” does not mean getting your cost back. It may increase marketability, but that doesn’t equal cost. Maybe you should ask your friend who has been selling real estate to clarify his statement.

And if I had a dime for every property over priced by real estate agents I’d be a rich man.

But go ahead. Build that big pole barn. You’ll be adding great value for the guy that buys it 50 cents on the dollar for what you have put into it.

And you nailed it right on the head. It is the home that gets the most attention. It’s not the pole barn, I can tell you that.

I always get a kick out of people who haven’t appraised one home yet they can tell a professional that they are wrong. That is hubris. It’s also why I see homeowners do lots of really dumb things. They’ve watched way too many shows on HGTV.

Well, you surely are "the" expert here...I've only been buying and selling homes for 45 years myself...thought I knew a little until I see your getting your dander up So lets just agree that value is in the eyes of the buyer...not the appraiser! And "dumb things" to some, may be just what the buyer wants...but, your the expert here...I would never challenge such expertise...nor would I put my decisions on one persons input. Merry Christmas!

We live up on a mountain/out in the country. I had this built last fall,I consider it a work in progress! I'll side it my self with rough cut 1x8 hemlock from local mill. Then I'll build shed roof on each side. No need to stain the wood as we like to let it turn natural grey to match our other barn and run in for the horses.
