If you’ve finally decided to build a pole building in Ohio, you may be wondering what the first steps entail. Luckily, you’ve already completed step one, which is deciding to build a barn! But what comes next? Continue reading for a basic overview of the beginning phases of building a pole barn:
Determine Your Needs
Farm buildings in Ohio can be used for a variety of things, but how are you going to use your barn? Determining your needs, such as what you are going to use your barn for and how large you want it to be, are both crucial before completing the next steps.
Check With Local Building Codes
Before any construction begins, checking with your local building codes is very important. You may be unaware that your town or county has specific building codes that you must abide by when constructing any agricultural buildings in Ohio. Examples include building size, segment, and setbacks from property lines. You may also need a permit. If this is the case, here at MQS Structures, it is the customer’s responsibility to apply for the permit if it is required to build any post frame buildings in Ohio.
