Choosing the Ideal Lean-To Design

West Virginia agricultural buildings

Are you considering adding one of the many different types of West Virginia agricultural buildings to your property?  If so, you have like researched the different designs that custom post frame builders in West Virginia have to offer. 

You may just want a simple, cookie-cutter design building to store the basics like farm equipment, supplies, etc.  Or you might be more intrigued by a structure with lots of customizations to help put your personality or style into it.  One feature you may want to consider for custom pole barns in West Virginia is adding a lean-to in order to maximize your new building.

What is a lean-to? 

A lean-to is an extension of the main structure to provide some extra space for storage, shade, etc., and can be used for many different purposes.  Below we will explain three different lean-to designs that MQS Structures can add to your pole building in West Virginia. 

  • WrapAround Lean-To 
  • Partly Closed Lean-To 
  • Open Lean-To 

WrapAround Lean-To 

The wraparound design is very versatile as it allows for both storage and convenience.  It can be a covered parking spot for smaller items like trailers, mowers, or a four-wheeler.  It also provides nice shade if you want to relax and enjoy a nice West Virginia breeze while being out of the sun.

Partly Closed Lean-To 

Many owners of farm buildings in West Virginia will use a partly closed lean-to like they would a small garage.  The benefit of a partly closed design is its outside wall, which provides one extra layer of protection compared to other lean-to designs.  A partly closed design is also good for storage for things like hay, feed, and other supplies that are used regularly on the farm.

Open Lean-To 

An open lean-to makes many building owners feel like their building is much more spacious, even though it is an exterior feature.  The open lean-to is very similar to a patio, with a roof to provide shade and protect you from the elements.  Set up a few patio chairs, get the grill going, invite over a few friends, and enjoy a beautiful West Virginia day.
