Different Ways to Use a Pole Barn

Amish Barn Builders in Ohio

What do you think of when you hear the word “barn?” Most people tend to think of a structure that houses farm animals and equipment. However, barns can be used for much more than a home for horses. At MQS Structures, where we build custom pole barns in Ohio, we have seen people use their barns for a variety of things. Here are a few different ways to use a pole barn according to our custom post frame builders in Ohio:

Event Space

A notable feature of pole barns is the ample space they provide. This makes them an ideal structure for large events such as weddings and other large celebrations. With high ceilings, pole barns are perfect for allowing people to mingle with no obstructions in the way and without feeling claustrophobic.


Next to housing livestock, our builders commonly build post frame buildings in Ohio to serve as a garage. Pole barns make for excellent garages because they can be as large or small as you need and are very cost-effective structures. Pole barns can also accommodate large vehicles, such as RV’s. It’s the perfect place to store an RV during the months when you aren’t using it.

Hobby Shop

Our custom pole barns in Ohio also make for great hobby shops. Whether your hobby is woodworking, automotive repair, working out, or painting, a pole barn can serve as your dedicated space for your hobby.

Man Cave/ She Shed

A fun way to use a pole barn is by turning it into a man cave or she-shed. Because pole barns are climate controlled and insulated, you can feel confident that the items and furniture in your man cave will be protected from exterior elements. Read our article on must have’s for your man cave.


Lastly, post frame buildings in Ohio are great for storage. Like we just mentioned, pole barns are climate-controlled buildings, so you don’t have to worry about any damage to your belongings. Check out more benefits of using a pole building in Ohio for storage.
