  • Stocking Supplies

  • Housing Animals and Livestock 
  • Countless Other Options 

So, if you think that a new customized pole barn is the right choice for you, there is one key decision to make before you get started, and that is picking where on your property it will be built.  Once you’ve selected the location of your farm building in Ohioyou can begin prepping the land.

Before beginning a construction project, the customer needs to check with their city to receive all the proper building permits, and must also abide by all city codes during the build.  The construction site must be leveled and has to receive final approval from the city before the project can begin. 

Check With the City About Utilities 

Many agricultural buildings in Ohio are built on sites in rural areas that don’t initially have access to utilities.  Check with your city to see if you can get sewer, gas, water, and electricity for your desired location.  If any of these utilities are unavailable in this area, you may have to look into alternatives like: 

  • Digging a Well (Water) 
  • A Septic System (Sewer) 
  • Propane Tank (Heat)  
  • Solar Panels (Electricity)
