Storage sheds made in the style of pole barns are becoming more popular in the United States than ever before. There are the number of reasons for the growth of pole barns, and one of the main ones is simply that storage space is needed now more than ever before. As society has progressed, the average person has been able to collect more and more things – meaning that more and more people are in need of some sort of a storage building. And while some are content to store their things at a storage facility, many people simply feel better when their possessions are near them and accessible at all times.
The garage is one such typical place where people store the possessions that they no longer have the space for in their actual homes. In fact, so many garages are utilized as storage spaces that an astounding twenty five percent of all households in the United States have garages that are so full with possessions that the actual car or cars do not have the space to fit inside them. And this same percentage of people has never planned on using garage space for cars in the first place. Nearly thirty percent choose to utilize their garage space for storage, and another twenty three percent use it for building and working on vehicles of all different types. It is more and more common to see carports used for a purpose that is not the original intended use – but many people in the United States simply do not have another viable storage alternative and with an average of around three hundred
thousand objects (if not more) per household with an average of only twenty or so square feet of shelf storage space, it is no surprise that people are needing to store their belongings in inconvenient spaces.
The addition of a garden shed or a storage shed can rectify this problem. Pole barns – efficiently and inexpensively made buildings – are a great option for storage shed construction. Pole barns can be erected relatively quickly and pole barns will last a decent number of years if well maintained. Pole barns can be ideal for an additional building on your property, even if it is simply to provide some much needed additional storage space. As any shed builder can tell you, pole barns provide a reliable structure at a low cost, with significant lateral and vertical bearing strength.
If you are looking into the building of pole barns but can’t quite commit to the idea yet, you should consider all of your storage options. As mentioned briefly at the beginning of this article, a storage facility is always an option. However, many people don’t like having their possessions so far removed from their homes and themselves. And storage facilities often cost a fee to use space in them – and the nicer the storage facility and the more thorough the security protecting the belongings that you would potentially store their, the higher the monthly or yearly cost.
In this day and age, we have more things, more physical items, than ever before. Unfortunately, this often means that we simply do not have the adequate storage space to accommodate them all. This often leads to home owners storing objects in places like the garage, which can quickly become cluttered and so full that they are unable to fulfill their original purpose of storing cars and other such vehicles. Pole barns provide a solution for many to the ever growing storage problem in the United States, as they are durable but relatively inexpensive, and will last for years and years if kept up regularly and thoroughly.
