Deciding you are going to build a pole building in Montana on your property is a very exciting thing! However, just like any structure, they require quite a bit of planning before construction begins. Here at MQS Barns, where we build custom pole barns in Montana, Idaho and Washington, here is a short overview of the first steps in building a pole barn.

Understand What You Need

Obviously, if you intend to build a pole building in Montana, you must have some idea of how you are going to use it. Knowing exactly how you intend to use your barn will help determine what size you want it to be and what features you want to include in your design. The more you know what you want your barn to look like, the easier it will be to complete the rest of the steps.

Site Location

Once you have a general idea of the design of your post frame building, the next step will be to decide a location. Where exactly on your property do you want your barn to be?

Understand Local Codes

Before any construction can begin on any agricultural buildings in Montana, you must check with your town or county’s local zoning codes. Some restrictions may include building size and distance from property line. Depending on where you live, you also may be required to obtain a permit.
