There are many options available to add to the exterior design when it comes to curb appeal and aesthetics for farm buildings in Montana. Here at MQS Barns, we offer a few exterior options for pole barn curb appeal for our customers to choose from.


Wainscot is a very common feature among custom pole barns in Montana. It is a sheet of steel that wraps around the base of a post frame building, and is usually the same color as the roof. Not only does it provide significant curb appeal, but it is also a functional feature as it protects the main wall from damage from kicked-up debris or a vehicle driving too close to the building.


Similar to wainscot, a cupola is also a prevalent feature on agricultural buildings in Montana. A cupola is a small structure that sits atop the roof of a pole building shop to excellent curb appeal. Check out our other blog about cupolas here!

Open Lean-To

If you want to get the most out of your pole building in Montana, then we recommend adding an open lean-to. Open lean-to’s are a popular addition to many barns because of the extra space they provide. Whether you want to use it to create a porch area or store your vehicle under it, an open lean-to is an excellent way to increase curb appeal.
