Do you need more space or storage for the new vehicle, RV, or tractor you just bought? If you answered “yes,” you may want to consider a pole building for your storage needs. Luckily, you do not have to break the bank on a new pole barn. For one, a pole building in Montana is already a reasonably inexpensive structure to build. But if you are looking to save a little extra money on this project, here are three money-saving tricks to keep in mind before you begin the building process.


Optimizing the columns’ spacing in your new pole barn is something many pole barn builders in Montana recommend if you are trying to save money. This means that the further apart your columns are spaced, the less material the builders will use. Therefore, less material will result in a lower cost for you in the end.

Do Not Go Overboard on Aesthetics

The exciting part about adding a new pole barn on your property is getting to choose all of the aesthetic features you want your barn to have. However, if you do not want to break the bank, then we suggest not going overboard with aesthetics. The more features you have will add to the overall cost of your building. Trust us – your barn will still look beautiful no matter what!

Fortunately, there are many aesthetics you can include that will help you stay within your budget. Check out just some of the features we offer our customers here.

Install Wainscot

As pole barn builders in Montana, wainscot is a very common feature we add to many of our barns for customers. While wainscot will increase your pole building cost, it will save you a tremendous amount of money down the road. Wainscot is a sheet of metal that is installed on the lower section of a pole barn to provide an extra layer of protection. Check out our blog about wainscot and the many benefits of it here.
