FBi Buildings pole barn

The beauty of post-frame construction is its design flexibility to meet your pole barn needs long after it’s completed. In fact, it’s not uncommon to renovate an existing post-frame building for a new purpose.

For example, farmers upgrade their cold storage building into an insulated farm shop. Homeowners transform their basic pole barn garage into a man cave. We’ve even had customers convert their tool shed into a barndominium!

As you can imagine, these renovation projects are complex. You’re altering the original floor plan and intended use, which requires additional building materials and subsequent design loads (i.e., extra weight).

Discover if this renovation project is the right fit for you by downloading our FREE “Adding Pole Barn Interior Finishes” checklist.

When you repair or renovate your existing pole barn with us, you receive the same quality building materials and extensive warranty coverage as our New Construction customers.

Best of all, our dedicated Repair & Renovation Experts have the knowledge, resources and manpower to extend any post-frame building’s useful life or reconfigure it for a new purpose. It doesn’t matter who built the original structure!

Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Leadership development
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
