Pole Building Projects
Over 25 Low-Cost Plans
by Monte Burch

      Pole construction can potentially save time, labor, and money, because it requires no foundation excavation, only limited grading, and fewer materials. Pole buildings allow the use of sites not suitable for other types of construction, and pole design offers excellent structural integrity and wind resistance. The poles transfer snow, wind, and building loads directly into the ground. Plus, the simplicity and ease of construction of pole buildings make them ideal for the first time builder.

      Monte Burch's Pole Building Projects is a nicely organized book oriented towards beginners, with chapters covering tools, poles, beginning construction, wall framing, roof construction, metal siding and roofing, nonmetal roofing and wood siding, plus finishing details. The book includes more than two dozen plans for projects such as carports, patios, equipment sheds, barns, garages, animal shelters, livestock shade, mobile home covers, workshops, camp shelter, vacation homes, gazebos, grape arbors, and decks. With this book you can acquire the necessary skills to take on a small project or a big one! 200 pages. 1993. Storey Publishing. ISBN: 0-88266-859-5.
