Tips On Designing The Ultimate Acreage Building

Post frame construction—or pole sheds as they have been referred to—have come a long way over the decades. Today’s post frame builders can offer new design styles and accessories to modernize the look and style of your acreage property.

Acreage buildings can be designed specifically for a customer’s needs. Whether you want a building for RVs, machinery or hay storage, hobbies like car restoration, animals or a working shop, or a combination, the open plan capabilities of a post frame building can achieve a variety of your goals.

Trends in Acreage Building

Hip Roof Barn Style

Gone are the days of inefficient hip roof barns. We can now combine the efficiency of post frame building materials for these unique styles of buildings. Hip roof barns can be designed for a variety of uses including storage and insulated work and play areas.

Hardie Board Siding

Integrity offers James Hardie siding as an additional attractive option to metal for acreage buildings, barns or commercial buildings. Made of fibre cement, James Hardie siding products are more durable than vinyl or wood/wood composite, siding but have the look and warmth of real wood without the maintenance hassles. They come in a wide range of colour options. Find out more about Hardie siding.

Combination Buildings

Why settle for a single use building when you probably have a number of roles you would like your building to play? Post frame designs offer close to unlimited flexibility. Designs can include a cold storage area, insulated workshop, office, bathroom, kitchen and more.


Add a variety of custom options from wainscoting, soffit, dormers, decks, mezzanines, lean-tos, doors, Perma-Column concrete post technology and more, it’s easy to add your own personal touch to your building.

Consider the options you have with a modern post frame acreage building. Find out more about acreage buildings or get in touch with us and we can take you on a tour of a building in your area.
