The Basics of Post-Frame Buildings
In post-frame construction, the frame of a structure is built using a system of large, heavy posts and roof trusses. Unlike traditional stick-built structures, these highly engineered frames efficiently transfer loads to the ground without requiring significant support from interior walls. As a result, engineered wood-framed buildings can support vast open spaces that aren’t possible with traditional construction methods. Originally used mostly in agricultural settings, this style of construction has increasingly become the method of choice for many projects. Common applications include:
- Warehouses and storage facilities
- Manufacturing plants
- Single-family homes
- Multi-family residences
- Offices and retail spaces
- Institutional facilities
Post-Frame Construction Offers Enticing Advantages
Because interior walls and columns are unnecessary, the most obvious advantage of a post-frame building is space. Post-frame structures can support spans up to nearly 100 feet, maximizing the amount of usable space inside. This makes them ideal for commercial, industrial, and agricultural purposes, but they’re well-suited for residential applications as well.
The engineered posts are spaced further apart than traditional studs, creating much larger cavities inside the walls. This leaves more room for insulation, making post-frame buildings impressively efficient compared to stick-built structures. They’re also quicker and less labor-intensive to build, helping to keep construction costs low. Best of all, they can be finished with nearly any type of exterior facade to create the perfect aesthetic.
