The History of Post-Frame Buildings

Could you single-handedly construct a building in a month? We bet you could! That was the mindset at the creation of the post frame building.

A framed house.

Commonly referred to as pole barns, post frame building construction is a simplified building method that was developed in the 1930’s as a way to offer an affordable, quick solution to the new corporate farming practices. During that time, there was a shift toward engine-powered farm equipment which led farmers to seek cheaper and larger storage units that could be constructed with minimal to no assistance.

The 1920’s fostered low values on agricultural products, allowing room for corporate farming practices to grow. With larger acreage and a rising need for space, the method of post framing emerged. The practice originally used utility poles for agricultural builds, but soon advanced into what it is today.

Modern day metal building construction is flexible on form and function, meaning options are infinite! With a wide variety of colors, add-ons, designs, and more, these buildings are no longer limited to rural settings and farmers. People have frequently used our high-quality, post frame building kit packages to create homes, sheds, garages, play houses, and more!

Pole barn construction is a tried and true building method that will surely withstand the test of time. We are excited for the future of post frame buildings! Where do you see the future of pole barn construction in the next 80 years? Comment below!

The Mansea Metal Difference

We Are The Manufacturer

Most of the companies who advertise metal roofing and siding or post-frame buildings are simply reselling products produced by someone else. We produce our own products from rolled steel and have large indoor yards that keep our lumber protected. That way, we control the quality and time of delivery to you. And that creates jobs right here in your home town.

Higher Quality Steel with Superior Finishes

The truth is not all steel is alike, especially when it comes to finishes. That’s why we use Sherwin-Williams WeatherXL™ Coil Coatings. Created to withstand most anything that comes its way, designed to maintain extreme resistance to abrasion, chipping and marring with tremendous color and gloss retention. And you get to select your favorites from more than 22 striking color options

You Won’t Be Shorted On Lumber

When we price a building package, we give you everything you need to ensure structural integrity. Like longer gable posts that extend to the top of the truss, not just tying in at the bottom. And long-lasting pressure-treated wood measuring .60 CCA. You won’t get this quality at a ‘big box’ store. Plus, we use true 6x6’s along with 2x10’s and 2x12’s that are #1 grade.
