Redesign Your Post-Frame Building into the Ideal Hangout Space

Pole Barn & Post-Frame Building Renovation | Mansea Metal - iStock-1365854285Finding extra space for your belongings or an area designated to your hobbies and interests can be difficult as a homeowner. Your home is only equipped with so much square footage before it begins to feel cramped and unlivable. Thankfully, we have a solution—pole barns! A pole barn is a large agricultural structure with no basement, a high ceiling, and wide-open spaces—empty and ready for your vision to come to life.

Whether you have an old, existing barn on your property or have enough space to build an entirely new structure, turning this additional square footage into a man cave, she-shed, or entertainment space is completely possible with Mansea Metal. Let’s take a look at how you can create the space of your dreams!

Start With a Vision

First things first—define your vision. Do you want a space for the kids to play basketball or soccer? An adults-only bar to entertain friends after the kids have gone to bed? How about a space for you to simply breathe and read a book in peace? All these ideas and more are fully possible with an existing structure or a new-build pole barn.

Your vision for the multi-use living area should reflect your personality and interests. Determine the overall goal of the space and how you want it to make you feel the moment you walk in. Some potential ideas for your pole barn include:

  • Game Room
  • Home Theater
  • Workspace
  • Home Bar
  • Studio

Develop a Plan with a Professional

Now, here comes the fun part—blueprints, game plans, and building material selections. If you already have a pre-existing barn or structure on your property that you want to renovate, it’s important to lay out all possible outcomes. These renovations could include, but aren’t limited to, restructuring the foundation and walls and installing a new roof. For a complete new-build structure, you’ll want to ensure you have the land cleared, concrete poured, and a safe and secure frame and roofing structure so the building stays standing for years.

At Mansea Metal, we are committed to helping you bring your vision to life. We have been manufacturing quality metal roofing, siding, and post-frame buildings for the agriculture industry for over a decade. We’ll work with you to determine a construction plan that meets your needs and doesn’t break the bank. 

Get to Decorating

Once the pole barn is built, walls are painted, and flooring is in place, the only thing left to do is get creative! There are endless possibilities for your newfound square footage. Here are a few ideas to get the creative juices flowing and the decorating started.

  • Set up a bar with a beer fridge, bar stools, and televisions
  • Use a smaller shed space as your own personal oasis to journal, paint, read, or do yoga
  • Create the ultimate movie theater for the whole family. Complete the vision with a floor-to-ceiling projector, popcorn machine, and comfortable lounge chairs
  • Practice outdoor activities all year round by designing a basketball court or soccer field
  • Soundproof the room and make it a prime spot for composing music and jamming out with friends as loud as you want
  • Fill the space with power tools and workbenches to create the ultimate woodworking shop

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 6x6’s along with 2x10’s and 2x12’s that are #1 grade.
