Single slope pole buildings are not only economical, but offer a unique design that allows for architectural details that cannot be used in typical pole building design. Single sloped post frame buildings are often used as loafing pole sheds but with the addition of a portico, the building can be transformed into an exceptional piece of architecture. Porticos extend the roof using glulam beams allowing for a covered area that is not only practical but aesthetically pleasing. See an example of a portico.
Loafing pole sheds are very common in single slope post frame construction which allows for a reasonably priced pole building in which your horses can escape from the elements without having to be kept in stalls. Often enclosed on three sides, these pole buildings are the perfect answer for someone looking for protection for their horses without having to spend the additional money for a full horse pole barn.
