Single slope roof 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 pole barn buildings are often used as loafing pole sheds for animals but with the addition of a portico, the building can be transformed into an exceptional piece of architecture. Porticos extend the sloped roof using glulam beams allowing for a covered area that is not only practical but aesthetically pleasing.

Single slope loafing 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 sloped loafing sheds 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.
See this winning design for our Camano Island Washington customer – a Single Slope Garage design with 18” overhangs on the sides and back and a 24” overhang on the front all enclosed with T&G Pine We used HardiePlank® Cedarmill 6” Lap siding and a 26 gauge 16″ wide standing seam roof to match the house. The look was finished with a custom roll up door with frosted glass panels. The final product brought the style of his custom home to his car’s home and left everyone truly satisfied.

Another great example from PermaBilt is this single slope pole building shop and studio office in Edmonds Washington was built for a carpenter and artist. He needed a space that allowed for maximum flexibility, lots of natural light and had a bit of style. Working with a local PermaBilt® Builder they came up with this Grid lean-to sloped roof design that utilized glue lam beans to keep the floor space clear of any interior posts. The Lean-To sloping roof profile along with the Portico gives this shop the modern exterior look he was trying to achieve. Lots of windows and a roll up door with a double row of lights allows for maximum natural lighting. The roll up door also allows easy accessibility for those large carpentry and art projects.
