Single Slope Roof Pole Building Styles

Single slope roof style pole buildings are not only economical but can offer a unique design that allows for architectural details that cannot be used in typical pole building design. Single sloped roof pole buildings are often used as loafing sheds for animals. With the addition of a portico, the building can be transformed into an exceptional piece of architecture. Porticoes extend the sloped roof using glulam beams allowing for a covered area that is not only practical but aesthetically pleasing. A great look for small garage or workshop addition to your property.

See an Example of a Portico Addition.

Single slope roof loafing sheds are very common in single slope post frame construction. This building style 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 roof loafing sheds are the perfect answer for someone looking for protection for their horses. The single slop style is also way more affordable than building a full horse pole barn on your property.

See this winning design for our Camano Island Washington customer – a Single Slope Roof two-car garage building design with 18” overhangs on the sides and back and a 24” overhang on the front all enclosed with T&G Pine. We also used HardiePlank® Cedarmill 6” Lap siding and a 26-gauge 16″ wide standing seam roof to match the house. The building’s 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 roof pole building shop and studio office in Edmonds Washington; 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 style lean-to sloped roof design. It would utilize 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.

This is a unique 24’ x 36’ building with a single slope roof, that has a 10’ high interior wall. Our PermaBilt Building Representative worked with the customer to design a building that would fit in with their environment. The 10’ x 9’ door on the end provides easy access and ability to get equipment in and out of the building. This distinctive building also has 18” overhangs and gutters. We finished it with a man door and three 6’ x 2’ windows to allow for natural light in. See More on This Single Slope Building
