What is a Lean-to? Benefits Customizable Real Stories

Upgrade your pole barn with a lean-to, creating a shelter from the elements along the outside wall. Great for easy-access storage, sitting areas and more!

What Is a Pole Barn Lean-To?

You’ve likely seen a lean-to or two in your life, whether you realized it not! These popular pole barn options go back centuries, when rafters would freely lean up against the wall of an existing building to expand it.

Our lean-tos are safely built to the existing structure, adding a sizable area protected by a roof – but otherwise open – for a combination of shelter plus easy access.

Benefits of a Lean-to for Your Pole Barn

The structural benefit of a lean-to is simply more usable space. It extends your pole barn laterally, giving you more area protected by the extra roof. When it comes to using them – the sky’s the limit!

If you use a pole barn for storage, they’re great for protecting key machinery or tools from the rain while keeping them accessible at all angles. For pole barn man-caves or workshops, they’re popular as sitting areas to enjoy some fresh air without worrying about a downpour.

DIY Pole Barn Lean-Tos Are Customizable for Your Needs

Using our Instant Quote tool, you can plan your pole barn lean-tos exactly how you want them! Choose your width and your length, with sizes ranging from 8’x8’ to 12’x120’! Leave it open for the ideal place to take a load off and enjoy the day or enclose it to protect important vehicle or machinery while still leaving them accessible at a moment’s notice.

You aren’t limited to just one, either. Your pole barn can be designed with lean-tos on either side, creating plenty of possibilities for your beautiful new structure!
