Dreams Become Reality
DIY Pole Barns helped me to make the barn of my dreams a reality. From the design, to the delivery, and technical support in building the barn myself has been exceptional. The quality of lumber and steel is top notch. I did all of this over the phone and having never met these guys in person, I feel like I know them personally from the support I have received. What other pole barn provider do you know that the owner of the company would give you his personal number to access him after hours to answer technical questions? DIY Pole Barns provides building packages that are affordable and the quality that you expect.

Just wanted to drop you an email to let you know how pleased we are with our new barns. It has been almost a year ago when the heavy snow and ice took down our other barn. It was only 2 years old, but back then we made a poor choice and bought a metal barn. A lot of metal barns were lost here last winter.
I went looking for a structure to replace the barn, which was used for hay storage, and came upon your site. I looked at every barn imaginable and priced a lot of them. When I priced your buildings, I couldn't believe the pricing. It was well below what we ever thought a pole barn would cost. Of course, leary of a internet company, I continued my search for a suitable building. After getting a lot of proposals back, no one could touch yours. I decided it was time for a phone call. I got a very knowledgeable person on the other line, who not only was patient with me and my 1,001 questions, but also turned out to be a good Christian. Two traits I highly value in a person.
After lots of thinking, budgeting, and looking around for other builders that where local, we decided to get two buildings from DIY Pole Barns. After we made the final decision on size, colors and options, and placed our deposit, things went fast. We decided to let the Preferred Builders build our two new barns. They are very good at what they are doing, and very fast. They worked at least 12 hours a day and had our buildings done in 4 days. They started Monday around noon and left here on Friday around noon. A very nice, respectful crew that knew what they had to do to get the job done.
Here we are 2 months later and there are 2 brand new buildings on our property, and 6 happy horses that don’t have to spend another winter outside.
Thank you, DIY Pole Barns and your building crew, for a great service and a great product. We have been recommending your company to all our friends.

I LOVE this building......my ONLY mistake was making it too small. If I could do-over I'd make it 10' longer. Anyway, Your Preferred Builder did a terrific job putting it together. A few months later I did a 4" gravel, wire and 5"concrete. I wired it 12V with 2 deep cycle batteries and a small solar panel. I also installed standard house switches/keyless light fixtures and fluorescent lights. Last fall I added the woodstove. This fall I'm installing a shower and deep sink with 12V pump from 300 gallon tanks. I keep a tractor, implements, a '75 Blazer, army cot, and work shop there. It's my man cave and hunting lodge.
The Real Deal
I cannot express enough my satisfaction with DIY Pole Barns professionalism and courtesy. DIY is “the best of the best” at what they do! They are completely knowledgeable about every aspect of what is required to get you the building that you need, and get it to you at the right price! I spent over a year researching and doing cost analysis, comparing whether to buy a large shed, build a garage or build a pole building. I searched everywhere, friends, Craigslist, the internet, local home improvement stores as well as local builders and building stores. I was never satisfied with what I could get for my money; sheds were too small and too expensive, garages had more code requirements and were also very costly, and pole buildings… well they were just too expensive, and getting a contractor to build them, the costs were out of the question.
I lucked upon DIY Pole Barns when searching the internet. I priced a building on line with no hassle at all. I couldn’t believe the price! DIY’s material cost was 25 to 40% lower than any quotation that I had found elsewhere, using all top quality materials. The cost that they offered to build the building was also more than 30% less than comparable estimates. It looked like I was about to save about 50% of what everyone else had been telling me… this was too good to be true!
I called DIY and spoke to their sales team (I am leery of internet only companies, I like to talk to real people), here is what I received for my call, professionalism, courtesy, knowledge and most of all honesty, which made me know that these were the guys to do business with. They knew my building codes and everything that I would encounter with my environment, and even offered to speak with the inspectors and the building department if I needed help understanding and explaining terminology and building codes. These guys were great!
DIY placed me in contact with their preferred builders who built my barn. This was a spectacular experience! They built my barn complete in 1-½ days. Other contractors said a week to two weeks, and they wanted much more money. DIY’s preferred building team was professional and their experience and attention to detail really showed.
I know people are skeptical of letters like this praising companies, but DIY is the real deal. You don’t have to take my word for it, look at the pictures that I have provided of my completed project and you will see. In an era where customer service and keeping your word almost means nothing, DIY Pole Barns still treasures these values by providing excellence.
As a testament to your good service, please feel free to contact me if you have potential customers who would like to speak to me directly regarding your products or service.
I must say that it seems every time I hire someone to do construction related jobs, I am disappointed. I am pretty picky when it comes to buying or hiring construction items. Long story short, I have been very pleased in dealing with DIY, the preferred builders and the quality of the materials received. The on-line process is quite easy and actually fun to use. It easily shows you the cost while considering different options. Once I decided what I wanted, working with DIY's designers was equally rewarding. Building was delivered and materials placed where I wanted them. Driver was very helpful and pleasant to work with. Erection of the building was delayed due to the rainy weather this fall but well worth the wait. The "preferred builders" did a great job and were done in less than 4 days.
I would and am highly recommending your company and products to everyone who asks. Thanks for providing such a nice product.
We had a fantastic experience with DIY Pole Barns and are excited about our new barn! Using the online quoting tool saved so much time and gets rid of the back-and-forth negotiating that goes along with most companies. Being able to go online, customize your barn, and having a free quote within minutes is something we truly found noteworthy. In addition, the preferred builders worked very hard and had the barn build in just 2 days.
This spring we plan on pouring a concrete floor and adding rubber mats to provide stability for our 2 horses that will be stabled. Furthermore, we’ll add a wash rack with heated lamps inside the barn for washing and cleaning the horses.” When asked if the horses were spoiled, Barb looked me in the eyes, while laughing out loud and said, “Not at all”.
Our experience has been so good that we recommend DIY Pole Barns for anyone that needs a barn built.
Kenny has worked at major manufacturing company for over twenty years and Tammy works from home. They have two sons, three dogs and reside outside of Springfield, OH.
Like many others, Kenny is a hard-working American that drives almost two hours each day for work. You might be thinking that Kenny would be exhausted after long days, but that doesn't stop him! He loves staying active and working on many different projects in his DIY Pole Barn. After a long hard day of work, he prefers spending his free time tinkering and working on cars.
Kenny specifically craves working on old historic cars. He enjoys restoring and making old cars look new; especially Chevy’s. He also shares this passion with his sons that are also into classic cars. Kenny and his boys work hand in hand restoring these cars, creating the opportunity for quality time. For them, it’s personally rewarding to work with each other while giving an old vehicle new life. Their DIY Pole Barn has not only created a space for Kenny to work on cars, but also to spend quality time with his sons.
They needed a big barn to provide room for a car lift and to store their car collection. In addition to remodeling and refurbishing older cars, Kenny has also installed a CNC mill. Once Kenny retires, he plans on working on cars and starting a side business, using his recently purchased CNC mill.
Brian is a retired Marine veteran of 22 years, and Shay has a passion for training and riding horses. Now that Brian has retired from the service, they finally had the opportunity to escape the dreaded heat of the south. On hot summer days, living in the southern part of South Carolina, exposes civilians to extreme heat, gnats and other bugs. As Shay put it, “you simply just want to stay inside and find relief from the heat.”
Brian and Shay, along with their 3 children, decided to escape the southern heat and move back to the Midwest. They found the house of their dreams on a beautiful plot of land. The only issue was that there was no existing barn for their horses. Shay’s involvement with horses runs very deep; she provides horse training classes for riding and competition. She loves teaching young children how to ride, along with proper techniques for taking care of horses.
Their new DIY pole barn currently stables six horses with plans to add another six. In addition, they’re planning to add a show arena next to the barn for further training and show related competitions. In the future, Brian and Shay look forward to adding even more features within the barn. These would include office space for Shay to run her business, a washroom for the horses, and an upstairs living quarters.
Kenny and Pearl are a retired couple that live outside of Springfield, Ohio. With Kenny being a truck driver, they spent a lot of time traveling and hitting the roads. After retiring, they stayed busy by buying an RV and boat for continued exploration. Enjoying life and taking advantage of each day is very important to them both. Kenny has had eight back surgeries, and Pearl has struggled with some health issues. Moving at a slower pace, they still enjoy traveling and going on adventures.
In addition to being a vehicle enthusiast, Kenny also enjoys motorcycles. Growing up he had a Harley Davidson motorcycle, and works on bikes to this day. Over the years, he has collected motorcycle signs, and plans on displaying them in his new barn.
Their DIY pole barn provides them with beautiful storage for an RV, boat, and tractor. Kenny has further plans of adding a workbench in the barn. This will allow him to work on his tractors and other side projects, while having plenty of room.
