Creative Uses for a Post Frame Building

When it comes to creating a building from the ground up, the first thing it has to be is functional. If you’re constructing a new school, for example, the appropriate spaces must be built in order make sure the student’s needs are met and they can learn in the best possible environment. A new grocery store must have the right amount of square footage in order to stock the appropriate food and supplies the population needs to sustain itself. Even an office building like the one you are working in now must be carefully designed and planned to ensure that the company that is housed there can effectively do their jobs to maximum efficiency. 

But functional doesn’t have to mean uninspired or dull; on the contrary, being innovative and adding some adventure and beauty to any structure is just as important as making it do the things that it needs to do. A new building should add excitement to any neighborhood and any town it resides in; gone are the days where lifeless spaces are popping up out of the ground. This is the time where creativity is truly thriving in the world of construction and architecture.

While innovation is being embraced in today’s culture, some tried and true construction methods are still heavily embraced. This especially is true when it comes to post-frame construction or an engineered wood-frame building system that features large posts or laminated columns instead of wood studs and steel framing. But even what’s familiar can be reinvented. Now, it really transforms into how to make this familiar structure and put new uses to it. 

Here are a few of our unique uses for a post-frame building:

A Home Gym
One of the many advantages of the post-frame structure is that it provides ample space, no matter what the space is intended for. Sounds like exactly what is needed to make the perfect home gym. After all, you need plenty of room to store your treadmills, elliptical machines, exercise bikes, and your strength training weights-the more room to move you have, the better your workout is sure to be!

Your Workshop or Garage
If you are working on your motorcycle or finishing a car repair, no matter what your project of choice is, you’ll need plenty of open space in order to effectively work. A post-frame workshop is an ideal structure to house activities like these and many more for your home’s garage or your personal workshop. 

Man Caves and She-Sheds

With the constant chaos that occupies our personal and professional lives, who doesn’t need a retreat to escape to? What’s even better about that escape is that it can be within the confines of our own home or yard! This is why many people choose to build she-sheds and man caves within their homes-it’s a place to relax and unwind after a quiet day, and have a room where you can totally and unapologetically be yourself. If constructing a man-cave or she-shed is in your sights, then a post-frame structure is the perfect combination of style and functionality.
