    Hello All,

    Has anyone dealt with this compnay?

    http://www.diypolebarns.com/

    I am thinking about buying the 30x40 kit from them as they ar the cheapest place I could find. But cheapest doesnt always mean good, so I was wondering if anyone has worked with them, and what they though of thier product?

    If not these guys, do you have any suggestions of places to get a inexpesive pole barn kit? They seem to have gotten awfull expensive.

    Thanks.
    Matt

    mattg,
    we are looking at building a pole barn this summer and have found this site:

    http://socketsystems.com/

    You may want to price out your lumber and sheathing locally and see if it would be more cost effective to buy your components seprately. I would imagine a lot would depend on the $$$ of materials in your area.

    .....................If it is possible to obtain a bill of materials , I would do a cost workup by checking local prices and see how the two compare . If this kit is being truck freighted from a considerable distance and the Price is very LOW I would want to have a clear understanding of the Quality of the individual components that makeup the "kit" . Once it arrives it's TOO late to change your mind . fordy.. :eek: :)
