Has anyone here had any experience with building and/or living in pole frame houses, as opposed to stick-frame buildings?

That's interesting! He'd only have exterior windows on 2 sides, however, wouldn't he? Does he have any windows on the interior sides? Is the balcony OUTSIDE or inside the rest of the building?Oxankle said:My neighbor just built a home in a pole building.
First he built a 40 x 50 pole building l6 feet high. (He is retired and the building has to house his motor home and shop as well)
Next he laid out an apartment in one quarter of the building, built conventional walls and second story. Has a two-story living room, kitchen/dining area and small bath downstairs, bedrooms, balcony and bath upstairs. Skin is metal, doors metal covered. Once inside it is a conventional home, sheetrock, carpet, wiring, lighting, etc.
