Post Frame or Pole Barn?
Jan 14, 2009
I live in Virginia and watch your programs many Saturday or Sunday mornings. I am a contractor for over 37 years that has built many farm buildings. We specialize in Equine facilities. You can see many of our buildings on our website pjwco.com.
On a recent program, during your comments, you mentioned something about pole barns. I was surprised that you would not refer to them by the more modern title of Post Frame buildings. There is an Association of us called the National Frame Building Association. I have been a member of the NFBA for 33 years. I/we the association would like you to refer to the buildings, barns, or what have you as Post Frame buildings.
This past Saturday you had a story on Tom Farms. The buildings shown in that piece are Post Frame. I'm sure they, the Tom's, would not like their buildings called pole barns. Just a thought, constructive, I hope. That is the way it is intended. I plan to continue to enjoy your show.
