Why Holmes Lumber and Post Frame Make Sense...
The old “pole barn” has come a long way since its storage shed beginnings. Today we’re using post frame technology to build homes, office buildings, airplane hangars, or just about any kind of building imaginable. New engineering data confirms what many professional contractors have known for years—post frame is a viable method of construction.
Personal attention and accurate on-time delivery are just two of the reasons publications like Rural Builder and Frame Building News have recognized Holmes Lumber as being among the top suppliers of post frame building materials in the midwest.
Holmes Lumber is a member of the National Frame Builders Association. That means we follow the accepted standards and guidelines of the most respected group of post frame building professionals in the business.
Try one of our packaged post frame building plans or, better yet, let us custom design one for you, to your exact specifications. Making sure the right materials get to the job site on schedule is the hallmark of Holmes Lumber service. After all, who knows the materials better than the people who designed the building?
