Building Construction Details

Standard Features


Fetterville Sales has many standard features we build into our post construction buildings. As you consider the design and size of your structure, you can help keep your building cost effective by using Standard Lengths and Widths. See chart and diagrams below.

Our pole buildings can be built in almost any size. You determine the size that fits your needs. However, working with “typical” increments is economically beneficial to you. The most common widths and lengths can be found in the chart below. Ceiling heights typically come in 8′, 10′, 12′, 14′, and 16′ heights.

After you’ve determined your commercial pole building, pole barn garage, equestrian barn, or agricultural building size, your building site should be graded to prepare the site. The site should be graded a minimum of 3′ larger all the way around the building. Ex: a 30′ x 40′ building should have a leveled area 36′ x 46′. It is highly recommended that you have your site graded well before the building is built.

Optional Roof Truss Styles


Standard Roof Trussess are 4/12 pitch, but we have several to options to choose from including Attic, Gambrell Attic, Scissor and Carriage Style.

Flush and Overhang on Eaves and Gables
