Pole barn for RV

I am considering putting up a building to store my Monaco. Does anyone have any idea the cost per sq/ft to build a pole barn probably 16x56 ?

My 16 x 48 "addition" to an existing barn cost $9800 including a 14x14 roll up door with commercial electric opener. That included ground work, clear plastic lighting panels on one side and insulation under the roofing.

I did my own gravel sub base for concrete but haven't poured the floor yet. Just parking on the gravel right now.

I also did my own electric, including a 50 AMP box for the MH.

I spent about $200 for the gravel and $400 for the electric.

My 24x48 with 15 foot ceiling, 4 windows, one exterior door and a 14x14 roll up door cost $14200.00. The roll up door was extra. I purchased it through the Steel Door Depot. I did the electric work and the concrete has not been poured yet. The Amish Labor charge was $4600.00 and the rest was the materials. They built it in 3 days.

If you're just looking to shelter your rig, get it out of the rain and sun, you might consider something that Carolina Carport sells. Their prices include delivery and erection on your level sight/pad. Normally you'll be led to a local dealer for them, and that person will handle your permits. Very affordable, thus popular option in the southern states, though they're supposed to be available in versions that will handle considerable snow load - but not sure how that affects pricing. At that point they might not be able to compete with a truss type structure.

Carolina Carports - Homepage

Note that these are sold under different brand names - but will be delivered and installed through this company.

What ever you get, I'd recommend including sides. Without sides, your roof will be the only thing protected. The sun will get the sides and tires during the day...making it nearly as hot as if it was outside. BTDT.

I just completed an 18X60 wood frame/steel sides and roof. 14x14 roll up door, two 3' walk through doors and 16' high sidewalls. Building was 13k, concrete and associated dirt work was 9K, and elect was 3K. That was 50 amp service brought from my shop, six outlets (three down each side) and eight 8' florescent light fixtures (four per side mounted horizontally about 7' off the floor). Sure is nice to have the coach finally stored inside.

Looking for one myself. Look under Farmtec, and clearspan also. I agree with everyone on complete coverage to the ground, and garage doors.

I am breaking ground on the 15th for a Morton building 52lx42w with 16' insulated walls and ceiling. I am putting nice finishes to include a copula with 2 14x14 doors. The roadway will be 180 feet with underground utilities. I am putting 50/30/120 amp hookups inside and outside with water hookups also inside and out. I will have a 6 inch slab inside with a center drain inside. Total cost- 72500.00 for the building and roughly 15000.00 for the road (21a). I will post pictures when available. Not cheap but I plan on being here a very long time. Heat will eventually be installed as well. Still considering what type.
Another option without insulation on walls and ceiling is approximately 20000.00 less for shell only.
Although expensive this is turn key pricing for a very good quality building.
Hope this helps. Good luck with your decisions. Any cover is better than no cover.

There are a TON of options when it comes to Carolina carports. They'll build anything you want, and supply engineering drawings to certify it for permitting purposes. Don't let the "carport" part of their name mislead you....

I leveled my own building pad, had a 20x36x9 erected (w/3 sides, as seen in pic), and used brick pavers on top of a compacted clay/sand mix - for less than 5k. The 2 guys showed up on site at 7:00 am and were done/gone (with 2 more buildings to do that day!) by 11:30am. This place has the high wind certification as well. It's 11 miles from here to the Gulf of Mexico.

Who did you get the building from ? That's about the size I was looking for.

I priced several manufactures to include Morton. They were the most with the least. I had the Omish build my barn to match a barn on Morton site making it similar to what i could see in the pictures. For the same build through Morton for a 42 x 60 they wanted $96000 for what they called the shell... No electrical, no concrete, no lights nothing just the shell with insulation. I told them to pack sand. I got mine built with all the stuff I wanted and more for $88000. See pics
