It's time to sit down with Martin Contracting LLC and let them know what you want your new home to look like, and what are the must have's.  Make a list so you don't forget what you really want.  You could put on your list, some of your wishes if they fit your budget

The List

check list

Let's start with the important things that you MUST have in your new home.  Everyone needs a Kitchen, so what kind of kitchen do you want.  Do you want one that is an open concept so that you can look out through the family room.  So when you are cooking you can still be part of the family.  Do you want an island so that you have a nice big work area to work from?  How about a Pantry?  Or maybe an eat in kitchen?  You know you definitely want a fireplace so on cold winter night you can have a fire and sit around watching a movie and eating popcorn.

Master Bedroom

Master Bedroom let's keep that on the first floor, so that when we get older we don't have to climb steps.  Of course we want separate walk in closets, and a big bathroom with a soaking tub, and a shower.  Can we say double sinks please?

Working from home?  

Home Office

You are working from home.  That's great.  This means a Home Office is a must have.  If your like me, you need a lot of storage, and bookcases.  So let's have that all built in.  Then you will know where everything is.

Laundry Room / Mud Room

Mud Room
Laundry Room

Your Laundry room needs to be on the main floor, maybe right off the kitchen in the Mud room.  This way your family can put there dirty clothes right in the hamper so that they can get washed.  Without tracking mud all through the house.  Maybe we can put a spot in there so that we can give the dog a bath, without putting the dog into the bathtub!  Not that's a great idea.

The Basement

This should be chosen when you have decided to build your home.  Does your lot allow for a walk out basement?  Or are you going to use your basement for a living area?  Maybe have a second kitchen with a large Family Game Room?  

Basement Kitchen

Since you will have a basement, this would be the perfect place to put your mechanical room.  Hot Water Heater, or On Demand Hot Water Heater.  Your furnace, and Electrical panel.

Basement Family Room

But you will have left over room, so let's turn it into a family room/game room!  Maybe let's add a bedroom and bathroom.



So as you see, we can customize your home for you.  All you need to do is sit down with us and let us know what you want in your home. 

We will do our best to accommodate all of your request, for building your dream home.  This is why we here at Martin Contracting LLC like to sit down with you, and then have plans drawn up.  If you change your mind that you don't like where something is, then we can change it.

Looking for an alternative to a stick-built home or a modular home?  A Pole Barn Home my be the best fit for you.  Their are so many options out there with an affordable price and modern design.  Before you jump in an start building, it's really important to educate yourself on living in a pole building.

What Makes a Pole Barn Home different from a Conventional Home?

As you may have guessed pole barns are traditionally an agriculture building.  They serve as an affordable building for farmers to store all of their equipment in.  However Pole Barn Homes are taking over.

The main difference between a Pole Barn and a Conventional Home, a Pole Building doesn't have a foundation.  A foundation is one of the biggest cost to building your home.

Technically most modern pole bars fall in the metal building category.  Fun Fact:  There are so many different options to choose from for colors.  These structures are easy to build, and their metal exterior makes them highly durable.  Pole Barn home look just like any other home, but they use Poles instead of a foundation.

The Benefits of a Pole Barn Home

No load bearing walls.  Unlike a regular house pole barn homes have no load-bearing walls.  This means you can do just about anything you want with the interior of the home.  You're only limited by your imagination when it comes time to customize your home's interior.  This is why you need to sit down with Martin Contracting LLC so that they can help you.

Open Floor Plan

Pole barn homes have an open floor plan, and I do mean open.  You can design the inside of your home anyway that you want to.  Which makes them extremely versatile and easy to customize.  They also feel bigger and more open because of there are fewer interior walls. 

Cheaper to Build

The most obvious benefit to building a pole barn home is that it is far less expensive than a conventional home.  Pole barns require less material to build, they don't have a foundation which is costly.  

Inside Design

You can choose where you want to put everything, and you can leave it as open as you want. Now let's talk about the steps in building your pole building.

Steps in Building a Pole Barn


The first step is to prepare the site for you building.  Start by clearing the are (if necessary) removing trees and anything that would prevent you from putting up your structure

At this stage you will want to lay all of the electrical connections as well as thee plumbing.  This means digging a well and putting in your septic in place.

Pouring the Slab

Pouring Concrete

The next step is to pour the concrete slab. The supporting beams must be in place first before you can pour the concrete slab.  Also if you are going to have radiant heat in your floors the tubing must be laid out.  Once your concrete has set, then we can move on.



The next step is to add the framing.  The framing will be attached to the poles that have been set.  At this stage, the pole barn framing is just like what you would find with a conventional home.  

Add the Siding & Roof


Next is the roof and siding.  Doing this is relatively simple and straight forward.  Pick the color of metal that you want and your done.

Once the siding and roof are in place, the exterior of the home will be nearly finished.  This is the step that your windows and doors will be installed.

Building the Interior Walls

Timber Framing

At this stage, the home is starting to come together ans will develop quickly.  So be ready to go things will go quickly here.

Final Stages

The great thing about pole barns homes is that you can place the walls where you want.  Remember none of the  walls are load-bearing.  You will be able to make the rooms as big or as small as you want to.

The only thing to remember is that some of the walls will need to match up with the electrical and plumbing that you had previously plumbed up.

You will get to choose your flooring, and installing cabinets, and put in your bathroom fixtures.  Painting, and add any other finishing touches.

These are just basic steps in building your Pole Barn Home.  This is where Martin Contractors comes in handy to help you design what you want.

A 3 car garage is what you have decided on.  This way you will have room for all of your mowers and yard tools in one of the garage spaces.



A walk out basement would be wonderful to have, this way you will be able to walk out in your back yard and enjoy your time under the covered patio.  This way you can watch the kids play and run around.

Exposed Fastener Metal Roofing

 Exposed metal roofing is a good choice because it is one of the cheaper roofing systems around because the sheets of metal are bigger so they do not have to buy so much material and the work goes much faster and the metal is thinner which make it easier to install

 Metal Shingles roofing

 With the look a real slat or shake this roofing system will dramatically increase the looks and appeal of your home. Martin Contracting LLC is so confident in their roofing system that this one has a 50 year transferable warranty, that's almost unheard of in the roofing industry.

 Standing Seam Metal Roofing

 Standing seam metal roofing is a good choice because it has no exposed fasteners which the seals of tend to get old and unseal causing water damage. This roofing system allows the roofing panels to flex with the temperature changes which means your fasteners will never break.

 Asphalt Shingles Roofing

 Shingles roofing is a good system because it is the cheapest one and it is relatively easy to install which means less expense and the usually can be applied very fast. This roofing system is also good because it looks really good and is priced really good for how long it lasts.

 Elite Rib Panel Roofing

 Martin Contracting was looking for a way to make a roofing system that was stronger then exposed fastener and less expensive then standing seam so they invented Elite rib panel roofing so you do not have to go with the most expensive or the cheapest.

 If you need a new roof please consider one of the roofing systems mentioned before and we will do our best to make this process as painless as possible. Please get one of these roofing systems your life will be so much easier.


 Standard Vinyl Siding Options

 The siding is the most important part of the home you just built so why not go with the best and the strongest and the one that requires the least amount of maintenance, right? The standard series provides all that and more, with the standard series you will get lasting durability and tensile strength that will last for years to come

Decorative Siding Options

 If you really want your home to look the greatest in the neighborhood then I would go will the decorative series that bring the quality of your home up and the maintenance down. Also the insulation factor of the decorative series is above the rest because one of the siding types has insulation between the siding, so you know your getting a good deal.

Soffit Siding Options

 The soffit series brings your home to a whole another level when it comes to looks and durability. If you want strength and beauty wrapped up in one package then this siding category is the one for you.
