How to beat the Oregon Rain :: Pole Barn transformations

by JT Woods on 03/18/15

It is without a doubt that the Pacific Northwest has some of the best summer weather to enjoy the great outdoors. Oregon summers bring great opportunities for outdoor recreation as the sun comes out; temperatures rise; and it becomes a mecca for hiking, camping, boating, and other outdoor activities.

But what do you do during the off season? The days when the rain won't stop, the wind keeps blowing, and the temperatures continue to drop? Coping with those darker days of winter can be a challenge, especially for Portland's large outdoorsy population.  

One solution to turn those tiring and depressing days around is to create an indoor facility where one can continue to be active despite the glum weather outside. Many in Oregon are realizing that pole buildings (or pole barns) are more than just a shop or a structure to house your animals. A pole building is an affordable option to create a recreational room to enjoy year round.

Once the structure is put in place, the sky is the limit on how you choose to transform your pole building. Individuals have converted their space into a home gym, a recreational room for kids, a skateboard park, an indoor basketball court, a man cave, a hobby room, a game room, and a covered pool area.

We challenge you to think outside the box and to come up with ideas on how you can transform your pole building into a space that you can enjoy during those long, wet winter days.
