Gable Pole Barn with Low Roof Pitch

Low Roof Pitch Barn

This 30'x30' wooden Gable Pole Barn is built with 5:12 roof pitch (22.62° angle).  Most of the pole barns are built with 4:12 roof pitch.  Benefit of a slightly higher roof pitch, such as the one shown here, gives the barn a nicer look and also enables the roof to be built with Scissor Type trusses to provide more headroom in the middle of a barn.
