Lofts are an easy-to-add option within post frame structures, so it is important to highlight some of the possibilities. After all, once you have used all that free and clear floor space, why not make better use of the clear overhead room you still have? Let’s look at uses of a loft in post frame buildings.
There are usually ways to add essential elements to your post frame building without interfering with its most important function, whether for agricultural, equestrian, automotive, or other purposes. Loft spaces are an addition that adds function without detracting from the principal purpose of the building.
What is a Loft?
In a post frame building, owners have space to create an upper room or loft on one side. This will not interfere with the main function of the building and just requires a basic stairway leading to it. It may be fully enclosed or have an open view of the space below, as necessary.
Adding a Loft in Post Frame Buildings
- Agricultural Buildings
So you have planned space for your tractors, attachments, and all the other equipment you need to bring in and out of the building.
But, how can you make the building even more functional? Perhaps an office or room to get away from everything to work on paperwork and other items will be helpful. Or you may want the space above to store lightweight items that you don’t use frequently and can be easily transported.
- Equestrian Buildings
Equestrian buildings require more than just space for the horses. A tack and equipment room is a necessity, and you may want a washroom and office or relaxing space. A larger post frame building may even have an exercise area.
If you are looking for a space to work and relax, an upstairs loft area provides the room you need. You can include an office with a bathroom or a recreation area complete with a TV or other electronics to escape from the rest of the building.
You might even add a changing room to your loft for dressing before and after riding. This helps to keep the smell and dirt away from your primary residence.
- Automotive Workshop and Other
Creating a loft in your workshop is a great way to keep grease in the building rather than your home. Consider adding a bathroom with an area for washing and changing. You may even want to consider a laundry area to clean dirty clothes in the building.
Adding an office or perhaps a fun room can be an excellent investment. If you have trophies from competitions, this is a great place to set up and display those as well.
