Open Sided Buildings

A workflow-friendly and cost-friendly option.

If your farm is growing, then you know what that means: more equipment, more machinery—and more storage needs. But for many farmers, an FBi Buildings open-sided building gives them more for less.

An open-sided pole barn can offer lower maintenance costs because there are fewer components to maintain in an enclosed structure.

You also have easier access to your equipment and machinery, which can improve your farm’s workflow for maximum efficiency.

Although less means more with open-sided construction, we never cut corners.

We use only company-employed crews and the best materials to complete every job on time and with excellence. And you can count on us to be there from start to finish, even providing expert guidance in zoning permitting and financing. It’s the FBi Buildings’ collaborative approach that separates us from the rest.


Integrity, collaboration and experience—it’s all part of what separates us from the rest.

I have been involved with [other] construction projects. I found this was by far the best ever! From the salesman, the project manager to the crew foreman and the crew. I found them to be top notch!
