The desire to live a simpler life is one of the main reasons people move out of the city and into the country. Other motivations for a move to the country include lower population densities, wide open spaces, being closer to nature and the affordability factor. Whatever your reasons for trading in the fast-paced urban lifestyle for the peace and tranquility of the countryside, building a home that fits in with the landscape is key, and this can be achieved by choosing to build a pole home.
Unlike traditional buildings, pole homes require no foundation. Instead, its metal exterior and frame is supported by poles that are inserted into the ground.
Pole home designs are a practical and cost-effective choice for those looking to live in a rural setting for a number of reasons, such as:
1. They Leave The Ground Intact
If you are to live in a rural setting, you wouldn’t want to take away from its natural beauty. This includes the land on which your house is built. Pole homes allow you to work around your land and even showcase it, instead of tearing it apart ( which can cost you more time, effort and money). Also, there are plenty of pole home designs that accommodate sloping blocks, which are especially common in rural areas. Building a traditional home on a sloping block can be particularly expensive, making pole homes a more cost-effective alternative.
2. They Compliment The Scenery
Pole homes allow you to incorporate natural materials like wood, earth and stone that will complement its surroundings and be much more aesthetically pleasing.
3. They’re Open, Light and Airy
Most pole homes have an open design that lets in lots of natural light and air. This also enables you to cut costs on energy bills as sunlight helps naturally warm the house, and breezes cool it down by allowing air to circulate throughout the building.
If you are considering building a home in a rural area, pole homes are a budget-friendly and practical option that will give you a beautiful, cozy home that works beautifully with its surroundings.
