Barn Building FAQs

What experience do you have with building barns and post frame buildings?

The owner and operator of D Cross Barn Co., Eddie Daggett, has been in the post frame building business since 1993 and has over 35 years of experience in the housing and construction industry.

What areas do you build?

Although we are based in Tulsa, OK we can build throughout Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Colorado, Arkansas, and Missouri.

Where can I see examples of your work in my area?

Coming soon a “Recent Projects” feature in our website where you can search by area and type of building. Although, odds are we have built something in your area. Call us for more specifics.

Are your prices competitive?

Yes, all our barns and buildings are priced comparably to other national and local post-frame building companies. We are not the cheapest barn builder around, because we don’t settle for less than the highest quality product and service you deserve.

Can you give me a rough price to construct a building?

Each D Cross Barn Co. building is a custom building based on your location and needs. Unlike other post-frame building companies who only offer a few predetermined designs, D Cross barn Co. design options are endless.

Do you build commercial buildings and barns?

Yes, we build commercial buildings such as storage buildings, gymnasiums, workshops and churches.

Do you build houses?

Yes, many people are interested in workshops/living quarters combinations or cabins/retreats.

What is the minimum and maximum dimensions of the building you can build?

The dimensions below are for standard designs. For custom designs these dimensions can be exceeded – please call for more details.
Width: minimum = 10’ maximum = 80’ (we can build wider, depending on other aspects of the building.)
Length: minimum = 10’ maximum = no max
Height: minimum = 6’ maximum = 24’

The widest clear span we can build without middle posts is 80’.

What gauge of steel do you use?

29 gauge and 26 gauge. Although all our trim is 26 gauge, most of our competitors is the thinner 29 gauge.

What size lumber do you use?

2×6 wall girts, 2×10 headers

Do I need a concrete foundation?

No, a concrete foundation is not required for all of our building foundation systems. One of our foundations features columns that are set in the ground, which gives the option of pouring a concrete floor after the building is up.

Can I use an existing concrete foundation?

Possibly. When we visit the building site we can determine if the foundation can be reused.

Do you pour your own concrete?

Yes we do. We can pour concrete slabs, driveways and walkways, thus saving you money and time.

Do you offer general contracting services (electrical, plumbing, interior finishing)?

No, our focus is on building the structure of the building and leave it to the owner to find their selected contractor to get these specific tasks done.

What finishes do you offer (shingles, insulation)?

Our options are endless to customize your barn or post frame building!

How long does it take to build a typical post-frame building or barn?

Depending on weather and the complexity of the building, the building construction process ranges from a few days to a few weeks.

How long does it take from ordering the building to materials arriving on site?

It can take anything from 4 days to 4 weeks, depending on demand and building complexity.
