Pole Building Experts

Sherman Lumber traces its history to 1976 when Andrew Kelling opened the doors to Kelling Construction.  Since then we have undergone a name change and we’ve expanded our scope. But we remain committed to our old-fashioned values. Through the years, Sherman Lumber has upheld a steadfast commitment to excellence in craftsmanship and customer service. We believe in building quality, functional, and attractive buildings at a reasonable price.

We have developed perhaps the greatest depth of pole building construction, or sometimes known as post frame buildings.  Sherman Pole Buildings has been raising the standard of pole building construction since the start of the business in 1976.  The company specialty is in residential, commercial, and agricultural post frame buildings and has built homes, storage buildings, sheds, airplane hangars, riding arenas, livestock barns, assembly plants, and everything in between.

Overtime we began a general contracting business for building residential and commercial buildings. In addition to being Real Estate Developers, Sherman Builders builds custom homes, both conventional and post frame (often refered to as Barndominiums, Shed Houses or Shouses.)

It is with this vast experience and wisdom that we launched our lumberyard and material supply business catering to Pole Building Contractors and do-it-yourself homeowners. We believe that we are the best there is, at equipping construction contractor partners, and we plan to invest in this effort for the long term.

As a family-owned and operated business we are committed to treating our partners like family, delivering every project to the highest standards. As a leader in our industry, we pride ourselves on our integrity, quality, and experience.

Our Core Values

We cannot say it enough, Your Success is Our Success. To help you get there and stay there, we remain committed to our old-fashioned values. Count on us for a steadfast commitment to excellence in customer service and craftsmanship advisory. We put in the work to ensure that you can build quality, functional, and attractive buildings at a reasonable price.

Our Customers, Contractors, and Partners Say

Great company to work with. I am so happy with my new pole barn. Everyone at Sherman worked together to get the job done and done right. We needed to change our color selections for the building and it was no problem. I would recommend Sherman pole building if you are looking for a quality product at a great price.

Gene and I had a great experience working with Sherman Pole Buildings in Mora, from the initial conversations with Chad, to design our pole barn, through the finished product. The entire crew was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. We are very pleased with our pole barn, and highly recommend Sherman Pole Buildings. Great job, guys! Thank you!

“Using Sherman makes my life way easier with their pricing and Ethan’s vast knowledge of construction. I can sell a building, set a delivery date and plan on everything showing up ‘right‘.”


Start to finish – working with Robin Bliss was a top notch experience. The construction crew was amazing. Our 30×30 garage was up in one day! Looking forward to our next Sherman building – a shouse!

“Working with Sherman Lumber has allowed us to take on large unfamiliar projects, that we couldn’t have otherwise.  The depth of knowledge and willingness to help me understand a particular process is simply not found anywhere else.”


Everyone was polite and respectful. The crew was very hard-working and did excellent work. We are very happy with our building so far.

I am very pleased with the building. The crew did a fantastic job and had all the extra materials in a very neat pile along with a seperate pile for the trash they had. I would highly recommend Sherman Pole Buildings for all your building needs!
