I am adding a 10ft lean-to, porch, carport type of thing to the front of my shop. Its going to be the full 50ft length of the shop. I would rather use round posts (like utility poles) than standard dimensional lumber (4x4, 6x6) thats available at lumber yards. I think the poles would fit the look of what im going for better than the posts. Should I expect to spend more on round poles then I would for square posts? How much more? Are there any disadvantages to going with poles over posts?
