Moving service panel to pole barn

I have a question for anyone that may have experience with this. I have a manufactured home that I have been remodeling. The main electrical service meter/panel is on a pole 10 ft from the house (L&I rules, I think). I am going to build a shop, and this Elec. service pole is right in the middle of the proposed shop's roll up door. I will need to move this somewhere, and I am wondering if it is allowable to just relocate it and attach the panel/meter to the side of the shop instead of relocating the pole to another part of the yard? The shop will be a Pole Barn and I believe that would be considered a permanent structure, right?
Appreciate any help.

Moving service panel to pole barn

There should not be any problem with that.
The panel in the barn will be the main panel and the panel in the house will be a sub panel needing a four wire feed from the barn panel.


Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
