These 20x40 Gable Barn Plans blend traditional good looks with modern ease of construction. This barn design has 1' overhangs and features a strong roof to resist heavy snow. This barn design also features a 14x30 lean to for tons of extra storage space. Use the extra space for wood storage for your wood shop. Turn it into a nice wood drying kiln, with some clear panels on the roof it can even be a solar powered wood kiln!
These Barn Plans include a 20' wide clear span. In this configuration you have many options available to you. The most obvious would be to use the barn to house animals, or create a nice workspace. With a loft in this barn design you can enjoy tons of extra storage space without compromising your work space.
With a full loft you can enjoy a total of 800 square feet of space above, that regular pole barn designs just don't offer. Use it to store hay, or an out of the weather place to hide out after chores. Sometimes you just want to get away from everything, shut off that cell phone and lay back in the hay. Doesn't that sound relaxing? The sweet smell of the hay and the sound of the gentle blowing of the horses interrupted by the cackling of that Rhode island red hen announcing to the world the arrival of a freshly lain egg.
These are full construction 20x40 Gable Barn Plans that you can build this barn from. Plus you will also get included with these plans my ebook titled How to Build Your Post and Beam Barn. The book takes you through the whole construction process step by step, including information about securing local timbers, finding the right contractors, and preparing your site.
