40x60 Gambrel Barn Plans

These 40x60 Gambrel 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 split loft for a great view of events going on below.  Just imagine what you could do with a loft like that!     

Features of this Barn Plan

  1. 16' interior clear span. 
  2. 10' to 25' Clearance on the lower level!
  3. 5' 2" to 14' Clearance in the loft.      
  4. It has a classic Gambrel pitch and a massive central cathedral for a dramatic effect.     
  5. Steel plate joinery for extra strength.     
  6. Heavy Timber Construction and extra wide posts and beams.                                                                                                                                                        

These Barn Plans include a 16' wide clear span. In this configuration you have many options available to you. The most obvious would be to use the barn to have guests over to enjoy the space with you, perhaps you have a daughter or son who would love to get married in a barn like this? Or you could create a nice workshop.... You know that one you always wanted but couldn't quite justify.... but if you can have a space where the kids get married, then later you can turn it in to a workshop.... Just imagine that kind of Shop!  With the loft in this barn design you can enjoy tons of extra storage space without compromising your work space.    

40x60 Gambrel Barn Plans with a split loft...

With a split loft you can enjoy a ton 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.
