Barn Hardware DIY Kits  

What if I love these awesome traditional post and beam barn designs, but I live outside of your shipping zone for a full kit?  

What if I have lots of trees on my property and want to build one of these barns with my own lumber?  

These are two of the most frequent questions we get here at Barngeek.com.  We have heard you, and we have a solution....

Introducing Our new Barn Hardware DIY kits!

We have put together all the hardware, special tools, and jigs, you need to build that majestic post and beam barn you have been dreaming of!  All the bolts, plates, brackets, and timber screws are there.  Along with that we also include a beam saw, and special jigs for cutting every angle on your frame!  

Included in your DIY kit are.....

Solid Steel Plate Timber Brackets


These T-Plate timber brackets are made from 1/4" thick steel, cut on a cnc plasma machine.  They have 9/16 inch main holes and 1/4 inch holes for temporary assembly screws.  Also included in your kit are bolts and lock nuts needed to install these brackets. They are powder coated black standard, but other finish options are available, just ask.  

These plates make it easy to connect timbers together.  This makes for an extremely strong joint, and an extremely strong modern timber frame.

Check out the video below to see just how easy these are to install!  

Solid Steel Post Anchor Brackets

This Post Anchor bracket is made from 1/4" thick steel, cut on a cnc plasma machine.  It has 9/16 inch main holes and 1/4 inch holes for temporary assembly screws. Also included in your kit are bolts, and lock nuts.  

 They are powder coated black standard, but other finish options are available, just ask.  

These brackets make it easy to connect your post to your foundation.  This makes for an extremely strong anchor, and an extremely strong modern timber frame barn.  If the old timers had these available 150 years ago, they would have used them to build their barns.  

Check out the video below to see just how easy these are to install!  


Rigid Structural Timber Screws

These screws are the secret to building a post and beam barn at low cost. 

They drive deep into the timbers and they hold tight!  Most of the timber joints in a modern post and beam barn are held together with these awesome screws.  Included in your kit are various sizes depending on the design of your barn.  

All of the screws you need to hold the timber frame of your barn together are included in your hardware kit.  You will need to provide your own fasteners for your board and batten siding, roof sheathing, etc.  

Timber Angle Cutting Jigs 

Click image to enlarge.

Included in your Hardware DIY kit are timber angle cutting jigs.  These jigs are made to attach to your timbers with screws, and provide a guide for not only laying out the angle needed on your timber, but also to guide your saw, so that you can have the most accurate cut possible!  

Accurate cuts make for a tight frame, and a tight frame is a strong frame.

These jigs take the guess work out of laying out your angles, unless you know what you are doing it is easy to lay out an angle wrong with conventional methods.  Why take that chance?  Be certain of your cuts every time, and eliminate costly mistakes.  

A Prazi Beam Saw with Power Head 

Not many saws are made for cutting thick timbers, and the ones that are often come with a big price tag.  These Prazi beam saws are perfect for cutting those timbers, and we include one in your DIY kit!  Not only that but we also include a name brand quality power head!  This is the saw we recommend for the average do it yourself-er.  

Just use caution, chain saw technology can be dangerous, if you are not comfortable using the saw please ask someone with experience running these types of tools.
