Building a barn without a plan is like building a submarine with a screen door. Its doomed to sink! We want your barn project to be a shining success.
That's why a set of professionally drawn set of plans is included with your barn kit. You also get a step by step construction guide and telephone and email support. If you have any question at all, give us a call or email and we will be happy to answer it.
2.Post and Beam Frame.
All of your posts and beams for your frame are made with rough cut full dimension timbers and beams. A 6x6 is a full 6 inches by 6 inches. The plans that come with your kit show exactly where the beams are to be cut and the plates mounted.
Your frame consists of posts, tie beams, knee braces, collar ties, and rafter beams.
3.Girts and purlins.
Your kit includes 2x6 girts and 3x6 purlins. These timbers hold your siding and roofing in place.
4.Board and Batten siding.
Your kit comes with rough cut full dimension board and batten siding. They are 1x10 board and 1x3 battens.
Full dimension 1x8 rough sawn boards are provided with your kit for your roof sheathing.
6.Steel plates and brackets.
Your kit will come with various steel plates and brackets that are used to bolt your frame together. Using these heavy duty steel plates creates a strong joint that will last for generations. Also included are all the bolts you need to assemble your frame.
Your kit includes door hardware, along with instructions for building your barn doors.
RSS (Ridged Structural Screws) are included for joints not supported by the steel plate joinery, knee braces, girts and purlins.
What's not included and why:
Why not windows? Our focus is to make great barns, not windows. This is one product that you can get at your local lumber yard for less money than we could provide them for.
We are in the business to get you the most economical post and beam barn kit. Sure we could package them in with your kit, and inflate the price of your kit. But that is not what we are in business to do.
Our goal is to make great post and beam barn kits and make them affordable for the average American. So that more people can enjoy the American Dream.
Most of our customers choose to use a nail gun. There are so many different kinds of nail guns out there, and it seems like every one uses a different kind of nail. There is no way to make nails a standard item in a kit.
We want your barn to last for generations, that is why we recommend that you purchase steel roofing from a local source. Steel will last much longer than any shingle.
Everything else you need to build your barn is included. It is worthy to mention here that these barn kits are your basic “shell” barn kit.
Which means, everything you need to build a farm type barn is included.
