Our Gambrel Barn kits are inspired by old Gambrel barns found in Gratiot County Michigan.
The Gambrel roof came into popularity after the Civil War. Many farmers replaced the Gable roof on there barn with a Gambrel roof to allow for more hay loft storage space.
So what does this mean for you?
More head room and the maximum amount of storage for your things.
The Gambrel roof barn is truly an all American Barn.
Your Gambrel barn kit comes standard with all the construction materials needed to build your barn. It includes a full loft and stairs package. These designs come in many sizes including 24x30, 36x40, and 48x60.
Our Gable barn is inspired by the high pitch gable barns found in western Michigan.
The Gable has a 10/12 pitch roof and comes with a full loft and stairs package.
Everything you need to build your Gable post and beam barn kit is included except the foundation, roofing and nails.
These High Top barn designs are the perfect barns for all your horses and other livestock.
It includes 16' high center with loft for hay storage.
With 2 sliding doors on the Gable ends you can drive a tractor or skid steer all the way through making cleaning and feeding a breeze.
Store your hay above and drop bales down when it is time to feed.
Close one of the stalls off and make a tack room with an entry door to the outside.
The possibilities are endless with this classic! There is a reason our forefathers had horse barns like these....
They just made life easier!
