Basic Barn Designs

Gambrel

Our Gambrel Barn Plans 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 plans come with all the construction drawings needed to build your barn. It includes a full materials list. These designs come in many sizes including 22x30, 30x50, and 40x60.

Gable

Our Gable barns are inspired by the high pitch gable barns found in western Michigan.

The Gable has a 10/12 pitch roof and comes with a materials list and construction plans.

Hightop Horse Barn

These High Top barn is 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!

Our Teton Barn is inspired by the majestic antique barns of the Teton National Forest.
