Here, in the barn plans store you will find traditional barn plans, just like they built in centuries past. Have you ever admired an old Gambrel barn and wished you could have one of your own? Would you like to build a traditional barn but don't know where to begin? Even for a savvy modern craftsman, a traditional post and beam barn can be a challenge. All those mortise and tenon joints, hand cut with precision, and craftsmanship that comes from years learning from a master builder. Who has time to learn all that?
That is why I developed these barn designs based on the barns of old, but with a modern twist. These barns are designed to incorporate simple joinery using modern timber framing screws and some steel plates that are just bolt in place. If you can cut simple angles with a skill saw, drill holes with an auger bit, and twist a wrench then you can build your own post and beam barn with these plans.
These post and beam barn plans are designed to utilize full size rough cut lumber. You can download your favorite set of plans and send a cut list to your local sawmill. No need to buy lumber that has been imported from who knows where, you can save money and the environment buy using rough cut lumber from a local sawmill.
Maybe you have some trees on your property that you could utilize. All you need to do is call a local portable sawmill owner, they will come out to your site and custom cut your trees to your specs so that you can build your barn with lumber from your own land! You could even buy your own portable sawmill and saw your own lumber. Think of all the money you will save by using your own lumber!
These barn floor plans are available via download-able pdf file. We can offer them at a fraction of the cost of a custom set of plans. Once you complete your purchase you can download your plans and send them on to your favorite local print shop. They will be happy to print your plans out... what a great way to support your local businesses!
A complete set of barn plans that you can print as many times as you need. You can print a set for you, your builder, and whoever else needs a copy. There is enough information on the plans for you or a contractor to build your barn from scratch. You will know exactly what size lumber you need, where to make your cuts, at what pitch, where to attach your plates and, what joints require GRK screws.
Your barn plans also come with a complete construction e-guide that details the whole building process from start to finish. You also get email and telephone support. I want your new barn project to be successful, and I will be happy to give any advice I can, to help you.
Oh, one more thing. You will be beaming with excitement and enthusiasm as you build and enjoy your new barn. You will be so proud of the fact that you did it yourself that you will want to share it with the whole world. BarnGeek.com is the perfect place to do just that. You can upload pictures of your barn and tell the story of your barn for the whole world to enjoy. Your barn will have it's very own web page right here on BarnGeek.com. Then once you build your page you can share it with all your friends on Facebook or your favorite social networking site.
Normally a set of professionally drawn set of plans like these would cost thousands of dollars. Call any Timber Frame designer and ask for a quote, you will find that prices range anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000 or more depending on the size and detail of the barn. As a matter of fact the very plans for sale on this page originally cost on average $2500 each. As you can see these plans will only cost you a mere fraction of the original cost.
The secret is technology. You see, in the old days plans where drawn up on paper by hand and they were only good for one project. Now, with computer aided drafting that same set of plans can be saved, stored digitally, and be used over and over again for multiple people doing multiple projects.
With a few clicks of the mouse you can be on your way to building the new barn you always wanted. Download your plans today and you can get started right away. Just think of how great it will feel knowing your going to finally have that barn you have always wanted. Your friends and family will be amazed at the fact that you did it yourself. You really can do it, all you need is the tools and know how that you will find here.
