Barn Plans Store

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?

Wouldn't it be great if you could build a great traditional barn with some simple tools and basic know how?

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.


3 Ways to Save Big Money

Use Local Lumber

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.

Use Your Own Lumber

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!

What Does All This Cost?

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.

How can we offer these barn plans at such a low price?

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.
