Featured Outbuilding Plan: Horse Barn with Farmhand Quarters – The Garage Plan Shop

Outbuilding Plan 051B-0002While the farmhand may be a position traditionally overlooked, this featured barn plan includes amenities to make sure that the animals won’t be the only ones with a place to relax. Living quarters boasting a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and a kitchen, assures space for either a residing farmhand or perhaps simply a place for a welcome respite between the morning and afternoon chores. This outbuilding design also offers nine stalls to house animals including one with garage door access allowing for storage of a small tractor or truck with easy accessibility. A tack room allows for storage of animal supplies such as feed and medicine along with a sink and counter that can double as a workbench for the farmer who is looking to fix rather than to replace. The loft and attic on the second level offer additional storage for not only farm equipment and supplies but for those items in your house that may have been making it feel more like a barn than a home.
