4 Things to Consider when Building a Barn Plan – The Garage Plan Shop

Outbuilding Plan 051B-0003If you are planning to build a barn plan this spring or summer for your farm, ranch or another property, there are a few things to consider before you choose a barn plan or blueprint. Take some time to think about the purpose of your barn before buying blueprints. This list will help you:

 

  1. Size and Space – How large do you need your barn to be, and how much space do you have to work with? The size of your lot or the purpose of your barn might determine what size barn you build.
  2. Function – How do you plan to use the barn? Will you need animal stalls? Room to store heavy equipment like tractors, wagons, and combines? Do you need a place to store feed or hay for your animals?
  3. Finished Space – Do you need any finished space in your barn as living quarters for farmhands, office space to run your livestock business, or just a place to eat lunch?
  4. Special Features – Depending on how you plan to use your barn might influence if it has any special features. Do you need a full bathroom? Do you need an aisle with barn doors on either end to make it easy to pull the tractor into the barn? Do you need a loft for storage?

 

Determining these items before you begin searching for a barn blueprint will help get your blueprint search off to a good start. Browse our outbuilding collection to see the many barns we have to offer
