Construction & Finishes:

This building is designed to provide you with inexpensive storage space, the look of a traditional country outbuilding and the best quality modern construction. All of the materials shown on the illustrations are just suggestions. This building can be constructed with any of a variety of exterior finishes and details so that it can match your home or other buildings on your property.

 

These downloadable plans are designed for post-frame construction. That's the modern version of "pole-barn" construction using pressure treated 6x6 posts as the main structure and post hole and concrete pad footings. Post-frame construction eliminates the need for full foundations and can save you as much as 20% of the cost of construction by reducing the amount of site work and concrete needed. These plans and post-frame construction in general are not suitable for steeply sloped sites.

 

Loft floor construction is by conventional wood joists. Roofs are framed with wood rafters, not space-wasting trusses. Loft gable-end walls are framed with wood studs. Grade level floors can be gravel, tamped earth, or concrete. Concrete floor slabs must be poured after the posts are standing.

 

What the Drawings Include:

The construction drawings include floor plans, general specifications, exterior elevations, building sections, large scale details, dimensions and engineering standards for all framing and footings. Your download of the drawings gives you permission to build one unit of the copyrighted design, or to have the basic design used as a starting point for a customized design by your architect, construction engineer or contractor.

 

Since the drawings are for utilitarian storage spaces, they don't include details for insulation, interior finishes, electricity or plumbing. If needed, these can be added by a local building professional.

 

Do-it-yourself?:
The drawings are intended for experienced builders and use standard methods, abbreviations and symbols. They do not include step-by-step building directions. This building is not recommended for first-time builders. It is recommended that it be constructed by contractors who are familiar with post-frame building methods.
