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.
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.
