The simple post and beam line of building plans offer much more than just the structural frame plan. In addition to everything provided in our structural frame plans, we go above and beyond to show foundation plans, siding and roof area takeoffs, a trim schedule, door and window schedules, section views, trim details, and other related details. This 22' x 28' Barn features a full second story with 5'-6" Knee Wall. Other than a center post on both levels and a post for the staircase the space is open, enabling you to utilize the space in many ways. It has two large garage doors on one side with a "man door" on one gable end with an entry roof above that runs the width of the building offering great cover. The rest of the barn features several well-placed 32"x54" windows. We show this as a barn, but with a little creativity and shifting of doors and windows you can easily transform some or all the area into living space. The frame is made up with 8x8 posts, 8x12 plate beams, 8x12 Girders, 6x8 joists, 4x8 rafters, 4x6 overhang rafters, 4x4 wall plates, 4x6 wall braces, 3x8 sill plate covers, and an 8x12 ridge plate. It also has an optional gable truss accent to add a timber frame element to the exterior which is made up with all 4x6 components. Let us help you get started today with these plans!
