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 plan, siding and roof area takeoffs, a trim schedule, door and window schedules, section views, trim details, and other related details. This 24' x 36' Barn is perfect for any property. It uses simple mortise and tenon joinery making it easy to cut for anyone with a few common tools. It features three large door openings across the front to easily accommodate vehicles or other equipment.  Along the left side we have a "man door" opening framed in for easy access.  The rest is ready for you to make this barn your own with its unlimited possibilities.  The frame is made up with 8x8 posts, 8x12 plate beams, 8x8 tie beams, 4x8 rafters, 4x6 overhang rafters, 2x8 collar ties, 4x4 wall plates, 4x6 knee braces, 3x8 sill plate covers, and a 3x10 ridge board.  Let us help you get started today with these plans!
