  1. Do you happen to have any pictures of any of these finished? I would like to see how you would go about finishing them out.

      Hello James – The dimensions are 8′-4″ from the foundation to the bottom of the tie beam, and 6-0 1/2″ from the top of the tie beam to the collar tie.

  2. Hello I was wondering if this type of design could be 24’x36’. Was was looking at the barn and I think it would be to high with the top floor being 15’ to the peak this style here you say is 6’ to the peak from the second floor.

  3. On the loft joists, I assume they are joined as dovetail joints for the inner joists but the outermost joists — how are they joined to the posts?

    1. Matthew Stevens

      All of the rafters are housed into the beams/posts 3/4 to 1″ and are secured with a structural screw. I do not recommend the dovetail at the end of a joist. As the timbers dry, the timbers dry away from each other weakening the joints.

    hi,
    is the price for the plan the same if you supply it as ben requests in the above post?

    Looking to build something similar, but 16 x 36, 1-1/2 story – could these plans be modified accordingly?
    regards
