The design of this 24x36 gambrel barn home plan will maximize headroom on your second floor! The frame gets its name from the characteristic dual roof pitches. Along with ample headroom down the center, you will be able to have plenty of storage in the space outside of the loft posts. There is a large dormer on the side to bring lots of light into the second level. The queen post trusses will allow you to have plenty of windows on the gambrel ends. You can use the shed roof area along the other side of the ground level as a porch, or enclose it for more square footage. This plan is designed to accept your cladding materials, as follows, and still fit onto a 24x36 foundation. You will also receive a plan designed with post-to-post measurements of 24x36!
The measurements from outside to outside of the main body posts are 34’-11 ¾” x 22-11 ¾”. This is intended to accommodate finishing with 5 1/2" studs and 5/8" furring strips behind the posts. There is a 5/8" gap for drywall to be installed after the frame is put up and the walls are installed. The porch shed projects a further 12-6 ⅛”. The loft dimensions to outside of the posts are 13 -6 ¾” x 23’-4 ⅝”.
The height to the top of the ridge is 22’-8 11/16”; to top plate is 11’-7 11/16”, to girt is 9’-4 ¾”. The roof pitch for the higher part of the gambrel is 6:12; the lower portion is 20:12. The shed roof pitch is 2.5:12
Square footages, finished as noted above: Main floor 864 sq ft; Loft approx. 315 sq ft; porch approx. 435 sq ft. Queen post trusses allow for plenty of windows on gambrel ends
