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!

10 thoughts on “24×36 Gambrel Barn Home”
This frame is SO good looking!
I really would like to build one, but the building code in my area sets a maximum height of 21′ 4″ so I would either have to make a lower first floor, or reduce the gambrel both of which would disturb the nice proportions of the building.
Could you program make it 5 or 10% smaller? that way it would still be possible to build according to plans instead of manually doing it and risking to mess up several times.
Thank you for your comments on this frame. If you are interested in us adjusting it for you, please visit our custom design page and fill out the questionnaire.
Are you able to convert the measurements to the metric system?
Liz, we don’t have that one in metric at the moment. We are happy to convert it for you. I will send you an email to start that process with you.
is the total footprint 24×36? or is that the footprint of the gambrel barn excluding the shed roof?
That plan come in two versions: one to accept your wall cladding and fit on a 24×36 foundation, and one without cladding. The one without measures 24’x36′ from outside to outside of the posts PLUS 12′ for the shed area. The one designed for cladding measures 22′-11 3/4″ x 34′-11 3/4″ outside of the posts PLUS 12′-6 1/8″ for the shed.
Do you have drawings for basement / slab requirement
Not in the stock set, but we can add that with our custom design service.
