24×36 Timber Frame Barn Home Plan

Is it a barn or is it a barn home? The choice is yours with this versatile 24x36 timber frame barn home plan!  Three bays on two levels create a total of 1,728 square feet to shape into whatever suits your needs. Add windows and doors to correspond to the rooms you create, or you could even add dormers to bring in extra light to the second floor space.  The second level ceiling soars to almost fifteen feet above the floor, creating a dramatic, spacious interior. Or if you choose, you can floor in all or part of the area above the upper bent girth for a storage attic.  The first level could become more living space, or a workshop or garage – or a bit of both! If you have a sloping lot, you could even modify the plans to create a walkout basement with the first level.

We have designed the frame so you can have a 4x walls mounted to the exterior of the frame and keep your foundation at a true 24x36 making the construction process easier and more efficient.  

The plan set includes 4 pages of 2D and 3D drawings and 33 pages of piece drawings, showing every cut to be made on every timber.  There is also a timber list to make it easy to acquire your lumber, and a production list itemizing each member of the frame, and tying each item into the piece drawings. The drawings are formatted in PDf so you download them instantly once you make your purchase. And they are sized to print on 24'x36” paper, so you can print them at a local office supply store and see everything clearly.

          Yes, when you purchase the plan you can only use it for one building, if you build it again you need to return and purchase the plan again.

    Is this plan based on 10×10 timbers?

    • Katrina Williams June 11, 2018 at 12:08 pm #

      The posts are 8×8, the girts, purlins and plates are 8×10, then joists and rafters are 6×8 and the knee braces are 4×6
