24×36 Timber Frame Barn Home Plan

Is it a barn or is it a barn home? The choice is yours with this versatile 24×36 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 24×36 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.

  1. Do you know of anyone who used yellow poplar for the 24 x 36 plan – and wondered if the beam sizes would need to be adjusted?

  2. I’ve purchased the BUNDLE and man, there are a lot of plans in there. I’ve settled on this 24×36 barn plan for our main home. I need more light in the second level but I cant figure out how to work around the top plate at 5 foot something. I’ve been trying to design 6′ gable dormers, but keep convincing myself that the top plate needs to be continuous. Has anyone asked for this same layout with second floor gable dormers and can that be done?
    Thanks in advance, great site.

      Diane, you would need design/engineering services to determine the size timbers necessary. We do offer those services here.
