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.

    Where do I find the lumber for this I’m use to seeing 4×4 4×6 but is this bigger and are the plans engender plans

  2. Does this plan include a cut list for first floor joists so it can be built for a crawl space foundation?

    1. Brice Cochran

      No, it does not have the first-floor framing plan. If you purchase this plan we can send you another one that has a floor system, it is not this large but you will have the basic dimensions and joinery details for it.

  3. What is the height from the ground floor to the top of the second floor joist? What is the overall length of a corner post?

      1. Thank you Katrina. This plan almost looked too good to be true, but with those dimensions you gave, this place must be a real gem when it is done! Have any customers sent back finished photos?

  4. Hi folks, would like to increase gable and eave overhang to 48″. Would this require a re-design, or just an increase in rafter size?

    Also, do you have a ball-park total board footage so I can quote with sawyer?
