If you are looking for a sizable structure with simplified joinery, look no further than this 30x40 post and beam barn.  With each level at 1,200 square feet, that means 2,400 enclosed square feet for you to utilize - make it your barn or barndominium!  The queen post construction allows for plenty of window options on the gable ends. And this 30x40 post and beam barn is a full two levels. The top of the lower girt stands over 9 feet tall. The top plate is 8 feet higher and the second floor ceiling climbs up from there another 9 feet, making the second floor high volume. We have not located a stair well- adapt the floor framing to place that wherever it suits you. 

There are some timber frame elements in this 30x40 post and beam barn. A scarf joint creates the needed length in the top plates. And there are shallow housings for the knee braces (no mortise and tenon, however). Most of the connections are made with structural screws and Timberlinx connectors. So if you want enjoy the strength and character of  heavy timbers without having to cut intricate joinery, this frame will suit you just fine.

When you make your purchase, we will email you links to download the PDF plan sets.  The construction set has 11 pages of 2D and 3D drawings - including  axonometric, floor, loft and roof plans, and sections, elevations and details. The 22-page piece drawing set shows you every timber in the frame with each cut dimensioned. And it’s keyed to the production diagram so you kow where everything goes. We also include timber and connector lists so you know everything you need to purchase.
