The raised center aisle sets the tone for this gorgeous 32×28 monitor barn and creates lots of possibilities! Also called a raised center aisle barn, that tall ceiling can give you a huge volume feel. Or you can floor all or part of it to use as a sleeping or storage loft. If you enclose the entire frame you’ll have 896 square feet between the posts. But you could also leave one or both of the eight foot wide wings open to use for a porch or animal and equipment shelter.
The center aisle of this 32×28 monitor barn is sixteen feet wide with a ceiling that soars to 16’-9”. That makes for a very spacious feeling. You can carry the 8×8 posts to the ground, or set them atop an optional masonry pier foundation. The posts and plates are 8x material for a sturdy structure that will be built to last. Rafters and knee braces are 4x material.
