24×36 Gambrel Barn Home Plan


SKU: 43608 Categories: , , Tags: , ,

If you want to maximize headroom on your second floor, think about building this 24x36 gambrel barn home plan! The dual roof pitches give this frame its characteristic shape, and gives you more space on the second level. You can tuck plenty of storage into the space outside of the loft posts. This plan is designed with a large dormer to bring light into the second level, and a shed roof along the first level to use as a delightful sitting porch (of course, you have the option to enclose it). This plan is designed to accept your cladding materials, as indicated below.

  • Outside to outside of posts measures 34’-11 ¾” x 22-11 ¾”” to accommodate finishing with 5 1/2" studs and 5/8" furring strips behind posts. There is a 5/8" gap for drywall to be installed after the frame is put up and walls are installed.  Additional 12-6 ⅛” porch shed.
  • Loft dimensions to outside of timbers: 13 -6 ¾” x 23’-4 ⅝”
  • Height to top of ridge is 22’-8 11/16”; to top plate is 11’-7 11/16”, to girt is 9’-4 ¾”
  • Roof pitch at the top of gambrel is 6:12; lower portion is 20:12.  Shed roof pitch is 2.5:12
  • Square footages, finished as noted above: Main floor 864 sq ft; Loft approx. 315 sq ft; porch approx. 435 sq ft
  • Plan utilizes 8560.77 board feet
  • Queen post trusses allow for plenty of windows on gambrel ends

When you buy this plan, you will also gain access to the 24x36 Gambrel Barn Plan -  a version of it designed  as a barn (with no allowance for 6" exterior walls). It measures actual 24x36 from outside to outside of the posts.  Two plans for the price of one!

On top of all that, we include an  architectural plan with this frame fully realized as a three bedroom home!

You will receive links to download the PDFs as soon as you purchase this plan. The construction set contains 12 pages full of the information you need. There are plenty of 3D drawings so you can see what you are building. There is an exploded 3D showing all the timbers, labeled to correspond to the piece drawings.  We provide a post plan, loft plan, and rafter plan. There are also longitudinal and transverse sections, as well as plenty of detail drawings explaining the finer points. We also give you a whopping 56-page piece drawing set, showing you every cut on each timber, fully dimensioned. In addition, you will receive a link for the connector, parts and timber lists, to make purchasing your materials easier.
