24×36 Heavy Timber Barn Plan


SKU: 8707 Categories: , , , Tag:

Take a good look at this versatile two-level 24x36 heavy timber barn! You can build this to become your barn or your barn home - it has a total of 1,728 square feet. The proportions make it suitable for a variety of uses. Add windows and doors wherever they suit you, or you could even add dormers to the roof to bring in extra light to the second floor.

The second level ceiling peaks at almost fifteen feet above the floor, creating a high-volume interior. You can leave the ceiling vaulted or floor in all or part of the area above the upper bent girt for a storage attic. The first floor could adapt to a sloping lot to become a walkout basement. Use it for more living space, a workshop or garage – or a bit of both!  We have sized the frame so you can have 4x walls mounted to the exterior of the frame and keep your foundation at a true 24x36, trust us your foundation guys will love it.

The drawings are formatted in PDF so you download them instantly once you make your purchase. They are sized to print on 24"x36” paper, so you can run them off easily from a local printer and see everything clearly. We have included a timber list to expedite shopping for your lumber, and a production list itemizing each member of the frame. The production list corresponds to the piece drawings for easy reference. The plan set includes 4 pages of 2D and 3D drawings and 33 pages of piece drawings, showing each cut to be made on every timber.

This plan is also included in the Master Plan Bundle and the Timber Frame Home Plan Bundle 1.

Are your plans engineered?

The plans we offer on our website are not stamped by an engineer. People build our frames all over the country, and in each location, there are different requirements.  Timber species, design loads and values needed are just some of the factors engineers need to take into account in each case.  

We do offer engineering services as an add-on to our standard plans.

Complete Set of Plans and Inventory

The plans had a complete inventory of all the materials needed. There was also a very detailed set of fabrication drawings that could be used to build this barn. I was impressed with a detail and think that it is a good value for what I spent.
