The possibilities are practically endless with this beautiful monitor-style 32×28 king post barn! Like all monitor barns, this one has a raised ceiling above the sixteen foot wide center aisle, and that space can be used for a multitude of purposes. If you are going to use this frame for sheltering livestock it’s a great place to store hay. If you’re going to make this a cabin, it would be a great space for a cozy sleeping loft – or leave the whole ceiling open for a wonderful high-volume feel! Enclose the whole frame, or leave one or both of the wings open for porches or horse stalls.
