    Detailed Barn Plans

    Anyone know of a good source for detailed barn plans? Getting ready to build and I would like to sub it out myself. Not really wanting a pre-fab.

    LOL, old book

    My reference may be a bit out of date. It's Farm Building Design by Neubauer and Walker, Prentice Hall, 1961.

    For a more recent reference, you might check the book section at Lowes. I think I've seen something there.

    The old book is pretty good but isn't up to date on things like laminated veneer lumber, prefabbed sections etc.

    I bought mine from DIY Pole Barns

    They will sell 1) plans only 2) plans plus materials or 3) plans, materials, and labor.

    I chose option #3 as their lumber is excellent quality, and cheaper than I could buy at Menards, even watching for sale prices.

    The labor was performed by a VERY professional crew. They work exclusively for DIY, but I paid them directly.

    First, you use the online estimator tool to get the general shape/size/configuration of your building. After you submit this, you can contact them (or they will contact you) to work through other customization. They would customize anything...I didn't run into anything which scared them. For instance, due to my "city" location, I requested shingle roof, and siding to match my house rather than steel roof and siding. No problem.

    I'm guessing you will want a horse barn, so you will have additional customization, but that will be fine with them.

    Here is a video of the construction crew building my pole barn.

    56,

    I thought seriously about doing it myself. I got the detailed instructions from Menard's, studied them at length, but really didn't like how the top of the walls were done. There were no 'top band boards' for the rafters to sit on.

    Then, I found DIY, and found that they were cheaper and delivered free, all one bundle. So, I was STILL planning to build it myself.
    Then, I saw the contractor assembly fee of less than $3000. I just didn't think I could fiddle with it for that price, especially with winter coming along soon.

    For my 24x24x10, I had quotes of $25k, $30k, etc, asking several different builders. DIY was ~$10,000 even with my LP Smartside and shingle roof.
    However, I did notice on their website that they specifically exclude shingle roofs from their options now. Maybe it didn't work out for them on my building??? Not sure.

    I had some difficulty getting my occupancy permit (from the city). DIY stood right along with me working this through the system. I was very impressed with them.

    BTW, I have no affiliation with the company other than being a satisfied customer.

    That's great to hear Tim, I'm looking at putting up a 32' x 56' x 12' and the first quote was $44k with no floor! Ouch. I'll have to give them a call as I don't want a metal exterior; shingles and siding line yours. I would like to include a dormer, but know that adds $$ especially if it's a working attic space.

    Thanks again for the real life experience.

    A post and beam building is fine. It's a new barn for our horses. I'm thinking 36 x 42. Layout as below but with a modified (much less space and much less snazzy) space in front left corner to be a bar/lounge area as in the other pic. Exterior roofline like one of the two front elevations. Haven't decided on exterior finishes yet. Not a full loft but a small area at top of stairs with seating area and railing so we can chill and look down at the babies in the barn or fling open the loft doors and enjoy the view outside.

    Although I'm thinking the back bar being all lit up is super cool and absolutely necessary.
