Loft Barn Features
Everyone loves a classic New England Barn with board & batten pine siding and a metal roof. Our barn comes with a set of 6-foot-wide, 2-inch-thick, double pine doors with a treated ramp for easy access. This spacious post and beam structure works well as a livestock shelter, or as a jumbo backyard storage shed. Protect your riding lawn mower, snowmobiles, ATV’s, snow blower and lawn furniture by keeping them in this secure barn. The open floor plan allows for a roomy workshop space, or partition off the interior to convert it into a summer cabin. Farm animals can be safely housed in this barn too. The 16-foot-wide barns come with a loft, perfect for storing hay and other farming supplies.
Choose Your Size & Type
Start by choosing your size and preferred format. Purchasable sizes range from 14’x20′ to 16’x30′. We offer complete shell structures as pre-cut kits. We ship kits anywhere within the Continental United States and parts of Eastern Canada.
• Complete Shell – With this package you get everything needed to set up an uninsulated barn. Floor system, wall and roof framing, siding, a metal roof, and a double door come with this package. The shell makes a wonderful backyard storage shed, livestock barn or spacious workshop. The barn may be ordered as a Pre-Cut Kit delivered anywhere in the Continental United States and parts of Canada. 14-foot-wide barns may be purchased fully assembled if your site is accessible and located up to 300 miles from our factory in South Londonderry, Vermont.
Each type of building comes with default options that match our specifications. However, if you want to personalize your building, we have made that process a breeze. As you go through each step, you’ll be able to pick and choose which options you want.
• Strengthen – Our post and beam Barn was designed with New England weather conditions in mind. But that doesn’t mean you can’t strengthen it even more. Consider ordering a treated floor system if you are using the building to store a lot of stuff, especially if it will be placed in a damp location. The floor joists and roof rafters can have their weight rating increased by upgrading from 24” on center to 16” on center placements. Termite shields and shed anchors will provide additional protection too.
• Personalize – Enhance the look of your barn by choosing a different siding, roofing, or floor decking. We offer a variety of pine and cedar siding choices. Roofing material comes in a variety of corrugated metal colors, The flooring can be upgraded to tongue and groove. If you need some barn ideas, we have suggestions. We think the standard set up is pretty perfect for livestock shelter use. But if you are planning on converting your barn into a workshop you might want to add a few cosmetic touches. Shiplap siding is streamlined, classy, and easy to paint. CDX plywood decking is rugged, but if you want a floor decking with elegance you should splurge on the pine tongue and groove.
• Add-Ons – A premium trim package creates a polished look to the roof while using enclosure strips to close up the gaps in the metal roofing rib pattern. If you need some storage for your larger handled tools add some peg racks to the wall framing. Workshops or cottages might benefit from a woodstove. We sell roof flashing that can be installed in your assembled build or shipped with your Pre-Cut Kit.
