These easy to build post and beam livestock shelter plans will enhance any farm, large or small. This bundle includes the 16×30 Barn, 8×8 Chicken Coop and 10×14 Run In Standard do-it-yourself building plans.
Agriculture is part of American heritage, and our post and beam buildings fit in perfectly with an old-fashioned farm setting. If you are just getting started you are going to need shelter for your livestock and storage for their food and supplies. Others may want to enhance an already well-established farm with upgrades for their animals.
The Barnyard Bundle is a curated package of essential plans that teach you how to build post and beam structures that are ideal for farming. The 16x30 Barn is a 480 square foot space with a set of pine double doors. A storage loft is a great place for storing hay where horses can’t reach it. A 10x14 Run In provides a three sided shelter for horses, goats, llamas and other larger, four-legged creatures who might enjoy the shaded space. Finally, we have our 8x8 Chicken Coop. This set of coop plans will show you how to build a nesting box and small coop door that converts into a ramp!
Each set of portable livestock shelter plans includes a materials list to help you shop for all of the lumber, roofing, windows, doors, and hardware that will be needed to construct your build. Or use it to comparison shop to see how much you would save by buying our pre-cut kits. Rafter templates can be traced on your purchased lumber to get the angles just right for the roof. A color-coded cut list organizes the pieces that will need to be cut by section, and outlines lengths and angle cuts for each piece of lumber. Written instructions, with detailed diagrams will explain each step of the building process, starting with foundation options. Learn how to set up your floor systems, erect the post and beam wall framing, and get the rafters plumb. The Barn and Coop plans come with a handy exploded view diagram to use as a quick reference as you are building.
When you purchase this bundle, we mail out a hard copy printed out on 8-1/2x11” paper sealed in a ClearPoly bag via USPS priority mail. While you are waiting for the hardcopy you also get digital access to the livestock shed plans for immediate viewing. From the plans portal you can flip through the pages and utilize the table of contents to quickly get from one section to the next. Printable rafter templates can be downloaded if you need those right away, or if you mess up the hard copy templates that we mail you.
