20×30 Gambrel Barn Plans
with 10×20 lean-to

These 20×30 Gambrel Barn Plans are a great choice for the homesteader or farmer who wants a little more room in the loft for feed and tool storage. This barn would also be a great choice for a barn home or barndominum, with an optional lean-to for a covered porch.

There are 4 bents and 3 bays in this barn. With 19′ of clear span there is ample room to move around and work. There is 1200 square feet including the loft and it will only take up 600 square feet of space on your property, making this a perfect barn for a small acreage farm or a beautiful garage to house your tractors or classic cars.

This gambrel barn is the right size for a few cows or a small herd of goats or sheep. There is ample room for a milking stand, feed storage, and bedding.

This barn is also the perfect size and style for a wedding barn. Can you imagine what this barn might look like with fairy lights strung across its beams? The upper loft is perfect for bride and groom changing rooms or even a honeymoon suite.

Check out the video below for a photo tour of this barn after construction! Can you picture this barn on your property?
