20×40 Gable Barn Plans with a full loft…
With a full loft you can enjoy a total of 800 square feet of space above, that regular pole barn designs just don’t offer. Use it to store hay, or an out of the weather place to hide out after chores. Sometimes you just want to get away from everything, shut off that cell phone and lay back in the hay. Doesn’t that sound relaxing? The sweet smell of the hay and the sound of the gentle blowing of the horses interrupted by the cackling of that Rhode island red hen announcing to the world the arrival of a freshly lain egg.
