Barn Hardware DIY Kits

Introducing Our new Barn Hardware DIY kits!

We have put together the hardware you need to build that majestic post and beam barn you have been dreaming of! All the bolts, plates, brackets, and timber screws are there.

Included in your DIY kit are…..

Solid Steel Plate Timber Brackets

These T-Plate timber brackets are made from 1/4″ thick steel, cut on a cnc plasma machine. They have 9/16 inch main holes and 1/4 inch holes for temporary assembly screws. Also included in your kit are bolts and lock nuts needed to install these brackets.

They come bare steel, with no finish, but they can be powder coated for a small fee. Standard color is flat black, but other finish options are available, just ask.

These plates make it easy to connect timbers together. This makes for an extremely strong joint, and an extremely strong modern timber frame.

Check out the video below to see just how easy these are to install!

What if I love these awesome traditional post and beam barn designs, but I live outside of your shipping zone for a full kit?

What if I have lots of trees on my property and want to build one of these barns with my own lumber?

These are two of the most frequent questions we get here at Barngeek.com. We have heard you, and we have a solution….

T plate Uplift = 1260 F1 = 1425

U Bracket Uplift = 1260 Down = 11450

Solid Steel Post Anchor Brackets

This Post Anchor bracket is made from 1/4″ thick steel, cut on a cnc plasma machine. It has 9/16 inch main holes and 1/4 inch holes for temporary assembly screws. Also included in your kit are bolts, and lock nuts.

They come bare steel, with no finish, but they can be powder coated for a small fee. Standard color is flat black, but other finish options are available, just ask.

These brackets make it easy to connect your post to your foundation. This makes for an extremely strong anchor, and an extremely strong modern timber frame barn. If the old timers had these available 150 years ago, they would have used them to build their barns.

Rigid Structural Timber Screws

These screws are the secret to building a post and beam barn at low cost.

They drive deep into the timbers and they hold tight! Most of the timber joints in a modern post and beam barn are held together with these awesome screws. Included in your kit are various sizes depending on the design of your barn.

All of the screws you need to hold the timber frame of your barn together are included in your hardware kit. You will need to provide your own fasteners for your board and batten siding, roof sheathing, etc.

We offer the following screws in our Hardware kits:

3/8″ x 8″ RSS screws (Timbers)

5/16″ x 5 1/8″ RSS screws (Purlins)

5/16″ x 4″ RSS screws (Girts)
