Your local lumberyard will gladly supply you with stock plans that you can use. Although, these are going to be your basic cookie cutter plans.

Well, that’s not very helpful is it?

If you wanted cookie cutter plans you probably wouldn’t have searched the internet for ideas would you? As a matter of fact it is possible that you already went to the local lumber yard and gave them your ideas. You probably heard things like “well this is what we have in stock” or “we can’t design a barn like that” or “I hear you, but this is what you want instead” How insulting is it to have someone tell you what you want?

We hear stories like this all the time. That is why it is our focus to give you practical ideas and advice so that you can develop a plan for the barn that is perfect for you.

Here are a few pages that are meant to inspire you to dream about your barn and imagine what it will be like. Feel free to browse these pages, get some ideas and let us know how you would like your barn designed.
