  • 6' wide by 7' tall roll up shed door on 12' end wall.
  • 35" by 6'9" tall pre-made shed door on wall leading out onto the porch.

  • 2x4 wall framing 16" on center
  • 2x4 truss construction spaced 24" on center
  • Plans show LP 1/2" Smartside siding panels however you may use siding of your choice.  If you prefer to go with lap siding you will have to sheet the walls first with 1/2" osb
  • 6' wide shed ramp in front of the 6' roll up shed door on 12' end wall.
  • Use cedar trim, pvc trim, or trim of your choice.  Plans show cedar trim on roof, doors, and corners.

This barn has a 6' wide by 16' long porch that you can use for any number of purposes like storing firewood or just setting up a few chairs and lounging and taking it easy. Porch construction is easily built on the opposite side if you prefer.

You have the option of going with a nice 6' roll up shed door or building a set of double shed doors instead. The side with the porch on it has an entry door that is about 36" wide but can be framed to your specs.

Plans also come with instructions on how to do framing for adding windows wherever you might want some extra light coming in.

A nice big loft in this 12x16 barn with porch

I have even included plans for adding a nice loft for all that extra storage you may need up in the ceiling area which is very roomy indeed with a loft floor to ceiling height over 5.5'. And this loft can be expanded to whatever length you need. 8' is shown in the plans.
