12x16 Barn Shed with Porch

Here's a neat 12x16 barn shed with side porch built by one of my customers John Miller.

John Miller's Neat Barn Shed

This is what John had to say about the construction:

"These plans were exactly what I was looking for and were easy to modify to fit my work shop and storage needs. I modified the roof gussets and added purlins' for additional strength. I chose a metal roof for ease of maintenance and spruced up the deck posts to add visual appeal to the building. I have included the purlin modification view and finished pictures.

Great plans, my neighbors asked when we are having the 'open house party' and I get a lot of great comments from those who view the building from the walking track at the rear of our property".

John did such a beautiful job building this shed! The plans show a shingled roof but John modified the construction by building his barn with a metal roof. The metal roof offers very low maintenance and this is a great idea. In order to do this he also modified the truss gussets by adding purlins for additional strength.

Pre-built Barn Shed Trusses

Construction of a roof is so much easier using trusses as opposed to stick framing with a ridge board and Johns modification of the truss gusset plates was a really neat idea.

This small barn also features a custom built side door or you can add a pre-hung exterior entry door as John did here. He also added 2 windows to either side of the door.

Thanks again Mr. Miller for sending me these great pictures of your barn shed project! You have done a wonderful job with the construction and selection of colors.
