Small Barn '16Â x 20' w/ "EZ Bild" Truss System - Bldg Plan
This small barn offers 320 square feet of space with 6 foot walls and and over 10 feet of peak roof height. It's built using our truss system that creates such a strong frame, it needs no sheathing to make it structurally sound. In fact the first year we built thisÂ barn, we covered it in plastic and had an immediately functional shelter for our hay and barn tools.Â The next year, all on a cash basis, we ordered steel siding to match our indoor riding arena. We had quotes of $12,000 to have one built, but we did it ourselves for about one third that cost! The truss system can also be erected by one man with no special tools. ThisÂ barn has a thousand uses, and the plans were easilyÂ approved by our local municipality. A building permit was easy to obtain.
