About Chestnut Horse Barns
Floor Area of Main Barn - 480 Sq. Ft., Floor Area of Storage Loft - 330 Sq. Ft.
Main Barn Ridge Height - 20'-4", Main Barn Ceiling Height - 9'-3", Loft Height at center: 8'-0", Loft Height at outside walls: 1'-8", Roof Pitch of Main Barn: 12/12, Roof Pitch of Add-On Sheds: 4/12
ADD-ON SHEDS: Sheds are 12'x12' (144 Sq. Ft.), 12'x18' (216 Sq. Ft.) and 12'x24' (288 Sq. Ft). They are designed for use as additional stalls, open shelters, run-ins, carports, garages, tractor shelters, workshops, garden sheds, open equipment shelters and woodsheds, and are planned to be easy-to-build on either side of the Main Barn.
DOORS: The sliding doors on the front and back of the Main Barn are each 9'-6" wide and 9' high. Dutch stall doors are 4' wide by 7'-4" high. The garage doors on the add-ons open 8' wide and 7' high. Overhead doors may be substituted for all sliding doors and hinged doors shown on the plans.
CONSTRUCTION COST: Post-frame (pole-barn) construction generally costs 20-25% less than conventional stud frame construction because continuous footings are not necessary and because site work is reduced. Built by a contractor, the Main Barn can cost from as little as $8,000 to more than $18,000 depending on your location, the season, your site, and your choice of materials and options. Add-on sheds can cost as little as $1,500 for the smallest open shelter to over $7,000 for a 12'x24' garage and workshop. Material cost alone, for do-it-yourself projects, should be about half the range of these prices. Use your blueprints to get accurate estimates from contractors and building supply centers in your area. Many building centers and lumber yards will provide you with computerized material lists and pricing from the blueprints. That list will allow you to easily compare the cost of using different materials and options.
DESIGN STANDARDS: The Chestnut Barn series is engineered to meet the standards of the Northeast Regional Agricultural Engineering Service at Cornell University. The drawings should meet or exceed code requirements in most locations. Standards used: 45 p.s.f. total roof load, 40 p.s.f. total loft floor load, 10 p.s.f. lateral wind force on exterior walls and 1,500 p.s.f. soil bearing capacity. Your drawings should be reviewed by a building professional in your area to make sure that they are suitable for your site and your use.
