American Barns are designed to keep everything under one roof. During the summer months it provides cool breezes through the building, and will be warm and dry in the winter.
We can supply internal stables at the same time, or return at a later date to retro-fit partitions. The barn design does not require internal partitions to add strength or support to the structure in any way.
Barn widths are either 10.2m or 10.8m. Barn lengths are entirely the customer's choice. Most applications are multiples of 3.0m, 3.6m, or 4.2m lengths.
Internal tack rooms can be provided to replace an internal stable. Tack rooms are fully lined and fitted with a strong, flat roof to provide security and further storage space.
Timber internal sections are made from 4x2" framework with double uprights on all doorways to provide a robust structure. Talkgrilles are standard in the front walls and can also be fitted to partition walls. Large 6" square posts with 9x3" trusses and 6x2" purlins make for a strong building, giving years of service against the worst of weather.
Large sliding doors and gable end vents feature as standard. In the example above, a personal door has been fitted within the right hand sliding door to provide access without having to open the larger door.
Different designs can be accommodated. The American Barn above had large curved doors at the end, a design feature our customer wished to reflect throughout the building.
