PARIS BARN

 

35’ X 50’

Hand Hewn Pine

35'x 50' main barn and then it also had a 35'x 30' addition on one end so  the total size is 35'x 80' if you did both sections (quite large). 

We are selling them separately if that is what someone wants. 

This addition could be scaled down in size or used as parts to do a lean-to addition, etc. 

The posts of the main Paris Barn are 10"x10", and the tie beams are a full 10"x12" which is also excellent..

Posts are 17' long and with 10"  rafter plate total side wall height is  approx. 17' 9", very tall and great for 2nd floor and loft plan  layouts. 

It is a 3-bay barn, 18', 12' middle bay, and 20' third bay.

It is in Pristine Condition. As good as they come!

Very nice layout for 2nd floors or partial lofts in either end and a catwalk connecting them. 

It also has a great purlin system to help with roof engineering and they have great visual appeal.

We also have a swing beam long enough to put in this barn as well which will make it even more stunning.

Overall it is a great barn for conversion purposes and would make a very good  starting point for a recreation/family/party barn.

With the addition of 12" plinth blocks under each post the frame could give approx. 8' or 9' of 1st floor height with 8' or 7' high side walls on the second floor lofts. Plenty of room for windows on second floor and with cathedral ceilings in these areas head room is not a problem.
