Graber Post Buildings makes the owner’s dreams come true

When the owner of this classic red barn was looking for ideas prior to construction, he paid a visit to Graber Post Buildings. His primary goals were to shelter his horses and also have a small workshop, and he wanted one structure to achieve both.

After spending a few hours with Graber’s building designers, they were able to make his dreams come true. Once the dirt work began, it was a mere three months before the barn was complete. It is set on Graber Post’s 3-Ply 2″ x 6″ Nail-Lam and topped with their Engineered 40′ 4/12 16″ OH Trusses, all wrapped up with G-Rib 29-Gauge Metal Panels in Dark Red and White.

Ten 60″ x 60″ Pella Vinyl Fixed Windows let in tons of light, while an overhead door, a pair of slider doors, two entry doors, and a dutch door provide access to the full interior. The 10′ x 40′ x 10′ hipped porch provides additional covered storage.

With this 40′ x 60′ structure, the owner has plenty of room to take care of his horses. There’s also enough space for the necessary day-to-day farm maintenance in the separate workshop area. FBN
