Oak Lawn Four-Bay Car Barn Plans


Here's a practical working building for your country property. These free plans help you build it with up to four vehicle parking bays for your cars, trucks, tractors or equipment. Or, you can substitute optional storage sheds or workshop spaces for the two shed-roof areas. You can build this design at a total of 48', 50' or 52' wide. This sturdy 2x6 stud-frame building has a full staircase to a 24'x24', 24'x26' or 24'x28' loft with a convenient hatch door and lift post. Use the loft for high-and-dry storage, or finish it off as an office or studio.

You can build your barn with four big parking bays, as shown in the Floor Plan above. Or, you can build a side storage or workshop space instead of either outside parking bay, as shown in the illustrations. There's a full staircase to the storage loft, or you can install inexpensive, space-saving pull-down stairs. There's an loft door and lift-post to help you store bulky items upstairs, or substitute a window there for more light in the loft. You can match your home's siding and roof materials or use vertical board siding and optional barn-style details that are included.  All of the options and add-ons help you customize your building now or any time in the future.
