Hi, I am getting ready to build a 28 x 28 Garage, it'll have board and Batten siding a Gambrel Style tin roof, I am going to have a 6 inch concrete floor with two foot high knee walls, the garage will have 10 Ft ceilings on the first floor and 8 ft on second floor.

I plan for now to have either one slider or two sliding barn type doors in the front and a regular door on the side toward the front of the building.

I plan to tyvec the outside of the building and then put up the board and batten, trusses will prob be 2ft oc.

The garage will be build into a bank a bit and that is the reason for the knee walls. There not be a beam in the center so the front will be one big opening, any idea how big I should make that?

I plan to have a Hay door up top with the over hang and pulley system like the old barns.

thanks

Why not go all out traditional like this?

Gambrel Barn

I designed this one last year. You can build it with local timber and leave those imported trusses at the lumberyard.

Is this stick our timber frame? Why concrete not gravel and stone, with wood floor?

I got the 3/4 Tongue and Groove floor on the upstairs done today, Still need to do the sofits and the wood trim on the outside and get the gable trim and the ridge cap on to finish the roof off. It's coming together.

Got the windows in, door upstairs framed out and saddle in, I also added a Brace at the peak to reinforce it for the Antique Block and Tackle BARN PULLEY system that I got that still is in working shape.

Sofits are also in on the front and I started to put the outlet boxes in.

Here is the front pretty much done except for the Top door, The Picture of the two small 2x4 is the support for the dowel that goes into the building that holds the rope. The weather stripping for the garage door is behind the door trim used a Dado blade to cut the grooves.

The Pictures from the field show the 300 Plus foot Ditch that I put in last year you keep the water from coming off the hill to fast or to much, it keeps it off the main yard for the house, the itch is 6 foot deep at it's deepest and is filled with ditch stone, it empties to a stream on both ends, the dirt that came out of the ditch went ont eh downhill side to act as a back stop.

Here are some newer Pic's the Project is mostly done, I have some Fine tuning to do here and there and of course build Cabinets and what not, I still have to finish off the upstairs, it is usable now and has OSB up on the walls, but I would like to some type of wood over it, have a few ideas.

The stain is some old stuff my Grand father had, I think it was by Cabott's, I am unsure of the color since the label was all messed up. He had it on a building and liked how it looked.
