Baby Barns Overview
Baby barns are any outdoor structure built for additional storage. Most people use the term baby barns as a catch-all phrase covering a number of styles and designs, such as mini barns, sheds or storage barns which can make things confusing.
For our purposes we’ve broken down the styles that we make as the “Baby Barn” roof style, the “Mansard” roof style also the “Gable Shed” roof style, knowing which style you want makes the process of ordering much easier.
Floor construction starts with a set of skids that run the length of the
building, Floors are constructed from 2×6 floor joists. Sheathing over the floor frame is next using a number of materials such as 5/8 plywood or 3/4 barn boards.
Wall studs are constructed as 24 inches on center which is plenty for a baby barn. Over the walls are placed 7/16 thick OSB which is fine for this application. Over the OSB we place vinyl siding of whatever color you like, just as long as it’s still commercially available today, we currently use Gentek, Mitten and Allsco. In the back wall we place a 8×8 plastic lovered vent to allow the heat to escape from the summer heat.
The rafters are constructed from 2×4 lumber and are held together by gussets that I make myself from OSB. Rafters are placed as 24 inches on center, either 5/8 OSB or boards are used to sheath in the roof. Shingles are 25 year standard 3 tab shingles. Shingles today are now made from fiberglass. In the past they were made from asphalt.
The door opening is 4′ or 5′ wide, depending on size of barn. The door is made from 7/16
OSB placed on a 2×4 frame and has matching vinyl siding instead of vertical siding or skirting that you may see on most barns today, then capped with aluminium clad for trim, white only.
