The Sizes are: 8×8, 8×10, 8×12
The Dutch Barns is a variation of the Gambrel/baby barn style, it has a smaller roof area but higher walls as compared to the Baby Barn style.
The walls are 5′ 4.5” high and made from 2×4 studs with a header and shoe, covering the walls are 7/16” thick OSB, which
stands for “oriented strand board” and is standard material in home construction.
The rafters are constructed from 2×4 lumber and are held together by gussets that we make our selves from OSB. Over the OSB sheathing we place vinyl siding of whatever colour you like just as long as it’s still commercially available today, we currently use Gentek, mitten and residential series of siding, which are the more common brands.
In the back wall we place an 8×8 plastic lovered vent to allow the heat to escape from the summer heat. Roofing is standard 3 tab shingles and the door opening is 4′ wide. The door has vinyl siding capped with aluminium clad for trim.
