This barn-style home was built using a kit-set barn process. The process of creating a timber frame barn style home is simple and similar to any other traditional build. Heritage Timbercraft is a trusted partner in the building process, from design and engineering to building permits. Their simple step-by-step process will guide you from choosing the right size and design to getting it up on your site. Here are some steps to expect when building a barn.
Step 1. Connecting with your barn building project. Once you have made contact with the builders, they will learn more about you and your needs for your barn-style home. Any ideas that you like are welcome so send us any drawings and images that reflect your taste, style, and taste. The team will then match your budget and project with one or more Kit-set Heritage Post or Beam Designs. These designs are designed to maximize the space and frame, and keep the barn economical. The standard Bay modules are more cost-effective than using them. They can easily add or subtract bays and add additional timbers to your needs, such as if your barn is to be used as a secondary structure with the cladding attached directly to the beam frame and post.
Step 2. Step Two. They will create a 3D model of your timber frame and dimensioned drawings based on your feedback. This will allow the builders to provide a price for the frame and the basis for your floor plan.
3D Concept Design. Based on your feedback, they will refine the scope and work with your to create a 3D concept for your barn home. This 3D includes exterior elevations with window and door openings, floor plans, as well as interior 3D images. They can meet face-to-face, by phone, and/or schedule a zoom meeting. The first session should last between 2 and 3 hours. The second session should last 1 to 2 hour to discuss the concept and begin the first draft. The concept will allow you to imagine your home from different angles and in proportion to the average person’s size. This process also includes looking at the roof pitch and mezzanine areas. Once you are satisfied with your concept, they will create a high quality rendered image to give a feeling of the final product.
You can make the most of your barn by adding mezzanines or lean-tos to the frame. This will allow you to save significant money on your barn style kit rates. This will give you a basic idea that you can then present your local builder with to get an estimate of the costs.
