Nothing says picturesque country living quite like this post and beam barn near Des Moines, Iowa!
From the gambrel roofline to the iconic red color, this barn carries with it every bit of country charm. This 40 x 72 ft eye-catching gambrel post and beam barn features a 15 ft partially enclosed lean-to and 2,880 sq ft of space on the main level. To maximize the usable space, the second level includes a full loft, with an open viewing area to down below.
Three more notable items:
- The soaring ceiling. Take note at how high the ceiling in the loft is! From base to peak measures 26ft! The height from the bottom of the queen post to the bottom of the collar tie is 20 feet, and then from the collar tie to the peak is 6 feet.
- The lean-to. This design features a partially enclosed lean-to that allows for covered outdoor space on the open side of the lean-to and extra workshop space in the enclosed side.
