American Barn Design Options Desktop American Barn Design Options Mobile

Often referred to as a heritage or traditional barn, an American barn is a highly versatile option when it comes to steel buildings. An American barn is characterised by a distinct raised drop on the central bay and typically has a gable roof on the central bay with symmetrical awnings.

However, our flexible design parameters also allow for the option of a skillion roof with uneven awning widths either side and you can choose to leave both or one of the awnings open.

American barns allow for parking of tall vehicles like boats, caravans, trucks and farm equipment - while allowing room for storage and hobbies under the lean-to’s on either side.

The tall middle section allows space for a mezzanine floor, a clever way to maximise vertical space. This style barn is also a great example of sheds you can live in.

A centre bay with adjoining lean-to’s offers a myriad of ways to create your dream space. Internal walls can divide sections for storage, hobbies or even a home office or sleep out.

Up-to 20 year BlueScope Steel Warranty

With its roots going back to the days of BHP Billiton, BlueScope is Australia’s oldest and most reputable steel company.

If you’re comparing quotes between us and companies who use imported steel, be sure to ask some questions about their warranty. Keep in mind that a ‘manufacturers warranty’ is only as reputable as the manufacturer itself and many of our imported product competitors regularly switch manufacturers.
