Our barn and shed plans guide you through the building process. They consist of drawings with dimensions and there is a materials list included for each plan. Printed on heavy paper ranging in size from 20" x 25" to 24" x 36" flat, they are folded like a road map to ship out in an envelope to you.

Better Barns plans aren't limited to traditional barns. Our designs can be used to build a writer's studio, woodworking or hobby shop, potting shed, music practice room, or pool cabana. Our buildings are tastefully proportioned and architecturally pleasing. They lend themselves to a diverse range of uses, limited only by your imagination.

We do not have building support and unfortunately cannot help you with your building project.  Be sure you have professional help or a friend or family member with building experience to go to for advice and consultation before and during the project.

Please order online, call us with credit card information or send a check.  There is state sales tax if you are in Connecticut.

For info on shipping outside the US please email us.
