Little Barn Plans for Small Farmers, Homesteaders and Hobbyists

If you have a small farm, homestead, market garden, mill, country business or serious hobby, you should take a look at these barn blueprints. Many of these barnyard and backyard barn designs combine storage spaces, vehicle parking, small animal shelters, shops, studios, greenhouses and potting sheds into one economical pole-frame building. Others are inexpensive all-purpose outbuildings that can help you with all of your work and storage needs.

"Thank you for the plans. We finished our barn in August...fits right in with the rest of our buildings!  We're using it as a goat barn with two run-in pens, and an interior ramp to allow the goats to look out the hayloft door.  The plans were very well drawn and easy to follow." - K.H., Poplar Grove, Illinois
