Gambrel Barn Kits
When you picture a barn in your mind, you probably picture something pretty specific: a large timber frame building with cross supports, a huge double door in front, and that distinctive roofline that separates a pole barn from a barn: A Gambrel roofline. That roof design is what gives Gambrel-style barns their name and defines their traditional barn look.
A Gambrel roof uses a combination of two different pitches on each side of the structure, with a gentle slope above a steep angle. This roof style maximizes interior space near the roof while still allowing precipitation to roll off the building efficiently and effectively.
Originally, Gambrel-style barns were built entirely of local timber. Today, you have more options. A lot more. With a Gambrel barn kit from Worldwide Steel Buildings, you can enjoy the best of both worlds: The classic, old-school look you’re after with a new strength that wasn’t available in traditional wood barns.
Our steel building kits offer a variety of floor plans, including second floor options, half trusses and overhangs that allow them to be used not just as farm or horse barns but as barn homes or guesthouses as well.
Available in steel or wood secondary framing with do-it-yourself construction in mind, Worldwide Steel Buildings’ Gambrel barn design is a great choice when you’re after a classic look with modern strength and durability.
Traditional Look, Modern Durability
Although they look classic, today’s Gambrel barn kits from Worldwide Steel Buildings are much more durable than what your parents or grandparents once owned.
Because everything in our Gambrel-style metal building kits is made from steel, from the trusses to the roofing, they’re more resistant to corrosion, weather damage, fire, and standard wear and tear. That means from delivery through the decades, the pricing of your steel Gambrel building will beat traditional construction as well. Lower construction costs, lower maintenance costs, same classic design. Plus, Worldwide Steel offers an industry-leading 50-year structural warranty on all its steel building kits, and our Gambrel barn kits are no exception.
With their classic look and modern steel features, Gambrel barns can be designed to fit whatever your needs are. Check out some of the designs and builds our customers have completed recently:
