Storing Farm Equipment


When you need a place to store farm equipment you know the folks at Barn, Shed, and Carport can provide the best! We specialize in helping farmers like you get just the right size building for what you need. Clearly, metal buildings offer many advantages and benefits and that is why they have quickly become so popular in the farming and agriculture industries.

Since all of our barns, sheds, or carports are produced to order, each structure is pretty much built with the customer’s specific needs in mind. Basically, your barn, shed, or carport comes in 5’ length sections with base rails that should be properly anchored to whatever type surface the customer has or will have. Each “end” of the structure has a 6” overhang which adds one foot to the length. Some customers choose to put the entire overhang on one end resulting in a one foot overhang

Throughout time, wooden storage barns coated in a darkish red paint have been iconic images most people associate with the perfect, cute, little farm. Moreover, yes, long ago, when metal and steel were the more expensive material to use, wood was the correct choice. However, times have changed; today’s farmers now know the right choice are metal/steel barns and storage sheds. The price of wood has gone up in the last few years and so therefore, the option, which will be easier on the wallet and finances, is metal or steel.

So why would you choose a metal shed among all the other choices available on the market? We can name a few like Quality, Durability, Affordability, and those are just some of the reasons why a metal shed just makes sense. Here at Barn, Shed, & Carport Direct we also offer additional benefits like your choice of colors so you can match your home. Metal sheds are quite simply built to last a long time; it’s really hard to go wrong with a metal shed.

In addition to the high quality coat of protective paint that you’re building receives to help and keep it from common problems like rusting; your metal building is not susceptible to the things some wood sheds are. Issues with wood sheds include problems like rats chewing holes in the wood, insect infestations like termites, wood rot or one of many other common lumber problems. When you invest with us your satisfaction is guaranteed at Barn, Shed & Carport Direct; we stand behind every single metal shed that we sell to farmers like you.

Barn Shed Plans


Do you have Barn Shed Plans? The Barn Shed style is the perfect metal building for farms and country homes, and can add a cheery classic look when added to any home. Imagine all your outdoor clutter compiled into one organized space. Storage sheds will give you that extra space, and at the same time allow you to start parking your cars in the garage again.

If you own a house, at some point the need for extra storage space will soon become quite evident. Arguably the most common solution is to go out and purchase a storage shed from a local home improvement store, but quality usually suffers. There are hundreds of styles and options available when you shop online, but the iconic cherry red barn shed is arguably one of the most popular of them all.

In most cases, storage space is the key requirement a homeowner has, so figure out how much space is needed for you. A very small 4′ x 8′ lean-to style provides sufficient space for small tools, but larger items will of course require a lot more space. I strongly recommend choosing the largest size that you can comfortably afford, one that still blends in with your landscape and leaves yard space.

Is the shed going to play a prominent role in your day to day activities? If so, make sure that you choose a style and options that give you good access and provide adequate lighting. Windows and skylights provide plenty of natural light, but it is common to run electricity to the shed. For easy access, make sure that the doors are at least 34″ wide, as most lawn mowers will easily pass through.

This style consists of an A Frame as the center structure and two A frame style lean to’s on each side. The Barn Style leg height is standard 6′ leg height on the lean to’s and 10′ leg height on the center section. The Barn Style shed also offers the option of enclosing only portions of the building and is available as small as 32 ‘ wide up to a 48′ in width.
