The gable barn is a classic design defined by a triangular end under a dual-pitched roof. Gable barns appeared during the nineteenth century; the style became popular because it could be easily expanded by adding to the gable end.
Gable structures can be designed with various roof pitches to serve your unique needs, from a steeper 9:12 roof pitch to help reduce snow load or a shallower 4:12 roof pitch. The gable barn can incorporate a truss system to keep the cost down or rafters to incorporate a vaulted ceiling. Typically, gable barns are comprised of a flow-through breezeway with horse stalls and tack/storage/wash spaces on either side.
A gable barn can be customized with dormers to add natural light or head space for living quarters. Shed roofs can also be added to either side for extra storage space, a parking area, or a covered paddock. Check out our project gallery to see a wide array of custom gable barns from DC Builders.
