About Accessory Buildings, Outbuilding Plans, Barns & Storage Buildings…

Multi-purpose buildings designed as free-standing structures that are intended to accommodate a variety of needs are referred to as accessory building plans. These designs can include barns, large sheds, and other machine storage sheds. Larger outbuilding plans offer enough space to accommodate oversized machines and equipment such as tractors, wagons, and combines. They work well on farms, ranches and other vast plots of land. Garage and Workshops, backyard plans and Barn plans share some common features with outbuilding plans.
