As a response to customer interest we are developing a new range of kit-set barn frames in the new year. These frames will be made from new milled timber from out sawmill based at Mohaka River Farm, Hawkes Bay. This will provide a range of more affordable barn frames for main houses, secondary dwellings / garages (75 m2) and agricultural barns including hay-sheds. These structures will be available pre-engineered to streamline your building consent application and will all have been made locally with traditional craftsmanship.
Once you have chosen your barn you can either complete your design with your own designer or architect or we can supply the full design and architectural service for you.
In addition we are also offering timber cladding options and barn doors as part of a bigger Kit-set package. If you would like to know more email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Small Barn Home (72 m2). This is a classic small barn ideal for a secondary dwelling. It ioncludes 200mm x 200mm posts as standard and 250mm x 200mm tie beams. We currently offer the barn in Douglas Fir milled on our farm. The barn frame can be aged with salt solution to look rustic or oiled to show the beautiful grain depending on your preference. The Kit-set comes delivered to site with full assembly instructions and hardware. Alternatively our experienced team can raise it for you anywhere in the country. Kit-set prices start at $46 000
Small Barn Garage with guest accommodation (72 m2). We have added horizontal girts for securing the cladding for a beautiful workshop or garage space as well as floor joists and barn doors for the garage. Kit-sets including cladding, sarking, perlins and doors start at $88900.
Traditional English Barn (100 to 160m2). English Barns offer true second story living as well as the ability to have a wider barn with the queen posts supporting the rafters. Frames start from $530/m2. Contact us if you are interested in this option.
The Montana Barn. This design is a classic with lean-to’s on both sides of the barn frame. This offers affordable ground floor space which is perfect for expanded living, guest bedrooms or porches. As a rule of thumb a barn home like this is likely to cost $3000 to $3500/m2 all up in areas where normal build prices are around the $2500/m2.
Ultimate Kiwi Barn. This large 270 m2 design is based off some kiwi barns that we have come across where trusses are used through the central bay. This option provides space for a large workshop, car storage, guest bedroom and or large function venue offering the beauty of new Macrocarpa or Douglas Fir Timber oiled or treated with salt solution to create an aged look. Kit set prices start at $121 000 ($458/m2 ground floor area) including transport to site. A full raising package costs may cost about $20 000 on a slab prepared by the owner. Note door prices are additional.
Our standard Kit-set doors are made from aged Macrocarpa or reclaimed totara with antique barnboard or reclaimed hardwood features. Our standard door is a stile and rail door 50mm thick which can be used as a hinged or sliding door. For large doors we have some alternative hinge options.
