This beautiful barn home was built by Sand Creek Post and Beam. They build wood barn home kits that feature the strength and beauty of post and beam timber frame construction. They first build the custom barn kits at one of their facilities in Wayne, Nebraska, and when they get all the details done right, they disassemble it and ship it to the customer. Their custom designed barn kits have been used as lake houses, full-time residences, cabins, loft apartments, secondary homes, and combination use barn and home. There is something about a barn home that is both rustic and elegant. Their barns are pre-manufactured and shipped as a kit, and built to last generations.

It's fun to take a look around on the site and see the wide variety of custom barn kits that they have designed. Each one is unique and its fun to see the different things they can be used for. It's also nice to take a look at how different people make use of these unique spaces, and how they differ on both the exterior and interior of the barn design. The Sand Creek Post and Beam system of building barn kits are the perfect blend of customization with pre-manufacturing. They take each customer’s one-of-a-kind custom barn design and pre-build the complete barn frame as well as handcraft each window, door and cupola in one of their plant facilities. Every barn kit and accessory are made following vert rigorous quality control standards to ensure a superior barn kit product.Once the barn kit is completed, the frame is disassembled, and everything is packaged, labeled and shipped to your future barn property. You can enjoy the convenience, ease of construction, quality control and economies of a pre-manufactured structure just like the barn kit companies of over 100 years ago!

It used to be that you would only see barns built on farms. Typically barns were an agricultural building that was used for the housing of livestock and storage of crops. Also, barns may be used for equipment storage, as a covered workplace, and for activities such as threshing. In the United States, you would find older barns that were built from timbers hewn from trees on the farm and built a log crib barn or timber frame, although stone barns were sometimes built in areas where stone was a cheaper material for building. In the mid to late 19th-century barn framing methods in the United States began to shift away from traditional timber framing to truss framed or plank framed buildings.
