It’s been a while since I’ve posted any projects because I’ve been building our kitchen cabinets for what seems like forever(project entry forthcoming). But, now that the cabinet project is wrapping up I decided to sneak in this Toy Barn build. This is going to be a Christmas present for my nephew who is big into tractors. I got the “plans” from skecthup user sketchy-brian. I really like his simple with a bit of detailed design. I modified it just a bit with some sliding doors. The links to sketchy-brian’s barn and my modified is listed below.

Very cool! Can’t wait to see bails of hay and a tractor too! The kid is going to love it!

Wonderful! That must have been a lot of fun to build, and will be to play with as well! When he outgrows it, he can store penknives, firecrackers and other contraband in the lofted area. Excellent.

Hi Pip. I’m new here. I searched the internet for toy barn plans and this was definitely my favorite. However, I cannot figure out dimensions, etc. I don’t know anything about this site…I can’t figure out how to download the plans.

I really want to build this barn for my son. He asked Santa for a toy barn a few days before Christmas. I didn’t want to buy one because the affordable ones that I have seen are cheaply made. And I couldn’t talk my husband into making one the day before Christmas lol So I decided it would be a nice family project.

Thanks so much for any help you can give me. I tried to send you a message but this site requires a new user to have 5 posts before sending a message.

Have your say...
