Outbuildings come in all shapes and sizes, with factors such as use, age and available materials all playing a part in the final product. For contemporary property owners planning to install an outbuilding on their land, there are a number of additional considerations to bear in mind. From the need for enhanced versatility through to space constraints, modern outbuildings often need to tick a different set of boxes to their predecessors. Here we take a look at three key reasons that a growing number of individuals are opting for a Quaker barn as their outbuilding style of choice.
Arguably one of the most adaptable barn shapes on the market, the joy of a Quaker barn is that it can be used for almost any purpose. The significant height of the building lends itself to storing larger pieces of plant or machinery that wouldn’t fit in a building of standard height. The addition of an extra level offers a great chance to create more rooms or extra storage space. The design of the barn means that very little of the interior space is wasted, and with the opportunity to design in multiple layouts, the barn can be repurposed at a later date to keep pace with changing requirements.
Land prices are rising, which means acreage is precious! As a Quaker barn is a high building, it’s often possible to end up with a good volume of interior space without the need to use a large amount of land. For space-pressed property owners, or those who want to optimise the value of their property, a Quaker barn can be an excellent investment.
Quaker barns can be made out of a wide range of materials, depending on budget and preferences. The material that’s likely to give the greatest longevity is metal. Coated metal, along with suitable thermal and acoustic insulation, offers a number of advantages. These include:
For all these reasons and more, Quaker barns are usually a good investment to make. Particularly in circumstances where land use and priorities may change over the years, a Quaker barn can be adapted and modified to suit the required purpose.
